Bryan Voltaggio, the celebrity chef who owns three restaurants in the Chevy Chase Pavilion in Friendship Heights, pleaded guilty to driving under the influence of alcohol in Baltimore District Court on Friday.
He was sentenced to one year of probation and ordered to tour a hospital trauma unit and attend a victim-panel with Mothers Against Drunk Driving, according to the Associated Press.
Voltaggio, 38, who is listed at a Frederick address in court records, was arrested on South Howard Street in Baltimore around 12:20 a.m. on June 6 and later charged him with driving under the influence of alcohol.
The chef became famous after placing second to his brother Michael on Bravo’s “Top Chef” television show in 2009. He owns Lunchbox, Range and Aggio, which are all located inside Chevy Chase Pavilion, as well as Volt and Family in Frederick and a second Aggio in Baltimore.
