Former Vikings QB to spend 18 days in jail for drunken driving crash


Former Minnesota Vikings quarterback Donovan McNabb will spend 18 days in jail after pleading guilty to a DUI.

ESPN reports that McNabb was stopped by police on June 28 in a suburb of Phoenix, Arizona, when he was driving while impaired.

He was sentenced to 90 days in a county jail, but will spend 18 days of those incarcerated with work release, and the rest under house arrest.

According to TMZ, he will also have to complete 30 hours of community service, undergo counseling, and pay a $6,342.23 fine.

The entertainment website he was arrested after crashing into a car stopped at a red light, with a blood test finding his alcohol level was .17, more than double the legal limit. A bottle of tequila was also found in his trunk.

It was his second DUI conviction, having served one day in jail following a previous incident in 2013.

McNabb, 38, played part of one season with the Vikings.

In 2011, he was brought in to replace Brett Favre as the Vikings starting quarterback, but after a slow start the Vikings chose to turn the offense over to then-rookie Christian Ponder.
