David Diehl DUI: New York Giants OL Officially Charged With Two Counts Of Driving Under The Influence

New York Giants offensive tackle David Diehl has officially been charged with two counts of driving under the influence of alcohol, according to a Queen's district attorney's office press release on Monday. The 31-year old faces up to one year in jail

After driving a car that was involved in an accident Sunday night at approximately 8:20 p.m., Diehl was reported by a responding officer to have "a strong odor of alcohol on his breath, bloodshot and watery eyes, slurred speech and to be unsteady on his feet."

A breathalyzer exam showed that Diehl had a .182 blood alcohol content level, more than twice the legal limit for an operator of a motor vehicle.

Nobody was injured in the accident, but damage was done to the front of Diehl's 2011 BMW.

Diehl has played nine NFL seasons, all as a Giants starter.
