NEW YORK (AP) - “Cake Boss” Buddy Valastro says he’s “very disappointed” in himself for driving after having a drink in New York City last month. He says he didn’t realize he was impaired.

The reality show star, whose formal name is Bartolo Valastro, pleaded guilty Monday to driving while ability impaired. It’s a violation, not a crime.

His driver’s license will be suspended for three months.

He said Monday he had only one drink before being pulled over, but he now realizes even one is too many to drive.

The 37-year-old Montville, New Jersey, resident was stopped after police said they saw his yellow 2014 Corvette swerving through traffic in Manhattan. A court complaint said his blood-alcohol level was slightly above the legal limit.

Valastro operates several bakeries. “Cake Boss” airs on TLC.
