Joe Giudice, hubby to The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice, is potentially facing some real jail time for his latest legal misstep — fraudulently obtaining a new driver’s license while his own was suspended by using his brother’s personal information — but it’s won’t the first time Joe’s seen the inside of a jail cell.
In fact, he’s got a whole slew of known arrests to his name. Here’s a timeline:
January 14, 2010 – After crashing into a pole at nearly 2 a.m., Joe was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, reckless driving, careless driving and failure to maintain a traffic lane in Montville Township, NJ and taken to the hospital. After his release from the medical facility, he was then turned over to the Clifton Police Department, which was discovered to hold outstanding warrants for his arrest for city ordinance violations.
September 2010 – Joe was sentenced to ten days in jail for driving with a suspended license.
February 23, 2011 – Joe and Caroline Manzo’s sons, Albie and Christopher, along with others, were detained in the Dominican Republic following a bar brawl. No charges were ultimately filed, but it did delay Joe, Teresa, and the Manzo boys’ return to New Jersey.
March 25, 2011 – Joe was arrested for fraudulently obtaining a state driver’s license and now faces charges including wrongful identity use and impersonation. He’s currently endeavoring to negotiate a plea but is said to face up to ten years in prison for the charges. Ouch!
