PHOENIX -- Former National Football League quarterback Donovan McNabb was arrested in December on suspicion of driving under the influence.

Records from the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community Police Department show McNabb was arrested for DUI on Dec. 15 at 3:08 a.m. He was clocked by radar going 81 mph in a 65 mph zone near the Loop 101 and McDowell.

He pleaded guilty March 27. He was sentenced to 10 days in jail, with nine of those suspended. McNabb served his only day in jail on Wednesday. KTAR legal analyst Monica Lindstrom said the sentence was the state mandatory minimum for a first-time misdemeanor DUI.

"I have had other high-profile athletes who have been incarcerated with no problems and this latest athlete follows that same pattern," said Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

A court website showed he has another trial appearance scheduled for May 16.

His mug shot was released Thursday.

McNabb, a Valley resident, played 13 seasons in the NFL. He spent time with the Philadelphia Eagles, a team he led to a Super Bowl appearance and several NFC East titles and the Washington Redskins and Minnesota Vikings before retiring in 2012. He made six Pro Bowl appearances.

Since leaving the NFL, McNabb has been hired as an analyst for two major networks. In 2013, he appeared on "Fox Sports Live," Fox Sports 1's flagship program.
