Joe LaDont, Trapper Joe mug shot
"Swamp People" star Trapper Joe has been arrested for domestic violence in Florida, TMZ has learned.

Joe -- full name Joe LaFont -- was arrested early this morning in Orange County for domestic battery.

Sources close to LaFont tell TMZ, LaFont and his girlfriend had gotten into some kind of argument. The precise details surrounding the arrest are still unclear.

You'll recall ... Joe and his stepson Tommy Chauvin were nearly killed in a nasty 5-car pile-up near the Arkansas-Louisiana state line back in April. The pics were crazy.

Joe is currently being held on $1,500 bond.
