Deena Cortese was arrested on Sunday afternoon for public intoxication.
The “Jersey Shore” star was handcuffed in New Egypt by a Seaside Heights police officer after she danced in the street and slapped cars that drove by her.
“It’s “nothing major, but we can’t put up with it,” said Police Chief Tommy Boyd. “We don’t treat the cast differently than anyone else.”
“Deena walked out of a bar by herself and started to dance in traffic. An unidentified driver was attempting to drive around her and she wouldn’t let him pass,” he stated. “An officer arrested her and she was charged with disorderly conduct. She was processed and released.”
Cortese’s arrest is very similar to her fellow “meatball” co-star’s arrest. Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi’s was arrested in July 2010 for public drunkenness and disorderly conduct on the beach.
Deena’s arrest isn’t the only drama for the reality show stars. There was a major brawl involving Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, Paul “Pauly D” Delvecchio, Jenni “JWoww” Farley, and Ronnie Ortiz-Magro on Friday night at the Bamboo Bar, where the reality stars fought other people from the club.
JWoww ended up on crutches after spraining her ankle during the tussle.
