This just in…
Apparently, you can fist-pump too much: Us Weekly reports that Jersey Shore star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi was arrested Friday for disorderly conduct. While partying on the New Jersey Shore in Seaside Heights, N.J., the 22-year-old was arrested Friday afternoon and released later the same day.
“On Friday at approximately 3:23 p.m., Nicole Polizzi was acting in a disorderly matter while on the beach,” Chief of Police Thomas J. Boyd told Us Weekly in a statement. “Miss Polizzi was escorted from the beach by patrolmen and placed under arrest for disorderly conduct . . . near the boardwalk. She was transported to police headquarters and later released on a summons.”
This means Snooki will have to go to court, but she didn’t have to pay bail and it’s likely she’ll only have to pay a fine.
Asked about the diminutive reality star’s behaviour at the time of her arrest, a spokesperson for the Seaside Heights Police Department said, “The disorderly conduct charge pretty much explains it.” TMZ obtained footage of Snooki falling off a bicycle (when it wasn’t moving) just a few minutes before her arrest.
Jersey Shore co-star Jenni “JWoww” Farley fetched Snooki at the New Jersey jail Friday afternoon.
“Going to bail @sn00ki out of jail,” Farley wrote on Twitter. “The things I do for this girl, I swear.”
Jersey Shore‘s second season is already a huge hit for MTV: The Season 2 premiere was seen by more than 5.3 million U.S. viewers, a 300 per cent increase from the Season 1 premiere. Jersey Shore airs Thursdays at 10 p.m. ET on MTV Canada.
Just another day in the life of Snickers!
