Former NFL quarterback Donovan McNabb will serve 18 days in jail after pleading guilty to a non-extreme DUI, stemming from a June 28, 2015 arrest in Gilbert, Ariz., according to Phoenix TV station KTVK.
After the 18-day jail sentence, McNabb will be under house arrest for the rest of his 90-day sentence. McNabb is scheduled to begin serving his jail time on Nov. 30.
The 38-year-old was charged with DUI after rear-ending a car stopped at a red light around 11:35 p.m. on June 28. Police were called to the scene and McNabb was arrested and charged after it was determined that he was "impaired by alcohol."
Last week, McNabb said he didn't have a drinking problem.
"Absolutely not," he said, via the Associated Press, during a visit to Syracuse where he was having his college jersey retired. "Absolutely not. Could that have been avoided? Absolutely. I'm not running from it at all. But is there a problem? Absolutely not."
McNabb played 13 NFL season, including 11 with the Eagles where he was a six-time Pro Bowler and led Philly to four consecutive NFC Championship Games. He ended his career in Minnesota after a brief but forgettable stop in Washington.
