Former NFL Quarterback Serves One Day After DUI Arrest
Donovan McNabb, most notable for his time with the Eagles, served one day in Maricopa County Jail for driving under the influence in December of last year. The citation shows that McNabb was stopped on Loop 101 for speeding. McNabb’s Range Rover was clocked at 81-mph in a 65-mph zone. In addition to speeding, the citation included DUI charges but did not specify his blood-alcohol level. Arizona’s legal limit for blood alcohol content (BAC) is 0.08, but a person can be considered impaired with a BAC of 0.04 or higher.
The ex-football player plead guilty to the charge on March 27th. Nine days of McNabb’s sentence was suspended in exchange for agreeing to undergo alcohol screening and treatment. McNabb reported to the Maricopa County Jail on April 16, where he was booked and served the one-day sentence.
After leading the Eagles franchise to five NFC Championship Games and one Super Bowl, he played for the Washington Redskins and Minnesota Vikings before retiring in 2011. McNabb currently hosts a show on NBC Sports Radio. Both McNabb’s attorney and a spokesman for the radio network have declined to comment.
