DONOVAN McNABB is facing DUI charges in Arizona for the second time in 18 months.

Yesterday, after word got out about his latest arrest, the former Eagles quarterback attempted to address the situation on his weekly radio show.

His explanation came up as short as one of his worm-burners.

"There was a story that was released, and I want everybody to be cognizant of it, because I am very aware of it, handling the matter at this particular point," he said. "But at this point, I have no further information, and as we continue on with the situation, then we'll let it handle as it will handle itself."

McNabb was arrested just before midnight on June 28 in Gilbert, Ariz., after a non-injury collision with another vehicle.

"While Donovan spoke, I noticed a strong, fruity odor on his breath," one officer wrote in his report. "I noticed Donovan's eyes were watery and very bloodshot and his speech was slurred."

According to the report, McNabb told the officer he had not been drinking but was taking cough medicine for a cold.

The officer asked McNabb to spit out cough drops he had in his mouth and then conducted a series of sobriety tests.

According to the report, McNabb "was not able to stand without visibly swaying."

McNabb consented to a blood test, which was administered at a holding facility. Results of the test were not made public.

The report said that when an officer asked McNabb if he understood his rights, McNabb answered, "I know what it means. I've been through this before."

McNabb was arrested on Dec. 15, 2013 and pleaded guilty to misdemeanor DUI on March 27, 2014. He spent one day in jail. Nine days of his sentence were suspended.

This time, he could face a significantly stiffer punishment. In Arizona, the minimum sentence for a second DUI offense is 90 days in jail, with a maximum sentence of six months.
