[Old incident, never-before-seen footage.]
On June 28, 2015 retired Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb was arrested in Gilbert, Arizona on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol for the second time in 18 months.
The arrest came after McNabb rear-ended a car that was stopped at a red light. The driver of that vehicle had noticed McNabb’s truck approaching at a high rate of speed and had even honked to try and get his attention, but to no avail. Fortunately there were no injuries.
Unfortunately for McNabb, the driver of the other vehicle was the wife of a Gila River tribal police officer, who swung by the scene when he heard his wife’s suspicion that the other driver was impaired.
McNabb, then 38, told officers that he had been at a local sports bar and was “just trying to get home.”
“While Donovan spoke, I noticed a strong, fruity odor on his breath. I noticed Donovan’s eyes were watery and very bloodshot and his speech was slurred,” a Gilbert officer wrote in his report.
McNabb denied having had anything to drink, but a later blood draw would reveal McNabb to have had a blood alcohol concentration of .17. For a male his size, that takes a hefty amount of alcohol.
Donovan McNabb would later plead guilty to driving under the influence of alcohol, without the “extreme” enhancement for having a BAC over .15%. He was sentenced to 18 days in jail, followed by 72 days of house arrest with work release, 30 hours of community service, counseling, unsupervised probation, and a $6,342.23 fine.
And yes, Donovan claimed to be taking “chlorophyll” for his cold. He is apparently a plant.

I like him! He's so nice ^_^ My wife's team has been the Eagles since she was 14
"It's been a while (since you've had a concussion" uhh, the effects of a concussion can last a lifetime
That woman gonna fake some injuries and whine her way into getting some money out of this. Unless they have actual injuries they shouldn’t get paid. And doing what it seems like she is doing should be illegal.
UTILIZE ATTORNEY IMMEDIATELY
This hurts my heart.
This is the first time I could actually see someone drunk fail the eye test, you could actually see his eyes wobble. Usually it’s too hard to see on video, but you can see it here, not a huge amount but definitely drunk if not obvious from all other reasons.
Damn. Sorry to see this. Even the best of us make mistakes and get a bad break every once and a while.
This is what happens when you listen to the police, regardless of your skin color. You break the law, get arrested, then go home to your family and have the option to change your life
As interesting as this might be, as a life long Eagles fan and season ticket holder I just can’t take another 2 seconds of this dudes nauseating passive aggressiveness, let alone 28 minutes.
thought i was watching super bowl 39 highlights for a min
Chlorophyll!!!! More like bore-a-ville
But T.O. is the dude lacking in "character." Yeah, whatever.
Black Drunk Driver's Matter.
I guess this is posted because he played in the NFL. However, he is still human and we all make mistakes. He handle himself accordingly and the officer as well…SMH about the topic of this video
Sometimes that tussin hits hard
Why do you idiots lie?
All that radiator fluid on the ground… "Is your vehicle still derivable?" "Oh, absolutely!"
"I'm Donovan McNabb and I will not rest until I find the REAL drunk driver."
Officer : "If you cannot afford an attorney…"
McNabb: " Not a problem"
I wonder where he was going… or if he lived nearby
This guy was so nice and respectful I found myself feeling bad for him.
Reminds of the nursing home worker from Look Who's Talking.
My god parents taught me right from wrong I'm driving drunk I should follow the consequences if anybody else ! They also told me to use my head wisely my mistakes might be losing my job if I need a driver's license or kill somebody ! 📷🚑
