The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) New York City prosecutors have charged "Cake Boss" Buddy Valastro with three misdemeanor counts of drunken-driving.

A criminal complaint says Bartolo Valastro, of Montville, New Jersey, was pulled over in Manhattan's Hell's Kitchen neighborhood at 12:30 a.m. Thursday.

He didn't enter a plea and was released. His lawyer declined to comment. His next court date is Jan. 6.

The complaint says the 37-year-old reality show star smelled of alcohol, had bloodshot eyes and was unsteady. It says he had a blood alcohol content of 0.09 percent. New York's legal limit is 0.08 percent.

Police say officers observed Valastro's yellow 2014 Corvette swerving through traffic.

Valastro operates several bakeries and his show "Cake Boss" airs on TLC. Messages left with TLC and his Hoboken, New Jersey, location weren't immediately returned.
