Buddy Valastro, the NJ baker known to reality TV fans as Cake Boss, pleaded guilty to DWI during his arraignment in New York City today.

Valastro was arrested on November 13, after cops spotted his low-key yellow Corvette weaving on 10th Avenue near the Hudson Yards. He reportedly told cops, "Can you just put me in a cab? You don't have to arrest me. I'm not a bad guy. Is there anything we can do?"

Today, Valastro took a plea deal. According to the NY Times, he "will not be allowed to drive for three months... Judge Melissa A. Crane fined Mr. Valastro $300, suspended his license for three months in New York State and ordered him to take a course on drunken driving. New Jersey, where Mr. Valastro lives, will suspend his driving privileges sometime in the next few days, his lawyer and publicist said."

Valastro Tweeted an apology:

It's classy of Valastro to admit he was wrong, but he shouldn't stop here: He should also do public service announcements during his show to remind people of the dangers of drunk driving. Here are some stats from MADD:

Every day in America, another 28 people die as a result of drunk driving crashes.

Every two minutes, a person is injured in a drunk driving crash.

Drunk driving costs the United States $199 billion a year.

Drunk driving costs each adult in the United States almost $800 per year.

Cake Boss's blood alcohol level was measured at .108, well above the .08 legal limit. What's gross is that apparently Valastro "had a fair chance of winning an acquittal" according to his lawyer. However, Valastro "chose not to because it would send the wrong message to his family and fans." The lawyer told the Times, "That’s not him. The hardest thing for him was explaining this to his kids. I think morally he had to take that plea."
