Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, star of MTV’s "Jersey Shore," was arrested Friday, July 30. 2010, USA Today reports.
According to the article, Police Chief Thomas Boyd of Seaside Heights, New Jersey–where the show is based–confirmed that Snooki "was arrested on the beach around 3:25 p.m. Friday and charged with disorderly conduct."
After being taken to the police station she was processed and released with a summons, the story says.
The article said she was arrested after some other beachgoers complained that Snooki was bothering them. Oddly, it’s usually celebrities who sometimes claim they are bothered by the general public, not the other way around.
The article said MTV declined comment and that the show’s executive producers did not return voicemail messages.
Snooki’s arrest comes just as the second season of "Jersey Shore" has begun with excellent ratings.
