NEW YORK, Feb. 12 (UPI) -- New York Giants left tackle David Diehl was fitted with an alcohol-detecting bracelet after pleading to a 2012 drunken driving charge.
The lineman was arrested in June in Astoria for driving while intoxicated after his BMW crashed into multiple parked cars.
Queens Criminal Judge Suzanne Melendez ruled Monday Diehl must wear the Secure Continuous Remove Alcohol Monitor bracelet for 90 days, pay $1,200 in restitution to the owners of the damaged cars, complete two drunken-driving programs, and may not drive or apply for a driver's license in New Jersey where he lives. Diehl will also be formally sentenced to a 90-day conditional discharge, the New York Post reported Tuesday.
Police said the 32-year-old Giants star registered a blood-alcohol level of 0.18, more than twice the legal limit, when he was arrested.
"Sir, please don't drink and drive. Look what happened here. You could have been seriously hurt," Melendez said at Monday's hearing.
