Donovan McNabb was arrested in January in Arizona for DUI, and the arrest is making headlines Thursday because his mugshot was just released.

The Maricopa County justice website says the case type is “criminal traffic” and that McNabb received a citation on Jan. 6. According to the record, there were three times when a change of plea were discussed.

After seeing that the plea change was discussed, we speculated that he may have been arrested for DUI and was trying to work out a deal. That’s exactly what happened.

McNabb lives in Arizona and now works in the media as a radio host for NBC Sports and commentator for “FOX Sports Live.”

Rockies owner Charlie Monfort arrested for DUI, has happiest mug shot ever

Charlie Monfort mug shot
Colorado Rockies co-owner Charlie Monfort was arrested on Monday in Windsor, Colo., for suspicion of DUI, according to The Denver Post.

The Post says Monfort, 54, was also cited for driving 10-19 miles per hour over the speed limit, though it’s unclear what led to him initially being pulled over.

Monfort was released Tuesday on $2,500 bond.

The Post notes that Monfort was arrested for DUI in 1999. His BAC was more than twice the legal limit during that arrest, though he had the charge reduced.

Monfort was apologetic in a statement released on Tuesday night.

“I’m extremely disappointed in myself for the decision I made to drink and drive and the potential risk I caused to other innocent people. I want to apologize to my family, the Colorado Rockies staff, players, Major League Baseball and, of course, our fans for the embarrassment I have caused by my actions. I do understand the seriousness of my behavior and the issues that I am facing and I’m committed to do what’s necessary to deal with my problem.”

Now that we’ve gotten all the details out of the way … can we talk for a second about Monfort’s mug shot? Why does he look like he was just informed that he’s got a couple of hookers waiting for him in his jail cell? Bro, you just got busted for DUI. Wipe that smile off your face. Or is he only grinning because he knows he’s so rich he’ll beat the charges? Maybe that’s why he wasn’t sweating it.

Hey, I guess cracking a smile for your mug shot is better than making this face.

The Wilmington Star News says Shooter blew a 0.15 and was released on $1,000 unsecured bond.

Would you look at Shooter’s hair? A mug shot that great is rare. I could just stare … at the way it looks in the picture up there.

Bernie Kosar at DUI stop gave cops credit cards as his ID

Bernie Kosar DUI mug shot

When we posted about Bernie Kosar pleading not guilty to DUI charges on Monday, we noted that he actually looked somewhat sober in his mug shot. Well it turns out he was actually pretty wasted.

Kosar was pulled over for doing 74 mph in a 50-mph zone on Sunday morning. He refused a breathalyzer and was taken in on DUI charges. But during the DUI stop, Kosar seemed to reveal how messed up he was.

Some of the details behind the DUI are phenomenal (not that we condone drunk driving). According to the police report …

    - When asked to provide ID, Kosar gave the police two credit cards. When asked again for ID, Kosar pointed to the cards as if that was his ID.

    - Kosar was asked to recite the alphabet from E to W and supposedly said “E, F, G, P, L, M, N, O, Q,” which isn’t too far off.

    - When asked if he would be unable to stand on one leg for any reason, Kosar said he had a lot of surgeries on his ankles and knees because his offensive line couldn’t block.

Kosar man, what a gem. And by gem we mean idiot. And by idiot we mean don’t try this at home. Oh, and did we mention that Kosar’s daughter did porn?

NFLPA teaming up with Uber in attempt to prevent drunk driving

Josh BrentThe NFL Players Association has come up with a new idea for babysitting the grown men that it is responsible for representing. Since professional football players can’t seem to figure out how to use their money and resources to stop putting their lives and careers in jeopardy, the NFLPA is hoping a partnership with Uber will help.

Uber is a technology firm that makes a smartphone app which is essentially a digital dispatcher for people who need a taxi sent to their location. According to the New York Times, the NFLPA will be incorporating Uber into its existing system, which allows players to call a service for a safe ride. The advantage Uber will bring is that players will not have to know their exact location, because the GPS on their phone will take care of that.

“This generation is more tied to having a mobile device,” NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith said. “If we can move to a world where we are using the phenomenon to increase the safety of our players, then the partnership with Uber is a no-brainer.”

Uber currently operates in 17 of 31 NFL cities, but certain cities like Miami and Houston have regulations that govern taxi companies that block Uber from entering their markets. The service will start next week, and players will begin with a $200 credit to encourage them to use Uber.

Drunk driving has been a major issue throughout the NFL for the past several years, which is amazing when you consider the money and services NFL players have at their disposal. In addition to systems like the one the NFLPA has in place for rides, teams also provide their own car services to keep players out of trouble.

Yet even after a Dallas Cowboys player killed his teammate while allegedly driving while under the influence, players continue to turn their noses up at the law. Will a partnership with Uber accomplish anything aside from bringing more money to the league? I wish it would, but excuse me for being skeptical.

Lamar Odom arrested for DUI

Lamar OdomJust when we thought it could not get any worse for Lamar Odom, he goes out and gets arrested for driving while under the influence. As TMZ first reported, Odom was popped for DUI while cruising around the San Fernando Valley at 3:54 a.m. on Friday morning. He was arrested by the California Highway Patrol and taken to Van Nuys Community Police Station, where he was held on $15,000 bail.

According to the police report, Odom was pulled over on the freeway for driving too slow when an officer noticed him going about 50 mph in a “serpentine manner.” He allegedly ignored the police at first and drove 3 more exits before pulling over. The report states that Odom “showed objective signs of intoxication and was unable to perform field sobriety tests.”

We would like to think Odom has hit rock bottom at this point. The DUI comes at the tail end of a whirlwind week that brought us reports about the NBA veteran abusing prescription drugs and even dealing with a crack addiction. On Thursday, a separate report indicated that the Los Angeles Lakers are willing to offer Odom a roster spot if he completes a rehabilitation course. Assuming that report is true, you have to wonder if his DUI arrest will affect the offer.
