"Ink Master" Judge Arrested for DUI

Chris Nunez May Be Able to Plead for "Wet Reckless"

One of the judges of reality television show "Ink Masters" has been arrested for DUI in Florida. Chris Nunez was stopped by police after running a stop sign and was taken into custody shortly afterwards. He spent two hours in jail before being released on bond. Nunez has been a judge on the reality series since it began in January 2012. He was a tattoo artist on the former reality show "Miami Ink" and owns a tattoo shop in the Miami area.

Even a first time DUI offense in Florida carries serious penalties. If convicted, Nunez will be facing 6 to 9 months of jail time, up to $2,000 in fines, a license suspension of 6 months to 1 year, and the installation of an ignition interlock device. However, Florida is a state that allows a DUI to be considered a "wet reckless" if it is a first offense and a person's BAC was borderline.

A "wet reckless" charge means that a person practiced reckless driving where alcohol was involved but their BAC still under the legal limit of .08 or borderline illegal. This plea bargain may be offered to those that have no prior record and were not involved in a car crash as a result of their driving.

If you think your DUI conviction may be considered a "wet reckless" in the eyes of the law, contact an experienced DUI defense attorney to discuss your case.
