Giants offensive lineman David Diehl pleaded guilty Monday to driving under the influence and will undergo court-ordered treatment.

The 32-year-old football star admitted to crashing his BMW into three parked cars along 35th Street near Broadway in Astoria in June.

Cellphone video shows him being led away by police.

Police say his blood alcohol content was more than double the legal limit.

Diehl was treated at the scene and taken to a nearby stationhouse.

In order to avoid prison time, Diehl agreed to continue in the NFL substance abuse treatment program and complete a second program.

He also is not allowed to drive and has to wear a monitoring bracelet.

The Giants did not comment on the plea Monday.
