Former Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb spent one day in an Arizona jail for a December DUI arrest, according to the Associated Press.

McNabb, one of the top players in Eagles history, was arrested Dec 15 in Maricopa County. He served his one-day sentence Wednesday, and was released Thursday. McNabb pleaded guilty March 27, and nine days of his sentence were suspended, according to the report.

Now a host for NBC Sports Radio and an analyst for Fox Sports, McNabb came into the news Thursday, when his mug shot was released. A call to his Arizona attorney was not returned.

The 37-year-old McNabb was the No. 2 pick in the 1999 NFL draft. He spent 11 seasons with Philadelphia, leading the Eagles to five NFC championship games and one Super Bowl appearance. He holds almost every passing record in franchise history, and the team retired his No. 5 jersey during ceremony last September.
