Donovan McNabb arrested for DUI in AZ in December, only now becoming public

mcnabbToday, various sources have reported that former Mt. Carmel and NFL quarterback Donovan McNabb was arrested last December for DUI in Arizona.  Apparently, he agreed to a plea deal that required that he spend one night in jail.  He reported for jail last night, and today the Maricopa County Sheriff, Joseph Arpaio, released his booking picture.  The release of the photo resulted in the news of the arrest to become public.

According to TMZ:

According to the police report, obtained by TMZ Sports, McNabb was pulled over in Maricopa County on December 15, 2013 for doing 81 in a 65 in his 2010 Grey Landrover at 3:08 AM.  During the stop, cops determined McNabb was under the influence and arrested him for DUI.

Law enforcement tells us … McNabb struck a plea deal with prosecutors in which he plead guilty to DUI on March 27 and in exchange he was ordered to serve 1 day in jail.

On the arrest report, McNabb is listed at 6’3″ and 245 lbs … in case you were wondering.

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio says McNabb was booked in the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office Detention facility on Wednesday April 16th, 2014 … and served 1 day in county jail.

Sheriff Arpaio issued a statement saying, “I have had other high profile athletes who have been incarcerated with no problems and this latest athlete follows that same pattern.”

Of course, there has been at least one other high profile athlete with a Chicago tie who spent time in Sheriff Arpaio’s jail — Mark Grace.
