Kidd, just weeks removed from his retirement, is due in Southhampton Town Court on June 20, a spokesman for the prosecuting office in Suffolk County confirmed to the Associated Press.
Kidd has pleaded not guilty to the misdemeanor DWI. If convicted, he could face a penalty of up to one year in prison.
Last July, the point guard sustained minor injuries after he crashed his Escalade into a telephone pole and hit several trees. He later posted an apology on Twitter and said he regretted the accident.
Following Kidd's introductory press conference on Thursday, he told the Daily News, “I can't say anything because it's a legal matter, so we will just let that play out.”
He did say, however, that the arrest was thoroughly vetted by Nets team officials, including GM Billy King.
“Billy and them did all their homework,” he said to the paper. “Believe me.”
