Brooklyn Nets coach Jason Kidd pleaded guilty Tuesday to a misdemeanor drunk driving charge on Long Island and has been placed on interim probation.

Kidd was arrested last summer after smashing his Cadillac SUV into a telephone pole in the Hamptons.

He was the only person in the SUV and suffered minor injuries.

In exchange for the guilty plea, the 10-time all-star agreed to speak to Long Island high school students about the dangers of drunk driving.

If Kidd fulfills his community service, his plea will be reduced to a violation.

In response to the guilty plea, Nets general manager Billy King says in a statement, "Jason has taken responsibility for his actions, and fully realizes that he needs to grow from this experience. We are confident he will make these strides on a personal level and have a positive effect on others as well."

Kidd, a former Knicks player, was hired to coach the Nets last month after retiring from the NBA at the end of the season.
