'Top Chef' Finalist in Long Island Beach Bust

"Top Chef" finalist Sam Talbot got a big, fat helping of justice in New York earlier this month -- when  dude drove his truck onto some sand dunes ... and wound up in police custody.

According to a police report, obtained by TMZ, cops responded to a complaint that Talbot was driving his Chevy truck all over a Long Island beach -- but when they got up in Sam's grill ... they realized he was a WANTED MAN!

According to the report, Talbot's license had been suspended for failing to pay a fine -- and for failing to show up in court. Cops immediately placed the chef under arrest and took him down to the station.

Talbot was eventually released after paying the $100 bail. He's due back in court next week.

I thought he was fine, also, until they showed him, as Kelly's
friend, on Housewives of NY. Apparently, the man has no taste, at all, in addition to no sense;).

I ALWAYS thought He was the dude who knocked up Padma...anyone think the same thing? They sure made a lot of googly eyes at each other during the show AND she bawled when he was told to "Pack his knives"...Does ANYONE know who the father of that kid is?
