Donovan McNabb arrested for DUI after rear-ending car
Donovan McNabb was arrested for driving while under the influence in Gilbert, Ariz., last month following a traffic accident, according to a statement from the Gilbert Police Department.
McNabb allegedly rear-ended another car at a stoplight just before midnight on June 28. Police say he was taken to a holding facility before being released. Here’s the full statement, which Deadspin passed along:
On 06/28/2015 at approximately 2335 hours, officers responded to a non-injury collision involving two vehicles which occurred just west of the intersection at E Chandler Heights Rd and S Higley Rd in Gilbert, AZ. Subsequent investigation revealed Donovan McNabb (11/25/76) was impaired by alcohol and collided in a rear-end fashion with another vehicle which was stopped at a red traffic signal. Donovan was arrested for DUI at 2358 hours and transported to the Gilbert/Chandler Unified Holding Facility for processing, after which, he was cited and released.
This is the second time McNabb has been arrested for DUI in less than two years. He spent a day in jail the last time.
McNabb, who currently works as an NFL analyst, has become known for being a critic of NFL quarterbacks — oftentimes a very harsh one. The six-time Pro Bowler spent 11 seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles before closing out his career with the Minnesota Vikings and Washington Redskins.
