Reports: Former Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb arrested

UPDATE [5:25 p.m.]: TMZ is now reporting that they have obtained the police report, and the DUI arrest took place on December 15, 2013.

FROM EARLIER: Multiple news outlets are reporting that former Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb has been arrested in the Phoenix area.

A posting on the website of the Maricopa County, Ariz. justice courts indicates that McNabb was given a criminal traffic citation in January, and has a court hearing scheduled for May 16. 

TMZ subsequently reported that McNabb was charged with DUI, and agreed to a plea deal for a one-day prison sentence. The docket on the sheriff's office website says the status of the case is "adjudicated."

So it was not immediately clear why a mugshot of McNabb was circulated Thursday by the sheriff's office. Among the first media outlets to receive the photo were two Phoenix TV stations: ABC affiliate KNXV and independent station KTVK.

It also wasn't clear if there was any relation between the "adjudicated" case status and the May 16 trial date.

We'll update this story as more details become available.
