No one was injured in the collision but police determined that McNabb was impaired and transported him to a holding facility where he was cited and released.

The 38-year-old McNabb previously served a one-day sentence in Maricopa County Jail after a bust for DUI in 2013.

After a distinguished career with the Philadelphia Eagles and a less-distinguished run with the Washington Redskins, McNabb was acquired in 2011 by the Minnesota Vikings and started 6 games before giving way to 2011 first round draft pick Christian Ponder.

In his brief tenure with the Vikings, McNabb completed 60.3 percent of his passes with 4 TDs and 2 INTs and a QB rating of 82.9. However, the Vikings won just one of McNabb’s six starts which was not what the Vikes had in mind when they acquired the veteran as a place-holder for the young Ponder.

McNabb stayed with the team for a few weeks after being benched but ultimately forced his way off the roster apparently in search of another quarterbacking opportunity. That opportunity never came and McNabb finally ended his NFL career in 2013.

Since his retirement, McNabb has taken on a new career as a broadcaster, making good use of the speech communication degree he got at Syracuse. Unfortunately his degree proved to be no help in talking the cops out of giving him a citation for DUI.
