CSI: NY Star Gets DUI: Carmine Giovinazzo Thanks Officers After Arrest

Carmine Giovinazzo

CSI: NY star Carmine Giovinazzo got a DUI this weekend in Scottsdale, Arizona and apparently it was a very pleasant encounter for the police officers.

Giovinazzo repeatedly apologized to the officers and thanked them for treating him with respect.

The Scottsdale officer who made the arrest, said:

“(Giovinazzo) repeatedly apologized to me and told me he didn’t want to be an ‘a**hole.’ (He) thanked me many times for not treating him like a criminal and showing him respect.”

TMZ reports that the CSI: NY star was arrested for a DUI on January 21 at about 2:30 in the morning. Carmine was allegedly “swerving all over the road” before police pulled him over.

Giovinazzo immediately apologized to the officers and told them that he was driving erratically because he had gotten lost. When officers asked the actor if he had been drinking Carmine replied that he had been drinking scotch at the hotel.

And Carmine wasn’t lying. His blood alcohol level reportedly came in at .149, nearly twice the legal limit.

Are you a fan of Carmine Giovinazzo? Are you impressed that he was so polite with the officers? Or does the fact that he was driving while under the influence outweigh any amount of good manners?

    being polite goes a long way. 30 some years ago, a friend of mine was pulled over for dui by a lady officer. not many lady officers in those days. he was polite, respectful and pleasant. she married the nitwit a few years latter.

    Having lost my mother to a drunk driver I don't care if it's the Pope behind the wheel, respect? Since when does a drunk driver get respect? At that moment when he gets behind the wheel he's nothing but a DRUNK DRIVER and that makes him a criminal. RESPECT goes to the officer who was able to get this moron off the road.

    Carmine knew he was in the wrong, and readily admitted it. Many who have been drinking and driving stupidly become aggressive. Still, Carmine could have caused a serious accident, of which I am sure he is aware. I don't expect he will do this again. Kudos to both men for handling the situation with tact.

    He knew he was wrong and admitted it, at least this was not his 3rd or 4th DUI, people make mistake, its human nature, alchohol impairs judgement, not just behind the wheel, some one he was with should have tried to stop him from driving if they knew he was drunk, that's the thing about being drunk, no fear, and when there's no fear there's no common sense.

    WELL TO ME EVEN THOUGH THE FACT THAT HE SAID HE WAS SORRY DOES HAVE IT'S METERT , THE FACT IS THAT HE WAS DRUNK AND DRIVING , NO THAT DOESN'T MEAN I LOSE RESPECT TO THE MAN BUT IT MAKES ME WONDER WHY, IF YOU PLAY THE PART OF A COP DID YOU DO SOMETHING THAT YOU KNOW IS AGINST THE LAW. AND OF COURSE EVERYTHING A STAR DOES IS PLASTERED ALL OVER THE NEWS PAPERS, TV OR THE INTERNET. YOU PEOPLE GET SOME KIND OF JOY OUT OF LETTING EVERYONE IN THE WORLD KNOW WHEN THE STARS DO WRONG, BUT RARELY TELL OF THE GOOD STUFF THEY DO. BUT YOUR NOT AT FAULT IF THEY DO GOOD OR BAD THEY ARE. THERE FOR MR. GIOVINAZZOIS RESPONCABLE FOR HIS ACTIONS AND HE DID THE RIGHT THING AND APOLIGISED TO THE POLICE FOR HIS ACTIONS. IT WON'T BE THE LAST TIME A FAMOUSE PERSON FALLS FROM GRACE BUT I DO HOPE THAT THEY RELISE THAT PEOPLE DO LOOK UP TO THEM. I FOR ONE REALLY LIKE MR. GIOVINAZZO AND THE CARICTURE HE PLAYS. This is for everyone out there " PLEASE DON'T DRINK AND DRIVE IT COULD COST YOU MORE THEN A TICKET".

    he's another drunk driver on the road wirth the potential to kill. Who gives a damn if he was polite?

    He knew he was wrong and was humbled. Let those without sin cast the first stone. That's for all those "holier than thou" people out there. To error is human. To forgive, devine!
