"I had to go in there and clean house, in more ways than one," Mike Sorrentino said after his release from jail.
MIDDLETOWN TOWNSHIP, N.J. -
Gym, tan, jail.
"Jersey Shore" star Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino has been arrested after a fight at a tanning salon.
Middletown Township police Det. Lt. Stephen Dollinger says officers responded to the Boca tanning salon at around 2:10 p.m. Tuesday on a report of a fight in progress. Dollinger says he doesn't have details on what sparked the fight or on who else was involved.
Sorrentino was charged with simple assault. He posted $500 bail and was released. A court date on the matter has not been scheduled.
Messages left for Sorrentino's publicist and for a California attorney who has previously represented him weren't immediately returned.
The cast members of the MTV show were known for their love of tanning and the motto "GTL," which stood for "gym, tan, laundry."
