Chef Brian Voltaggio — who operates Volt, Range, Lunch Box, and other restaurants in Baltimore and Washington, D.C. — pleaded guilty on Friday to driving under the influence of alcohol. He was arrested this past June. News of the arrest broke last month.
Voltaggio, who appeared next to his brother Michael on Top Chef season 6, recently opened Aggio in Baltimore, which is where he was arrested for the DUI. The Washington Post reviewed court records that show that Voltaggio was sentenced to probation prior to judgement, allowing him to avoid having the DUI permanently on his record. Eater DC has reached out to the chef and his publicist.
