Yikes. To quote the theme song from Friends, this has not been Joe Giudice’s week. Or month. Or, come to think about it, even his year. The Real Housewives of New Jersey star, husband of fan favorite Teresa Giudice, was stopped by New Jersey police on Tuesday, November 26, and slapped with tickets for two infractions.
RadarOnline.com reports the news, which comes just one day after the site published photos of Joe having drinks with a mystery woman 30 miles away from his home. Is Joe cheating on Teresa? Radar certainly seems to think so.
So what’s this newest drama all about. “Giudice was operating a Maserati on Hook Mountain Road and was observed with no inspection sticker,” Montville Police Capt. Rudy Appelmann tells community website the Montville Patch. One of Joe’s infractions was for failure to inspect, the other for having an expired insurance card.
“Police officers look for observable motor vehicle violations and overdue inspection stickers and vehicles requiring up-to-date inspection are directed to the inspection unit. They then are issued summonses from Montville for the observed violations,” Appelmann explained.
Of course, Joe’s most noteworthy legal trouble at the moment involves his upcoming February 24 court date, where he and Teresa are facing 41 counts of federal fraud and, if convicted, could each spend up to 50 years in prison.
To hearken back to that familiar theme song, we hope he’s surrounded by plenty of friends. We’re pretty sure Joe could use some right now.
