He was being held on $100,000 bail, meaning he must post $10,000 to be released while the charges are pending.
If Kidd tries to post bond, a hearing will be held to determine the money comes from legitimate sources, court records show.
According to Lt. Pat Gengler, spokesman for the Kane County sheriff's office, Kidd was stopped for a traffic violation at about 10:45 a.m. Sunday and 12 ounces of cocaine was found in his car. He also had more than $5,000 cash.
Kidd is next due in court May 28.
