"CSI: NY" star Carmine Giovinazzo -- who plays Det. Danny Messer on the show -- has pled guilty in his Arizona DUI case -- but chances are he won't spend a single day behind bars ... TMZ has learned. 

We broke the story ... Carmine was arrested in Scottsdale on Jan. 21 at 2:40 AM after cops say he was drunkenly swerving all over the road in a Jeep Wrangler.

Now, we've learned ... the 39-year-old actor struck a deal with prosecutors in which he agreed to enter a guilty plea ... and in exchange he was ordered to complete an alcohol training program by May 3.

There is one catch -- if Carmine fails to complete the program by the deadline, he'll have to spend 10 days in jail ... but c'mon, who would possibly screw up that deal???

Stay tuned ...

Can a normal drunk driver get this royal treatment? No. They'd be in the slammer quicker than a tequila shot.

He looks pretty ripped in his mugshot. Aside from death waiting to happen, the one thing that scares me about drunk drivers is they usually do it all the time because they think they can.

Hehe, Dude looks like he's got a bad case of the drunkies. At least he owned it, and took his punishment instead of whining about it.

It never ceases to amaze me about the TMZ audience. Whenever ANY one who is black gets a story like like this, there are HUNDREDS of comments, racist name calling/jokes, but this guy gets less than 20 comments with "At least he took responsibility for his actions." SMH
