Giants OL David Diehl was arrested for driving while intoxicated on Sunday evening, WNBC-TV first reported. 

According to multiple reports, Diehl hit a couple of parked cars in Queens. Diehl was driving alone and no one was injured. His blood alcohol level was reported to be .18, more than twice the legal limit.

Diehl started all 16 games last season, including Super Bowl XLVI. In his nine seasons, Diehl has started all 140 regular-season games he has played, missing only four games in his career.

The Giants released the following statement regarding Diehl's arrest: 

“Obviously we are aware of the situation, although we have not yet had a chance to discuss it with David. 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.”

Diehl wrote the following on his Twitter Monday evening:

"I've worked hard during my career to set a positive example, and yesterday I fell far short of this standard. ... I apologize to my family, my fans, my teammates, 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."
