Brooklyn Nets coach Jason Kidd pleaded guilty Tuesday to a misdemeanor drunken driving charge and was placed on interim probation nearly a year after he smashed his Cadillac SUV into a utility pole on eastern Long Island.
 
The judge asked him at the plea hearing how much he'd consumed before his arrest. "A couple of drinks, three or four," Kidd replied in a very soft voice.
 
"You could have killed yourself. You could have killed someone else," Town Court Judge Andrea Schiavoni. "I hope you wake up every day happy to be here."

Only three to four drinks what was he drinking if he drove into a utility pole.  Must have been hard liquor, but I agree should not be drinking and driving, like the Judge said you could have killed others.

I'm really interested to see the new Nets roster in action next season, but I wonder if Kidd can handle it. Great point guards don't always translate into great coaches (Isaiah Thomas).

These rich folks who continue to get into problems like this should just hire personal drivers for them. They've got the money. Shouldn't be too hard.

^ Obviously that would be the ideal situation, but hence why I said these rich folks who "continue" to get into these same problems. It seems as though your solution for them simply isn't realistic sadly so then they should at least consider other safety measures such as the one I mentioned. The average person might not be as fortunate to be able to do so, but these folks are so they should take advantage of it.

I meant people in general...rich or dirt poor. What's the 100% fool-proof way to avoid a DWI? Don't get drunk.

 

Guess you're right though...it probably is unrealistic for people to NOT be stupid.
