7/20/2009 12:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jeffrey Donovan DUIThe star of that show "Burn Notice" may have been a little too lit up when he got behind the wheel last weekend -- dude was arrested for allegedly driving under the influence in Miami Beach.

TMZ has learned Jeffrey Donovan was arrested on suspicion of DUI last Sunday, July 12th. The 41-year-old posed for a cop cam and was released several hours later.

So far, no comment from Donovan's reps.

What a waste. I like the show but who gives him the right to drink and drive? What a bad example for fans of the show. Get help. I think you need it.

I do not understand why anyone would drink and drive. I tell people who try and defend drunk driving, "what if you child was out playing and some drunk driver hit them and killed them" and if they don't have any kids what if it was your niece or nephew. There is absolutely no excuse. I am a student and when I go out and party, and get drunk I always make sure I have enough money for a cab. We all drink, but only idiots drive while drunk. I used to love Burn Notice it was my favorite show, but after hearing about this I can no longer watch it. Because every time I watch it now I just think about how Donovan potentially could have killed someone, and I think he will continue to drink and drive until something catastrophic happens. Thanks Jeffrey Donovan for ruining my favorite show.

Jeffrey Donovan is not a dumb ass. He has an MFA. He just made an error in judgement. Who hasn't? Let that person stand up and cast the first stone. And, when that person stands up and casts their stone, they had better not make any errors in judgement in the future, either.

I thought he was the actor in L.A. Confidential.
