‘Snooki gets arrested’ news capped quite a busy week. Snooki got arrested just after the Jersey Shore Season 2 premiere, although her arrest won’t be a plot for the show until Season 3. Although the Jersey Shore gang is invading Miami on television, that vacation was taped months ago. The crew is already back home in New Jersey, although their biggest star made herself at home too well in Seaside Heights. In a week where she helped ring the Wall Street bell and promoted the return of her show, Snooki getting arrested was a typically crazy end to it all.
According to Radar Online and TMZ, Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi was taken in by Seaside Heights authorities yesterday for disorderly conduct. Naturally, she was on a beach at the time, and J-WOWW was nearby. In addition, J-WOWW was able to bail her out, although with Vinny and Deena.
Snooki getting arrested may not have surprised too many people, except that it took this long for a Jersey Shore kid to hit the slammer. This came a day after Jersey Shore Season 2 premiered on MTV, as the gang began their adventures in Miami. But they are currently back home, with Season 3 taping right now.
Having Snooki get arrested will certainly be good material for Season 3, although video is already out from it. TMZ has a clip in which she tries in vain to get on a bicycle, but is too drunk and falls on her face. She was reportedly taken in by police soon afterward.
Once Snooki got arrested, the Internet tabloids and Jersey Shore followers were all over it. In addition, ex-boyfriend Emilo Masella had some theories of his own, as he told Radar Online that she was trying to upstage the new girl in the house. He even said that it was her ‘dream’ to go on another reality show – VH1’s Celebrity Rehab – and this would help her do that.
If Snooki’s ordeal was meant to keep her as the Jersey Shore headliner, as Masella predicts, it worked. But she is already the biggest name from the show, even if President Obama wasn’t sure who she was on The View. However, the bar has been raised, or lowered, for the Situation, J-WOWW and Angelina to go further.
It will still be another season before MTV’s footage of Snooki getting arrested premieres. Until then, fans have to settle for her making a spectacle in Miami, every Thursday at 10 pm est on MTV.
