Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino was arrested for assault yesterday (17.06.14) following an alleged scuffle with his brother Frank and their tanning shop in New Jersey.
Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino has been arrested for assault.
The former 'Jersey Shore' star was detained by police yesterday (17.06.14) after he allegedly started a brawl at his own Boca Tanning Salon in Middletown, New Jersey.
Detective Lieutenant Steve Dollinger told PEOPLE: ''On Tuesday afternoon we responded to a 911 call at Boca in reference to a fight in progress. Upon arrival, our officers arrested Mike Sorrentino for simple assault. He is in the process of posting $500 bail and the matter will be set for a court date.''
The police got a phone call from a member of public reporting a ''fist fight'' between Mike and his brother Frank, but it is believed just the reality TV star was arrested following the alleged scuffle.
Meanwhile, Mike is set to star in his own reality show 'The Sorrentinos', an eight-episode programme commissioned by TVGN, which will follow him and his family as they open their own tanning salon, and support his sobriety following a 2012 stint in rehab.
He said previously: ''The reality of the situation is ... for the first time, fans and the general public, will be able to see and, well, meet Michael Sorrentino. This next chapter of my life is about sobriety and family, and I'm stoked to take people on this journey with us.''
'The Sorrentinos' will air on July 15.
