New York Jets tight end Chris Herndon has had his driver's license revoked for 90 days after pleading guilty to driving under the influence, according to TMZ Sports

Per that report:

"The 22-year-old smashed into another car on the I-80 highway in New Jersey on June 2 after witnesses say he was speeding at more than 100 mph. The police footage, obtained by TMZ Sports, shows Herndon's 2018 Nissan Armada flipped on its side and badly damaged. Miraculously, both Herndon and the other driver—a 76-year-old man—escaped without any major injuries."

He reportedly failed both a field sobriety test and a breathalyzer test.

TMZ noted that Herndon's sentence included completing 12 hours of an "intoxicated driver education program" and $639 in fees and fines. It was unclear if Herndon pleaded guilty to a lesser charge, however.

It also remains unclear what punishment will be handed down by the NFL, though. ESPN's Rich Cimini wrote in June, Herndon is "subject to discipline under the NFL's personal-conduct and substance-abuse policies."

"Just not who I am," Herndon said in June, per Calvin Watkins of Newsday. "I can't really speak on some of that."

Herndon, 22, had a strong rookie season for the Jets, registering 39 receptions for 502 yards and four touchdowns.
