07:19 AM ET 07.17 | He was so blitzed, he didn't even know he'd just slammed his SUV into a telephone pole going 60 mph, authorities say. New Knick point guard Jason Kidd "smelled strongly of an alcoholic beverage, he had slurred speech, [was] very unsteady afoot and had bloodshot, watery and glassy eyes" when cops found him sitting in his bashed-in Cadillac Escalade on a Hamptons road early Sunday, according to a criminal complaint. "Defendant did not know what had happened in accident," the complaint added. "I had a few drinks," the allegedly blotto b-baller told cops.

When will these guys ever grow up?
Or was he going out to get fries for his wife?

He must have been pretty smashed if he did not know he crashed. Good thing he did not smoke a joint along with the booze.

I never understand why these high paid athletes don't pay for a car service? They wouldn't have to worry about drinking and driving or rear-ending a litigious idiot!
