When David Diehl was arrested for drunk driving in June, he was given a court date of July 26, which is the first day of the Giants’ training camp. But now Diehl has rescheduled his time in court to avoid a conflict.
According to the New York Post, Diehl’s attorneys arranged a quick hearing on Friday where they updated the judge about “continuing discussions for a possible disposition” for the DUI charges, and as a result Diehl won’t have to show up in court next week.
Diehl’s next court date is set for Friday, September 7, which is likely an off day for the Giants, who open the season against the Cowboys on Wednesday, September 5.
Diehl, who started all 16 regular-season games and all four postseason games on the Giants’ offensive line last season, is accused of smashing his BMW into two parked cars after getting drunk while watching a soccer game. He apologized afterward and promised it would never happen again.
