Sports log: Jason Kidd gets probation for 2012 DWI


Brooklyn Nets coach Jason Kidd pleaded guilty Tuesday to a misdemeanor drunk 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. In exchange for the guilty plea, Kidd agreed to speak to Long Island high school students about the dangers of drunk driving. If he fulfills his community service, his plea will be reduced to a violation — driving while ability impaired — when he returns to court on Sept. 30.
