Police Video Surfaces Showing Donovan McNabb Trying To Talk His Way Out Of Second DUI Arrest
Donovan McNabb was arrested on the night of June 28 for DUI in Gilbert, Arizona, and has since been "suspended indefinitely" from his current gigs on Fox Sports 1 and NBC Sports radio, where he has his own program. This is not for lack of trying -- Mr. McNabb gave it his best shot at avoiding his second DUI arrest since March of 2014.
As it turns out, "I just want to go home" is not a sufficient reason for turning down a breathalyzer test. Here are a few other of the former Eagles quarterback's best attempts at squirming out of police custody.
"I've been really sick."
-- Donovan McNabb on why he's talking to cops with a cough drop in his mouth
"I've got a cold."
-- Donovan McNabb on why he smells like alcohol
"I was just trying to go home."
-- Donovan McNabb on where he was driving drunk
"How you doing ma'am?"
-- Donovan McNabb on how nice a guy he is
Not to hit someone when they're down, but this dude can most certainly afford a cab. Hell, he could afford to pay a team of automotive engineers to fabricate a self-driving car in the parking lot of the bar he was coming from. The guy made over $106 million in his playing career and he knows that very, very well.
Must've been some cold if it was causing amnesia.
TMZ claims that police also found "lots of alcohol" in his car.
- Lo and behold Donovan McNabb was drunk. Very, very drunk. For someone of McNabb's size to get to twice the legal limit -- TMZ claims the Gilbert PD told them he blew a .17 -- he would have had to have consumed the equivalent of 11 shots of tequila over the course of four hours. Eleven. Then he drove a car.
(Full disclosure: the only reason we're using "tequila" as reference point is because police found an unopened bottle in his car.)
[TMZ] But the officials tell TMZ Sports .... the results from McNabb's blood test are in -- and he registered a .17 ... more than DOUBLE the legal limit, .08.
In fact, anything higher than a .15 in Arizona constitutes an "extreme DUI" -- which brings stiffer penalties if convicted ... especially since it's McNabb's 2nd DUI in Arizona in less than 2 years.
