MTV reality star Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi was arrested in New Jersey on Friday afternoon on suspicion of disorderly conduct.

Polizzi, who shot to fame last year on TV show Jersey Shore, was taken into custody after allegedly drinking alcohol in public while filming the hit series’ third season in Seaside Heights.

Local official John Camera says, “She was being very disorderly on the beach, bothering other patrons there.”

The 22 year old was released hours later, although further details were unavailable as WENN went to press.
