Giants offensive tackle David Diehl pleaded guilty to drunk driving charges, after crashing into two parked cars last summer.

According to the New York Daily News, Diehl pleaded guilty to aggravated DWI and  impaired driving in Queens Criminal Court.

Diehl received six months probation, has to pay $1,500 in restitution and fines, and has to wear an alcohol monitoring bracelet for 90 days.

The 32-year-old tackle faces an uncertain future with the Giants anyway, with a $4.475 million base salary which could make him a candidate for release or a pay cut.

    Address the problem NFL. It’s better to do it now before another one of your players is responsible for yet another death from drunk driving.

    The league needs to step in and start suspending players who drive drunk. Clearly today’s penalties for drunk driving aren’t harsh enough to affect change.

    First DUI = 4 game suspension
    Second = 16 game suspension

    Justice will be swift and sure for Diehl. As soon as he’s cut by the team owned by The Great Roger Goodell’s pal John Mara, there will be a significant suspension handed down.
