I’m Sure It Was Just A Cover ID…

From AP:
The arrest report says an officer pulled Donovan over on July 12 after noticing that he swerved his car to avoid hitting the police car from behind. When the officer approached Donovan, he reported that the actor’s eyes appeared bloodshot and watery.

The actor of the popular USA Network series was arrested after failing a field sobriety test. The arrest report says Donovan refused to take a breathalyzer test.

The 41-year-old actor, who worked alongside actress Angelina Jolie in the 2008 film, “Changeling,” was released several hours later on $1,000 bail.

I can only imagine the clever voice-over that was occuring as Mr. Donovan swerved around a stopped (though maybe not necessarily parked police cruiser).

“When you’re a spy and you’re extremely intoxicated behind the wheel of a car leased to a production company, it’s important not to rear-end a police car. If necessary, swerve to avoid this. If the police officer pulls you over for NOT rear-ending him, imagine what he would have done if you had. On second thought, never swerve, rear end the police car and frame a Russian pimp for the DUI. Hindsight is 20/20. Fuck you, give me a yogurt.”

There’s no way they can make this stick. So, not hitting a cop car is a crime now? Seriously. You’re drunk if you swerve to avoid the car? You’re even drunker if you hit the car. You can’t win. I didn’t know NOT plowing into a police car was probable cause these days. He could have been shuffling his iPod or worse, ‘sexting’.

I’m not saying that the dude doesn’t drink, that he wasn’t drinking, or that he probably doesn’t drink and drive. I know within the last year I’ve heard rumors, and seen one picture of him passed out drunk on a chaise lounge with topless chicks around. No guy does that unless they’re serious about tying one on. I’m just saying cut the guy a break, at least until the ratings slip. If anyone’s hitting the wall around here its Gabrielle Anwar.

UPDATE:

The Daily News was quick to add:
“The actor could face six months in jail if convicted of the one count of DUI.”

Considering that Donte Stallworth KILLED a guy and ORPHANED that guy’s child WHILE DRIVING DRUNK and received 30 Days in Jail as a sentence, I don’t think Donovan is really going to Notice The Burn on this charge.
