Trouble for one of the members of E!'s Mrs. Eastwood & Company.

Overtone singer Valentino "Tino" Ponsonby is in some hot water after driving his car into the ocean Thursday morning.

Ponsonby, whose band is managed by Dina Eastwood and is featured on her eponymous reality show, was reportedly driving his white Escalade along Pebble Beach in California when he careened off a 17-mile drive, over the beach and into the water, according to local NBC affiliate KSBW.

Onlookers said the 26-year-old beat-boxer was able to escape from the car and wade to shore through 4-feet-deep water.

The band member was busted on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol and was transported to a local hospital, where he was still recovering Thursday night, California Highway Patrol Officer Robert Lehman told the station.

"This is not the first time this happened in this area," Lehman said. "Those are sharp turns, so there is not a large margin for error."
