Maybe the “Cake Boss” should stick to drinking non-alcoholic eggnog.
The 37-year-old star of the TLC reality TV show faces charges of driving while intoxicated and driving with impaired ability after cops saw him driving erratically along the streets of New York City in his 2014 Corvette Stingray around 1 a.m. Thursday.
After pulling Bartolo “Buddy” Valastro over for swerving through the lanes between 20th and 32nd streets in Manhattan, police said they could smell alcohol on his breath and saw that he had a flushed face and watery, bloodshot eyes.
New York Police Det. Martin Speechley also said that Valastro was unsteady on his feet after climbing out of his Stingray and failed a field sobriety test.
To paraphrase a Chevy slogan, baking runs deep in Valastro’s family. He’s a fourth-generation baker and runs Carlo’s Bake Shop in Hoboken, N.J. Besides his starring role in “Cake Boss,” he’s also in the competition series “Next Great Baker.”
After these charges, he might need to be looking for a new show called “Next Great Attorney” now, or maybe someone could bake him a cake with a file in it.
During the summer, Valastro and his family were among those rescued by fire and police harbor units after his 32-foot Boston Whaler got lost in heavy fog in Ambrose Channel, putting it at risk of hitting large commercial ships in the busy shipping channel in New York Harbor.
