Snooki arrested after Jersey Shore returns with high ratings

Jersey Shore star Nicole Polizzi, aka Snooki, was arrested and taken away by police in Seaside Heights, New Jersey, where the third season is currently being filmed. TMZ has photos and says she was released around 6:30 p.m. ET. She fell off a bike right before she was arrested.

Snooki “was being very disorderly on the beach, bothering other patrons there. When our police went to deal with the situation — not Mike ‘The Situation’ — they found they needed to arrest her,” John Camera, a Seaside Heights Borough Administrator, told the New Jersey Star-Ledger.

Her arrest comes the day after the season two debut drew a record 5.3 million viewers to MTV, which is “280% over the Season One debut (1.4 million viewers), and +96% versus the Season One average,” and “MTV’s best season premiere rating in more than seven years (since the Season Two launch of ‘The Osbournes’ on 11/26/2002),” according to the network, as TV By the Numbers reports.
