The Big Ragoo Busted for DUI

7/7/2009 2:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Carmine The Big Ragoo RagusaThe guy who played Carmine "The Big Ragoo" Ragusa on "Laverne and Shirley" was arrested last Friday in Las Vegas after he allegedly got into a drunken car crash.

Law enforcement sources tell us they received a call at around 12:30 PM about a collision with a "suspected drunk driver." When officers arrived, they found Eddie Mekka and administered field sobriety tests.

After the tests, Mekka was placed under arrest for suspicion of driving under the influence -- a misdemeanor. As for the accident, we don't know any details, but we do know there were no injuries reported at the scene.

To TMZ: It took me 1 minute to find out that it was The Big Ragu, Not Ragoo. Glad you're one of the people who are employed to make mistakes on a national level. Oh wait, www is a WORLD WIDE level. Good job, cash that check.
