ASTORIA — A New York Giants lineman was sentenced to a conditional discharge in connection to series of smashups in Astoria earlier this year, the New York Post reported. The ruling frees him from reimbursing any of the damages to several parked cars he drunkenly crashed into after a soccer match last summer, the Post reported.
David Diehl pleaded guilty back in February to aggravated driving while intoxicated as well as impaired driving charges after his arrest, the Post said. He was accused of crashing his BMW into two parked cars after leaving an Astoria bar, where he was watching a Croatian soccer match, according to the paper.
Officers found Diehl to have had a blood alcohol content of .182, way over the legal limit of .08, the Post said.
His plea deal forces him to attend a National Football League substance abuse treatment program as well as two drunken driving programs in lieu of paying $1,200 in restitution for the cars he damaged, the Post reported.
