Football fans in South Carolina may remember Donovan McNabb for the headlines he made during his 13-year NFL career, but the former quarterback was recently in the news for a different reason. McNabb was released from an Arizona jail on April 17 after serving one day behind bars. The retired athlete had previously entered a guilty plea to drunk-driving charges stemming from a citation he received last year.
According to the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office, police clocked a Range Rover driven by McNabb at 81 mph on a stretch of State Route 101 with a posted speed limit of 65 mph. Police subsequently cited McNabb for speeding and charged him with misdemeanor DUI. The incident took place east of Phoenix, on the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community. Police did not state McNabb's blood alcohol content level at the time of the traffic stop.
