It’s time to bench Donovan McNabb. The former NFL quarterback was arrested for rear-ending another car on June 28. The cops discovered the Philadelphia Eagles legend was driving drunk and what makes this worse — it was his second DUI in two years!

This is going to get him more than a 5-yard penalty — it might put him in jail! Former NFL quarterback, Donovan McNabb, 38, was arrested after crashing his car. It turns out, the ex-Philadelphia Eagles player was completely wasted! Unbelievable. This is the second time in as many years he was busted for driving while drunk!

Donovan rear-ended another car in Gilbert, Arizona, just before midnight on June 28, reports ESPN. The car ahead of Donovan was stopped at the traffic light, according to a report released on July 6, and Donovan crashed into the back of the stopped vehicle. The state did not reveal his blood-alcohol level, but he reportedly was given a field sobriety test. He was taken to a holding facility before he was cited and released. Thankfully, no one was reportedly seriously hurt.

This is Donovan’s second offense, after he was arrested in 2013 on a misdemeanor DUI charge. Donovan served a one-day jail sentence, though it’s likely that he won’t get off so easily this time. He could have seriously hurt someone, even end up killing a person, including himself!

Donovan should have left the high impact moves on the field when he retired in 2013. Donovan started his career playing for the Philadelphia Eagles in 1999. He was with the team until 2009, taking the Eagles to four consecutive NFC East division championships, five NFC Championships and one Super Bowl. In addition to the Eagles, Donovan played for the Washington Redskins and the Minnesota Vikings.

Though Donovan never won the big game, he’s considered one of the all-time best NFL quarterbacks. With this arrest and second DUI in 2 years, he certainly won’t be considered one of the best drivers.

Rick Ross Arrested: Busted In His Bentley, Reeking Of Weed

Maybe Donovan and Rick Ross can become public-transit buddies? Rick was caught riding dirty on June 10, when a Georgia cop pulled him over due to his Bentley having illegally tinted windows. When Rick stepped out, the cop was pelted with the stink of weed. Rick was subsequently arrested and taken to jail.

How do you feel about Donovan McNabb being arrested for DUI, HollywoodLifers? Are you mad? Or disappointed?
