Cake Boss star/bakery owner Buddy Valastro was arrested for suspicion of driving while intoxicated around 1 a.m. this morning in New York City. According to WABC, Valastro — who was driving his eye-searingly bright yellow 2014 Corvette down 10th Avenue at the time — failed a sobriety test and is scheduled to be arraigned on Thursday.

Besides owning Hoboken, New Jersey bakery Carlo's Bake Shop and starring in the long-running TLC show Cake Boss, Valastro also has an Italian restaurant in Las Vegas hotel The Venetian called Buddy V's. He now joins the ranks of drunk-driving food world celebrities like chef Cat Cora, who was arrested in 2012, and chef Todd English, who made headlines back in September with a bleary-eyed mugshot after being arrested in Long Island.
