Sports Illustrated's Richard Deitsch announced the news on Twitter with this tweet.

According to Bleacher Report, Fox Sports released the following statement to the media.

"It is important that Donovan use this time as best he can to resolve his personal situation."

Fox Sports are right as this is the second time in the space of 18 months that the former Pro Bowler has been arrested for DUI.

His first arrest was back on December 15 2013, where he served one day in jail after pleading guilty in April 2014.

Jim Walsh reported this for the Arizona Republic when McNabb was arrested last month.

He said: "A Gilbert police officer was called to a non-injury collision at about 11:35 p.m. on June 28 near Chandler Heights and Higley roads, where the officer found McNabb's silver Land Rover had rear-ended another vehicle.

"According to a police report released Tuesday, McNabb struck a car 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,'' a Gilbert officer wrote in his report."

McNabb began his broadcasting career in 2012 after he joined NFL Network. He then joined Fox as a panelist for Fox Sports Live in June 2013. Then he became a color analyst with play-by-play man Dick Stockton for the 2014 season.
