Being arrested for DUI is not exactly a first for former MLB player and known lush Matt Keough of The Real Housewives of Orange County quasi-fame.

This latest bust is pretty impressive, however.

The Orange County Sheriff's Department reports that it busted Matt Keough on Saturday afternoon when he rolled a stop sign in Coto de Caza, Calif.

But Keough didn't stop right away, so the Sheriff's say they had to follow him all the back the his place. Law enforcement gave him a blood test.

He tested three times over the legal limit.

Matt Keough was taken into custody and posted $10,000 bail.

He was sentenced to 180 days in jail in January 2008 for ... a DUI arrest that violated the terms of his probation following his 2005 DUI arrest.

That's a poorer track record than his 58-84 mark as a pitcher.

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."
