David Diehl has apologized for the incident Sunday night in which he crashed his BMW into parked cars in New York.
The New York Giants offensive lineman has been charged with DUI and according to reports he registered a 0.18 blood/alcohol level after taking a breathalyzer. No injuries were reported in the incident.
“I've worked hard during my career to set a positive example, and yesterday I fell far short of this standard,” Diehl wrote on his personal Twitter page that has more than 42,000 followers. “I apologize to my family, my fans, my teammates, the New York Giants, and the NFL. I made a poor decision that I sincerely regret, and, as always, take full responsibility for my actions.”
Perhaps Diehl will shed more light on the situation during minicamp for the Giants, which kicks off today. Otherwise, he has an initial court appearance of July 26 – the day the Giants are scheduled to report to Albany, N.Y., for training camp.
