Alleged Victim of Jersey Shore Bar Brawl Was Previously Charged With Assault
Last Friday, June 8, the Jersey Shore cast was caught up in a bar brawl. Now, thanks to The Examiner, we have some more info about one of the alleged victims of the fight.
Some background: The fight took place at a Seaside bar called Bamboo. Ronnie and JWOWW's boyfriend Roger are the only familiar faces the victims claim were directly involved, though JWOWW was seen with a twisted ankle the next day (it's unclear if and how that's related). The incident may lead to legal action against Ronnie for allegedly starting the fight, though the club's owner says bar patrons provoked the cast by throwing ice, spitting on them, and even shoving them.
Now The Examiner has discovered that Devon Chichele, one of the men claiming Ronnie and Roger attacked him, has a criminal background. A year ago, Devon was "convicted of aggravated assault and bodily injury"; he was "found guilty on June 17, 2011 and was sentenced to 5 years probation." What’s more, if Devon did start the fight with the boys, this might be in violation of his probation
Of course, Devon's past conviction doesn't mean Ronnie and Roger couldn't have started this fight. Justin Viterito, the other victim, has hired a lawyer who is seeking security and MTV footage to clarify what happened. If nothing else, we imagine we'll find out more once Season 6 airs, since this fight sounds way too good to keep off of TV.
