Al Michaels
has been charged with 2 counts of misdemeanor DUI in connection with his arrest in Santa Monica, CA last month ... TMZ has learned.

If convicted, Michaels faces up 6 months in jail and a $1,000 fine -- but since he doesn't have any priors on his record, it's unlikely he'll spend a single day behind bars.

We broke the story ... Michaels was arrested on April 19th after making an illegal U-turn in front of a DUI checkpoint.

Instead of reading : " but since he doesn't have any priors on his record, it's unlikely he'll spend a single day behind bars. " ---- it should have read : But since it's California it doesn't matter if the guy has a rap sheet a mile long, he's a celebrity and it's unlikely he'll spend a single day behind bars."

Not the smartest idea to bust a U turn at a DUI checkpoint.... Just stating the obvious

He made a dumb decision. If in the same situation, I might have done the same thing. Good luck Mr. Michaels.

Who is Al Michaels? I don't recognize his face or the name......slow day at TMZ?

Also, it's helpful in your little blurbs to give some mention to who the subject is and/or what they do or what show/band they are with etc.
