Donovan was driving a 2009 black two-door Audi at the time of the crash and the arresting officer said the actor had “blood-shot watery eyes.”

“I asked the defendant if he was alright to which he answered – ‘Sorry I didn’t see the red light or your stop car,’’’ the officer added. “I then smelled a strong odor of alcoholic beverage coming from the defendant’s breath and observed that the defendant had a flushed face.”


The officer then asked Donovan to walk in a straight-line on a level area but he could not “perform to standards.”

Donovan was then arrested and transported to Miami Beach Police Dept before being booked and released.
