New York Giants tackle David Diehl pleaded guilty to aggravated DWI and impaired driving charges, ESPN New York reported Monday. Diehl's plea stems from his arrest for crashing his car into two parked cars in Queens, N.Y., last summer. He is prohibited from driving or applying for a driver's license in his home state of New Jersey for six months and is required to wear an alcohol monitor bracelet for 90 days. Diehl's blood alcohol content was at .182, according to prosecutors. The legal limit in New York is .08. The veteran lineman must complete two drunken driving programs and pay the owners of the cars he hit $1,200 in restitution fees. The DWI charge will be dismissed if he complies with his sanctions in the next six months. He must attend three compliance conferences, with the first one scheduled on April 19. Then, he will be sentenced to a one-year conditional discharge on the driving while impaired charge. He still faces possible discipline from the NFL for violating the league's substance abuse policy. He could be fined a game check as a first-time offender of the policy that was enacted in 2010.
