Report: Donovan McNabb Suspended Indefinitely by Fox Sports Due to Arrest for DUI

Former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback turned broadcaster has been suspended indefinitely by Fox Sports due to his recent arrest and DUI charge in June, Report by SI.com.

“Donovan McNabb has been suspended indefinitely,” Fox Sports said in a statement to SI.com. “It is important that Donovan use this time as best he can to resolve his personal situation.”

McNabb was arrested Gilbert, Arizona on June 28 for driving under the influence some time after midnight. The former Pro-Bowl quarterback ran into the back of a vehicle at a red light. The police demermited at the scene that he was ”impaired by alcohol” and took him to a holding facility for detoxification.

The 38-year-old has been charged for DUI after being pulled over for speeding near Phoenix in December 2013. In that case he served a day in jail in time April 2014 for the 2013 DUI arrest. The penalty for a second DUI conviction in Arizona is a minimum jail sentence of 90 days, but lawyer could flea for a lesser change. Depending of the condition of the occupants of the other vehicle he could also be sued for damages.

The former QB spent time in the league with Redskins and Vikings quarterback beside playing for the Eagles. McNabb works in radio as an analyst with NBC Sports before getting his gig with Fox Sports.

Only time will tell where he goes from here. My guess would be back to radio because that industry seems to be more forgiving, or as a contributor else.
