Bartolo “Buddy” Valastro, star of TLC’s popular reality cooking show “Cake Boss,” was arrested in Manhattan early Thursday for driving while intoxicated, according to police.
Valastro, a resident of New Jersey, was pulled over around 1 a.m. on Thursday, November 13th, for driving under the influence, according to the New York Police Department. Officers allege that he was seen swerving between lanes.
The arresting officer claims that the 37-year-old reality star’s breath smelled of alcohol, and he had a flushed face and watery, bloodshot eyes. He allegedly failed a field sobriety test, then blew over the legal limit on a breathalyzer, which led to his DUI arrest.
Valastro stars on “Cake Boss,” and also appears on the baking competition series “Next Great Baker.”
When you are pulled over for a suspected DUI, you may be asked to submit to a field sobriety test or a Breathalyzer test. These tests should be videotaped by the police officer, and the officer is required to inform you of your right to refuse a Breathalyzer. However, the results of these tests are constantly being scrutinized for accuracy, which is why you should contact a Florida DUI Defense Lawyer at Whittel & Melton as soon as possible after your arrest to help you inspect the evidence. The sooner you contact us for help, the better.
