Eagles Hof`er Busted For The Syrup.


Recommended Posts

Former Eagles quarterback told police he had a cold, and blamed cough syrup for his recent DUI arrest.

According to Jim Walsh of the Arizona Republic, Gilbert police stopped him after he rear-ended another vehicle, which was being driven by the wife of a Gila River Tribal Police officer.

“While Donovan spoke, I noticed a strong, fruity odor on his breath. I noticed Donovan’s eyes were watery and very bloodshot and his speech was slurred,” the Gilbert officer wrote in the report.

Asked how much he had to drink, McNabb replied: “Nothing,” and said he had a cold and been taking cough syrup. He then opened his mouth to show the police cough drops.

McNabb was then put through field sobriety tests, which he failed. At that point, McNabb told police he just wanted to get home, saying he’d walk the rest of the way.

The arrest was McNabb’s second DUI arrest, and he could face a mandatory minimum sentence of 90 days if convicted.

Thugs way to get drunk.
