Terrell Owens to Donovan McNabb: ‘Next time, call Uber’
Donovan McNabb was arrested last month for driving while under the influence, and it was his second such offense in less than two years. As a repeat DUI offender in Arizona, the former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback is facing a minimum of 90 days in jail.
Terrell Owens, one of McNabb’s most famous former teammates, told TMZ on Tuesday that McNabb’s second arrest should serve as a wakeup call.
“DUI is a very serious thing. The number of lives that have been lost from it are staggering,” Owens said. “It’s a blessing no one was hurt.
“We may not still be playing, but we still serve as role models. You have to be more responsible. Next time, call Uber.”
That’s the main thought that comes to everyone’s mind when we hear that a wealthy current or former athlete was busted for drunk driving — why not pay for a cab? Heck, some of these guys have enough money to hire a personal driver.

McNabb, who now works as an NFL analyst, hasn’t always had the best relationship with Owens. T.O. shed some light on that when he spoke last year about playing with McNabb. But in this case, it’s hard to argue with Owens. McNabb was stupid to drink and drive in the first place. Doing it a second time is asking for serious trouble.
