Jets LB Donahue gets suspended sentence for Montana DUI
BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — New York Jets linebacker Dylan Donahue received a three-month suspended sentence and was fined $1,000 for a DUI crash in his hometown of Billings, Montana.
The Billings Gazette reports Donahue pleaded guilty Friday through his attorney and was sentenced at the same Municipal Court hearing.
Donahue was charged after hitting an abandoned vehicle in May 2017, causing his Jeep to flip. The crash happened 10 days after he was drafted.
Donahue pleaded guilty Wednesday to driving while intoxicated for causing a wrong-way crash in February that injured four people in the Lincoln Tunnel, a 1.5-mile (2.4 kilometer) tunnel under the Hudson River that connects Weehawken, New Jersey, to Manhattan.
Donahue spent a month in a substance-abuse treatment facility in Florida soon after the tunnel crash and told reporters Thursday he hadn’t had alcohol since then.
