Dylan Donahue seeks guilty to two separate DUI charges

New York Jets linebacker Dylan Donahue pleaded guilty to two separate DUI charges this week and now awaits the NFL's word on a likely suspension.

Donahue checked himself into a treatment facility less than a month after his Feb. 26 arrest, which occurred after he drove the wrong way in the Lincoln Tunnel and collided with a bus, injuring four people, police said.

He pleaded guilty Wednesday in Weehawken Municipal Court in New Jersey after prosecutors agreed to waive three of the charges in that case. His license was suspended for three months and an interlock device was ordered to be placed on his car, and he also is required to attend a DUI education program, according to multiple reports.

His second guilty plea came on Friday in his hometown of Billings, Mont., for an arrest on May 9, 2017, just nine days after the Jets selected him in the fifth round of the NFL draft from West Georgia.

He received a three-month suspended sentence and a $1,000 fine in that case.

Donahue, who turns 26 this month, played in four games as a rookie, finishing 2017 with five tackles. An elbow injury cuts his season short.
