Burn Notice Star Jeffrey Donovan Arrested on Suspicion DUI

Jeffrey Donovan, who's filming the third season of his hit cable drama, Burn Notice, was arrested last weekend for suspicion of DUI, according to TMZ

The arrest happened July 12 in Miami. The 41-year-old actor was taken into custody, posed for this lovely mug shot, and was then released. No more details beyond that at this point, but we'll let you know if we find out more. 

Update: According to the arrest report a Miami Beach police cruiser was stopped at a red light on 23rd street and Pine Tree Drive at 11:30 when Donovan's black 2009 Audi coupe came screeching up behind him, an swerved to avoid hitting the police care. 

The officer observed that Donovan had watery and bloodshot eyes, and smelt a strong stench of alcohol. 

Donovan fessed up to having three drinks at the Fontainebleau (of course). He then failed his roadside drunk test. 

While being taken to the police station he said, "I really think I'm only border line and not to dunk," and "The only mistake I made tonight was drinking Benadryl with three bottles of wine." 

Oh Benadryl, that's the problem.  It's one helluva over-the-counter drug.
