Police say they got calls about a car accident in Queens around 8:45 p.m. Sunday. When they got there, they found a BMW had struck several parked cars along 35th Avenue.

 


They say Diehl was behind the wheel. They say he was charged after a breath test showed he was above the legal limit.

“Obviously we are aware of the situation, although we have not yet had a chance to discuss it with David,” the Giants said in a statement. “Since it is an ongoing legal matter, we will refrain from comment at this time, although we will say that David has been an outstanding representative of this organization for the past 10 years, and nobody knows more than David does what is expected of our players both on and off the field.”

“I’ve worked hard during my career to set a positive example, and yesterday I fell far short of this standard,” Diehl said in a statement. “I apologize to my family, my fans, 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.”
