Former NFL quarterback Donovan McNabb currently works in the media, on TV with FOX and on radio with NBC Sports Radio.

His weekday show with Mark Malone follows PFT Live on NBC Sports Radio, running from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. ET. On Tuesday, McNabb addressed the report that he was arrested for a second time in Arizona on DUI charges at the top of the first hour of the program.

“There was a story that was released, and I want everybody to be cognizant of it, because I am very aware of it, handling the matter at this particular point,” McNabb said. “But at this point, I have no further information, and as we continue on with the situation, then we’ll let it handle as it will handle itself.”

Obviously, McNabb isn’t going to address the substance of the allegation, given that anything he says can be used against him in court. And with second-offense DUI in Arizona entailing a mandatory sentence of 90 days in jail, McNabb should do nothing to undermine his right to mount a vigorous defense in court.
