First Buddy Valastro and his family had to be rescued when their boat got lost in the fog in New York Harbor. Now the Cake Boss was arrested on drunken driving charges early this morning after police spotted him “weaving his sports car through traffic in New York City’s upcoming Hudson Yards neighborhood.”

The chef behind Buddy V’s Ristorante and Carlo’s Bake Shop at the Venetian and Palazzo was pulled over around 1 a.m. this morning in New York.

“He was observed by officers swerving through lanes of traffic,” New York City police officer Adam Navarro tells Reuters.

The charges include driving while intoxicated and driving while ability impaired, police said.
