Big Blue’s stalwart offensive lineman wrecked his car about 8:20 p.m. in Astoria after hanging out at a local bar to watch the Croatian soccer team beat Ireland 3-1 in the European Championship tournament. No one was injured in the smash-up.
“The officers suspected he was intoxicated,” a police source said.
Formal charges were pending early Monday morning.
Prior to the crash, a fan posted a photo (below) of Diehl, who has boasted of his Croatian heritage, wearing the Croatian soccer team’s red-and-white checkered jersey.
“Gooooooaaaaalllll!!!!!" Diehl tweeted twice, and then fired off another tweet in celebration of the win.
