Ricardo Chavira -- who plays Eva Longoria's husband on "Desperate Housewives" -- was arrested for DUI early this morning in Los Angeles ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.


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

We're told Chavira was given field sobriety tests at the scene -- but they didn't go so well -- so cops arrested him on suspicion of DUI. Sources say Chavira refused to take a blood or breath test.

Chavira was taken to a nearby jail -- where he was booked. He's currently being held on $25,000 bail.
