Al Michaels will NOT go to jail in his DUI case ... DO YOU BELIEVE IN MIRACLES?!?!?

KIDDING!!!!  He was never in any real danger of going to the slammer ('cause it was his first DUI) ... but he did strike a plea deal and will be on probation for the next 24 months.

As we reported, Michaels was popped on April 19th after making an illegal U-turn in front of a DUI checkpoint in L.A. He was subsequently charged with two counts of DUI.

Al just struck a deal with prosecutors -- agreeing to plead no contest to reckless driving -- (a lesser charge) ... he was sentenced to 80 hours of community service and placed on probation.

Now GO OUT THERE AND CALL SOME PRESEASON FOOTBALL GAMES!!!!!!
