MESA, Ariz. (AP) - Former NFL quarterback Donovan McNabb has been released from an Arizona jail after serving a one-day sentence for a DUI arrest late last year.
    
Records released by West Mesa Justice Court show the 37-year-old McNabb served his time Wednesday and was released Thursday morning.
    
McNabb was arrested Dec. 15 on the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community. He pleaded guilty on March 27 and nine days of his sentence was suspended.
    
McNabb's lawyer Stephen Benedetto didn't immediately return a call Thursday seeking comment.
    
McNabb played 13 years in the NFL after being drafted with the second overall pick in 1999.
    
He led the Philadelphia Eagles to four straight NFC championship games from 2001 to 2004 and one Super Bowl berth before retiring after the 2011 season.
