Giants lineman Diehl arrested for DWI

Diehl reportedly blew a .18 on a breathalyzer test -- more than twice the legal limit.

Giants offensive tackle David Diehl was arrested Sunday night in Queens on a DWI charge, according to police.

 

The nine-year veteran was celebrating Croatia's win in the EURO 2012 soccer tournament at Scorpio Cafe and Bar in Astoria before leaving at 8:45 p.m. and swiping multiple parked cars on 35th Avenue in his black BMW. No one was injured.

 

Diehl reportedly blew a .18 on a breathalyzer test -- more than twice the legal limit. Diehl will be arraigned Monday.

 

Diehl's grandparents were born in Croatia and he has a prominent tattoo of the country's coat on arms on his left arm. Croatia defeated Ireland, 3-1, in the country's opening match. Diehl spent the afternoon tweeting from the bar about the match.

 

Diehl has spent time at both guard and tackle since being drafted in 2003. He started every game from 2003 to 2009. Injuries kept him to 12 games in 2010, but he again started every game last season as the Giants won the Super Bowl.
