Jeffrey Donovan Burned by Florida Cops for DUI
Splash News Online
With bloodshot and watery eyes and breath reeking of alcohol, Jeffrey Donovan told police he didn't think he was that impaired when he nearly hit a patrol car in Miami Beach, according to authorities.
"I really think I'm only borderline and not too drunk," the Burn Notice star said to officers, according to a report. He also allegedly said: "The only mistake I made tonight was drinking Benadryl and three glasses of wine."
That, and failing a roadside sobriety test, police said.
Donovan, 41, was arrested July 11 after a late-night incident in which his 2009 Audi "quickly swerved in order to avoid striking the rear of the patrol car," his arrest affidavit states.
Donovan, who refused to take a Breathalyzer test, was booked at Miami Beach police headquarters and released several hours later.
His rep declined to comment.
