For those who are using the Telerik controls for MVC you will most likely have the following somewhere on your page or Master page
<%= Html.Telerik().ScriptRegistrar() %>
This will create issues if you then try to add any jQuery to the page including jQuery plugins.
To get around this, you can append a method to the Telerik ScriptRegistrar to disable the jQuery reference. You need to change it to
<%= Html.Telerik().ScriptRegistrar().jQuery(false) %>
And your page should be happy again.
