Reality set in for Real Housewives of Orange County husband Matt Keough, who was arrested this week Newport Beach, Calif., for drinking at the bar at a local Marriott - thus violating his probation stemming from a prior DUI arrest!

Matt Keough Mug Shot

This Matt Keough mug shot was released yesterday afternoon.

The 52-year-old Matt Keough pleaded guilty to felony DUI charges in 2005 after crashing his SUV into another car and causing a chain reaction which seriously injured a bicyclist. Keough left the scene of the accident and was later found at a nearby store, where he blew almost three times the legal limit.

Even Amy Winehouse would be impressed by that level of wasted.

Matt Keough was given probation - the terms of which were that he was not to consume any alcohol - not a drop. Police arrested him after a Newport Beach officer recognized him - and knew he wasn't supposed to be drinking.

Matt Keough played in the majors from 1977-1986 with the Oakland A's and four other squads. Matt's dad and his uncle played pro baseball as well, and his son, Shane Keough, is currently playing in the minors in the A's organization.

He'll be arraigned on the probation violation today. The Orange County Sheriff's Dept., which confirmed that Keough was arrested in 2005 for DUI, issued a press release saying "the Oakland A's as well as Matt Keough's family are working together to get Matt into a treatment center to obtain the help he needs."
