Joe Giudice’s mugshot has just been released, Daily Mail reports. The husband of Real Housewives of New Jersey star, Teresa Giudice, was arrested last Friday, March 25, on charges of fraudently obtaining a New Jersey driver’s license. His license was suspended last year, and he spent 10 days in jail on charges of driving on a suspended license. Now, Joe is accused of going to the DMV and getting a driver’s license under his brother’s name. If convicted, he faces up to 18 months in prison, for forgery, and up to 10 years in prison, for wrongfully using identifying information of another person. Joe was released from prison on $50,000 bail.
This hasn’t been an easy couple of years for the Giudices. Joe was recently detained at a Dominican Republic airport, after a fight broke out in a DR hotel bar. Joe Giudice, as well as other cast mates, got in a physical fight, when Teresa was allegedly punched in the face after a bar patron was angered by her accidentally spraying champagne on his wife.
Teresa’s latest Facebook status update was on Thursday, at 3:19 p.m. She wrote, “Come see me at the XRSE store in Palisades Mall in West Nyack NY. on Saturday, April 2nd from 12PM – 3PM! xx.”
