Ricardo Chavira, the actor who plays Eva Longoria's husband on Desperate Housewives, was arrested for driving under the influence Tuesday morning in Los Angeles, TMZ reports.

The 39-year-old actor was pulled over for a routine traffic stop at around 2:00 a.m., when cops allegedly smelled alcohol on his breath.

Sources tell the site that Chavira was given field sobriety tests on the scene, which he was unable to pass. He was then arrested on suspicion of DUI and refused to take a blood or breathalyzer test.

The actor was taken to a nearby jail where he was booked and as of 11:00 a.m. Tuesday, remained on $25,000 bail.
