Fox Sports has suspended TV commentator Donovan McNabb indefinitely due to DUI charges pending against him after a June arrest.
“Donovan McNabb has been suspended indefinitely,” Fox Sports said in a statement to SI.com. “It is important that Donovan use this time as best he can to resolve his personal situation.”
McNabb was arrested June 28 for driving under the influence in Gilbert, Ariz. shortly after midnight. The former NFL quarterback rear-ended a vehicle at a red light, was determined to be ”impaired by alcohol” and processed at a holding facility.
McNabb, 38, was also arrested for DUI in December 2014 after being pulled over for speeding outside of Phoenix. He served one day in jail in April 2014 for a 2013 DUI arrest. In Arizona, a second DUI conviction carries a minimum sentence of 90 days in jail.
“There was a story that was released, and I want everybody to be cognizant of it, because I am very aware of it, handling the matter at this particular point,” McNabb said on his radio show last week, according to Pro Football Talk. “But at this point, I have no further information, and as we continue on with the situation, then we’ll let it handle as it will handle itself.”
