When it comes to getting busted, this soon-to-be reality star likes to keep it all in the family.

E! News has confirmed that Real Housewives of Miami's Marysol Patton—and her mom, Elsa—were both busted separately for DUIs last year, and we got the mug shots to prove it.

Like mother, like daughter...

Terry Chavez, spokeswoman for the Florida State Attorney's Office, tells E! News that the younger Patton, a Miami-based publicist, was pulled over in January 2010 on suspicion of drunken driving.

She subsequently struck a deal with prosecutors that saw her plead no contest to a lesser charge of reckless driving to evade jail time. In exchange, she was fined $1,000 plus $581 in court costs. Not to mention that priceless mug shot.

As for her mama, Elsa Patton was busted for DUI last October. While details of the 76-year-old's arrest are scarce, the case ended up being dismissed on Dec. 6 when her arresting officer failed to show up to court to testify.

A rep for Bravo was unavailable for comment.
