Former quarterback Donovan McNabb was released from an Arizona jail Thursday morning after serving a one-day sentence stemming from his DUI arrest last December.

McNabb, 37, entered a guilty plea March 27 and was sentenced to 10 days in jail, with nine days of the sentence suspended. At 3:08 a.m. Dec. 15, he was pulled over by police for traveling 81 mph in a 65-mph zone, according to TMZ.

McNabb a Fox Sports 1 analyst, has had no comment on the arrest. News of it surfaced Thursday afternoon when Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s office released McNabb’s mugshot with no explanation. Arpaio is the self-proclaimed “America’s toughest sheriff.”

McNabb, 37, played 13 seasons in the NFL, mostly with the Philadelphia Eagles. He also played for the Washington Redskins and Minnesota Vikings before retiring after the 2011 season.
