Dynamics of the nonlinear Schrödinger equation in the presence of a constant electric field is studied. Both discrete and continuous limits of the model are considered. For the discrete limit, a probabilistic description of subdiffusion is suggested and a subdiffusive spreading of a wave packet is explained in the framework of a continuous time random walk. In the continuous limit, the biased nonlinear Schrödinger equation is shown to be integrable, and solutions in the form of the Painlevé transcendents are obtained.
