Chris Nunez, a judge on the Spike reality-TV series "Ink Master," was arrested in South Florida, charged with DUI.

TMZ.com, citing the Broward County sheriff's office, Sunday said Nunez was taken to jail on Saturday after allegedly running a stop sign while under the influence. He was released later on bond, the site said, adding Nunez had not responded to a TMZ request for comment.

Nunez, along with fellow tattoo artist Oliver Peck and singer-guitarist Dave Navarro of Jane's Addiction, has been a judge on the Spike reality competition "Ink Master" since its premiere in January 2012. The show is in its fifth season.

A Cuban-American raised in Miami, Nunez was previously in the cast of the 2005-2008 TLC reality show "Miami Ink," which followed the customers and tattoo artists in the Miami Beach tattoo parlor 305 Ink. After its closing, he and tattoo artist Ami James opened a new Miami Beach shop, Love Hate Tattoos.

In March, "Ink Master" production assistant Nicoletta Robinson filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against Nunez, Peck and Spike TV, TMZ reported. Robinson, who had been terminated the previous November, claimed the two men made obscene suggestions and initiated inappropriate physical contact.
