Jets tight end Chris Herndon pled guilty to driving while intoxicated Wednesday for an incident last June in Rockaway Township, N.J.
The rookie will likely face a suspension in 2019 for violating the league’s substance abuse policy. A first-time offender is subject to a two-game suspension, per the NFL policy.
Herndon was involved in a two-car crash in the early morning hours of June 2. Police records detailed that Herndon’s Nissan Armanda totaled a Toyota Land Cruiser.
His blood alcohol level was well above New Jersey’s legal limit of .08 percent.
The 22-year-old Herndon, who was charged with drunken driving and traffic offenses, will have his driver’s license suspended for 90 days and be required to complete a DWI offender course.
The rookie fourth-round pick was one of the few bright spots for the Jets on the field with 39 catches for 502 yards and four touchdowns.
