Always outrageous, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi allegedly took things too far this time.
The petite reality star, 22, of Jersey Shore was being booked by the Seaside Heights, N.J., police department Friday after she was seen intoxicated in public, a police source confirms. Meanwhile, the cameras on her popular MTV reality show were rolling too.
Polizzi was expected to be charged with disorderly conduct, another source says.
“She didn t hurt anyone or get in a fight,” says the second source. “She just needs to be in a drunk tank for two hours.”
A rep for the show declined to comment.
