According to PopEater, Giuseppe 'Joe' Giudice was arrested at the family's home in New Jersey on Friday evening, on charges of fraudulently obtaining a driver's licence.
It is alleged that Giudice acquired the licence by falsely presenting his brother's identification as his own, due to his own licence being currently suspended.
The arrest is the latest in a long line of legal issues for Giudice, after he served eight days in prison last September for being caught driving on a suspended licence. He also received a driving ban in early 2010 for crashing his car while intoxicated.
It is claimed that Giudice could face a sentence of over ten years' imprisonment if convicted.
Teresa Giudice has yet to comment on her husband's legal troubles, and has continued to make public appearances in support of her new cookbook Fabulicious.
The Real Housewives Of New Jersey has been renewed for a third season, to air later this year.
