Mary Kay Letourneau and Vili Fualaau are back in the news after the notorious student-turned-husband was charged with driving under the influence back in February.

An officer from the King County Sheriff's Department told DailyMail.com that police cited Fualaau after he crashed his 2002 Mercury Mountainer into three cars a little before midnight on February 2 in Burien, Washington.

In a report filed by one of the officers on the scene, it is noted that Fualaau, 34, was 'slurring' his words, and admitted to being at a bar earlier that night.

TMZ was the first to report the news of Fualaau's arrest.

Teachable moment: He (Fualaau on left) was then administered a field sobriety test and had failed his first attempt when his wife Mary Kay Letourneau (right last year) arrived on the scene

Bad influence: She demanded that he halt the test, refuse a Breathylyzer and stop cooperating with police, at which point he invoked his right to remain silent

He also smelled of 'intoxicants' and his eyes were 'watery' and 'bloodshot,' leading police to believe he might be inebriated and therefore asking the young man to complete a field sobriety test.

The report reveals that he failed the first part, but did not complete the test because at that moment his wife arrived on the scene and demanded Fualau stop cooperating with authorities.

Fualaau then invoked his right to remain silent after Letourneau, 56, said their attorney was on the way and was taken to the station where he was booked and released on a charge of DUI.

He was not however required to pose for a mugshot, which is how he was likely able keep the incident under wraps. 

Now, he is set to head to court this week and could, like his wife, end up spending time behind bars. 

This comes a little less than a year after Fualaau filed for divorce, though he later withdrew those papers.

Fualaau was just a sixth-grade student when he began having an affair with Letourneau back in 1996, despite the fact that his then-34-year-old teacher was married and had four young children.

The couple first met when Fualaau was in Letourneau's second grade class in Seattle, but did not begin to have a sexual relationship until four years later, when he was 12.

Letourneau ultimately got a divorce from her first husband and served seven years in prison to be with Fualaau, who she married shortly after her release.

She gave birth to the couple's first child while out on bail in 1997, and their second while in prison.

These days, Fualaau works at a home and garden center while Letourneau is employed as a legal assistant, unable to teach due to her status as a sex offender.

Fualaau has also been working to get his DJ career up and running, spinning at a local bar on weeknights under the name DJ Headline.

He and his estranged wife have also hosted Hot for Teacher nights at a local bar.

The couple gave a rare interview on the eve of their tenth anniversary in 2015, sitting down with Barbara Walters for the 20/20 special American Scandal.

In that interview, Letourneau said that the relationship between the two did not start until after the school year was over, and that it quickly became physical..

'The incident was a late night that it didn't stop with a kiss. And I thought that it would and it didn't,' said Letourneau.

'I loved him very much, and I kind of thought, 'Why can't it ever just be a kiss?''

By the time Fualaau was 13, Letourneau was pregnant, but she managed to keep everything
