MANHATTAN -- Reality TV star and celebrity chef Buddy 'Cake Boss' Valastros was arrested for suspicion of drunken driving early Thursday, police said. Our sister station PIX11 reports Valastros was stopped after DWI enforcement noticed a yellow 2014 Corvette heading north on 10th Avenue, swerving in and out of traffic lanes.
Police say the Corvette was pulled over and officers immediately noticed a strong alcohol odor from inside the car, along with a flushed face and watery, bloodshot eyes on the driver, Valastros, 37, a Hoboken resident whose birth name is Bartolo. Valastros was reportedly unsteady on his feet and failed a field sobriety test.
Valastros faces charges of driving while intoxicated and driving while ability impaired, according to police.
