Deena Cortese was arrested yesterday in Seaside Heights, New Jersey, where reality show Jersey Shore is filmed. She was charged on a disorderly conduct charge after an officer spotted her looking “a little intoxicated”.
Police Chief Tommy Boyd told nbcnewyork.com that one of his officers took the star to the police station after seeing her walking in the middle of a street, slapping cars that were driving by.
He added: “Nothing major, but we can’t put up with it. We don’t treat the cast differently than anyone else.”
A witness at the scene tweeted about the incident and also claimed she spotted on/off couple Ronnie Ortiz-Magro and Sammi ‘Sweetheart’ Giancola getting into a fight.
She wrote: “Currently watching deena from the jersey shore getting arrested. Deena was dancing wasteddd in the middle if the street and was arrested right in front of my car hahaha (sic).”
Deena was later released on a summons and was seen being escorted from the police station by her parents.
Of course the trust MTV camera crew were there to film the incident, because getting arrested makes good ratings for Jersey Shore right? Ronnie, JWoww and Nicole Snooki Polizzi visited her at the police station and were seen laughing as they emerged. No surprise there – they look at being arrested as a badge of honor.
