The heat is no longer on Jeffrey Donovan.
The plea helps the 42-year-old Donovan avoid jail time and an embarassing trial for the USA Network's golden boy.
In July 2009, Donovan was having a grand time at the Fontainebleau when he nearly crashed his Audi coupe into a police cruiser that was stopped at a traffic light.
Not really the smartest move for a handsome former secret agent, but Donovan compounded the blunder by opening his mouth.
“The only mistake I made tonight was drinking Benadryl with 3 glasses of wine,” he told police as he was being led away on DUI charges.
Donovan also told the cop he was "only borderline" drunk. A judge sentenced Donovan to six months probation and a $1,000 fine.
