As Josh Alper noted in the initial post regarding former NFL quarterback Donovan McNabb’s second DUI arrest, he faces something more significant than the 24 hours he spent behind bars for his first offense in 2014. It looks like he now faces a minimum sentence of 24 hours, times 90.

The minimum sentence for second-offense DUI in Arizona is 90 days in jail, with a maximum sentence of six months.

The circumstances of the arrest, including McNabb’s blood-alcohol concentration, could increase the penalties. Also, McNabb could mount a successful defense to the new charges, obtaining an acquittal through the legal process.

However it turns out, McNabb didn’t seem too concerned about the situation in the aftermath of the arrest, which happened late on June 28. On June 29, he tweeted a picture of himself holding a new pair of shoes.

  1. I’m not real surprised that he is not adjusting well to live after football. He’s wired a little differently and I always had a feeling it would go that way with him.

  2. No way he does 90 days. 90 day minimum is for people like me and my fellow commenters. You know regular middle class tax paying individuals. When you have money they play by a different set of rules. I’d bet the house he doesn’t spend 90 days in jail.

  3. Arizona is one of the harder states on DUI (especially Maricopa County where this happened). Sheriff Joe loves having celebs in his jail. Enjoy the pink underwear he makes the prisoners wear.

    What indication do you have the Donovan McNabb still has any money?

  5. If you include that final drive in the Super Bowl, this is his 3rd DUI…

    ———————————————
    Well maybe because he’s earned north of $106 million just off NFL salary alone not including the many endorsements he’s had over the years. We’re not talking Allen Iverson here. I highly doubt he’s blown through well over $100 million dollars in a decade and a half.

  7. When I was growing up I used to defend McNabb all the time to my fellow Eagles fans but as I get older I have less and less sympathy for this guy. He was a great player (with obvious flaws) but also an absolutely annoying person. I’m really surprised he didn’t take this opportunity for his usual woe is me act bc as we all know everyone is out to get Donovan (according to Donovan).

  8. Nothing that goes wrong with Donovan McNabb is ever his fault, I’m sure in time we will discover that this is no different.

  9. I’ll be shocked if the original charges are not plea bargained down to a much lesser charge…jaywalking, littering or failure to signal.

  10. I got to see the Cowboys play the Eagles in the old Texas Stadium…

    Just the day before I witnessed my Longhorns get destroyed by the Sooners at the Cotton Bowl.

    Parcells was coaching the Boys, McNabb QB for the Eagles…

    The Cowboys had Quincy Carter as the QB for that game.

    I knew for sure the Cowboys would get destroyed.

    The Eagles started the game with an onside kick and the Cowboys returned it for a TD…

    I was wearing half of my beer after that play, after jumping up and down.

    The Cowboys won that game… with Carter at QB and Hambrick at RB, against McNabb and his big bad Eagles.

    You are probably asking what that has to do with this article…

    Nothing. Just a cool football fan story.

    Have fun in the clink Donny…

  11. Just make him play QB for the Redskins this year, I promise he’ll never drive again.

    Totally agree with you. Being from the Philly area and being an Eagles fan, I’ve heard enough stories about him to know he’s a piece of trash.

  13. I have more of a problem with DWI that with someone punching a woman.
    A goon punches a woman.
    But a potential murderer drives wile drunk.

    I’d hate to be punched, but I’d rather be punched than be in a serious car accident that could require multiple surgeries and damage me for life.

    90 days in jail, sounds good to me.
    I’d rather see McNabb in jail for this than Ray Rice.

  14. My fellow Eagle fans kicking McNabb when he’s down, getting amusement from his misfortune, and saying he was an average quarterback disgust me. This is why Philadelphia gets such a bad rep.

    Donovan is the best quarterback in franchise history. He has the records to back it up. His touchdown to interception ratio is one of the best in the history of the NFL. The guy took the team to 5 NFC championships, 4 of which he played in with absolutely zero help at receiver. He never had an elite running back, Westbrook was versatile, but not elite as a pure running back. He took us to a Super Bowl, and had New England not have stole all of our signs, perhaps we wouldn’t have lost by 3. Blame McNabb all you want, the fact is he threw 50 times (way too many) for 400 yards and 3 touchdowns. Yea he threw 3 INTs, but the last one wasn’t on him. Although high, it hit LJ Smith in the hands. He should have had it. Not to mention the costly fumble LJ lost while we were driving. But nobody ever mentions him as costing us the game…

    You’d think after seeing how bad Kolb was, how inconsistent Vick, Foles, and Sanchez were/are, that you’d have a little appreciation for the guy. The team hasn’t won a playoff game since they traded him.

    I’ll admit that he wasn’t the most mature guy, and he definitely fancied himself to be a bit smarter than he actually was, but he brought a lot of great years of football to this city. Show some appreciation.
