'CSI: NY' star DUI? Carmine Giovinazzo got a DUI arrest according to an article from today at TMZ. The actor, who plays Detective Danny Messer on 'CSI: NY' was arrested last week in Scottsdale Arizona.
Reports say police officers noticed the 39-year-old actor "swerving all over the road about 2:40 a.m. on Monday January 21. They promptly pulled Giovinazzo over, and walked up to his white Jeep Wrangler, where they found the actor to be "immediately apologetic and told them he had been driving erratic because he was lost and using the GPS," and was not from Arizona.
The article states the "cops say Carmine stank of booze, had bloodshot eyes and was slurring his speech. When asked if he had been drinking, cops say the actor fessed up to having scotch at the W Hotel." This led to the actor being arrested for DUI.
He did not put up a fight either! Unlike some celebrities who have found themselves on the wrong side of the law before, the arresting officer said Carmine "thanked me many times for not treating him like a criminal and showing him respect," and that he "repeatedly apologized to me and told me he didn't want to be an 'a**hole.'"
Police say his blood alcohol level registered at .149 -- nearly twice the legal limit.
Lets hope the 'CSI: NY' star learned a lesson from his DUI arrest.
