Donovan McNabb will spend 18 days in jail after DUI arrest
Donovan McNabb will spend 18 days in jail after his June arrest for extreme DUI, his agent told Phoenix TV station KTVK on Friday.
Thomas Connelly, McNabb’s agent, said the former NFL quarterback will serve 18 days with work release and spend the rest of his 90-day sentence on house arrest. ESPN reports he is scheduled to report to begin his sentence Nov. 30.
McNabb, 38, was arrested June 28 in Gilbert, Ariz. with a blood alcohol level more than double the legal limit. McNabb crashed into a car stopped at a red light and reportedly had a bottle of tequila in his trunk.
According to a TMZ report, McNabb pleaded guilty and was fined $6,342.23. He will also serve 30 hours of community service, enter counseling and be placed on unsupervised probation.
The former Eagles, Redskins and Vikings quarterback was also convicted of DUI in 2013, for which he served one day in jail in 2014. He was suspended from his job as a commentator and analyst for Fox Sports after his latest arrest and has not been reinstated.
