"Real Housewives of New Jersey" husband Joe Giudice has driven into some more legal trouble.

The already-indicted reality show hubby - with a long history of driver's license suspensions - was cited by police last week in his hometown of Montville, N.J., for careless driving in a school zone, according to a copy of the citation obtained by ABC News.

Montville Township Administrator Victor Canning said Giudice, on Nov. 5, swerved into oncoming traffic lanes as a police car approached.

"The officer assumed he was texting," Canning said of the reality-TV personality. "He didn't actually see him texting but he assumed that's what he was doing."

Giudice, 43, is facing state charges after allegedly obtaining a New Jersey driver's license by impersonating his brother. At the time, Giudice's license was suspended because of a driving-under-the-influence episode.

Giudice and his wife, "Real Housewives of New Jersey" star Teresa Giudice, 41, are also facing a series of federal charges for alleged fraud.

Miles Feinstein, Giudice's lawyer, did not immediately respond to a message from ABC News.

According to New Jersey motor vehicle regulations, Giudice faces a fine of up to $200 and/or up to 15 days in jail for the latest citation. State records show his license has been suspended 47 times since he first became a New Jersey driver in 1987.
