So, just how many arrests have there been in six seasons of the show?
1. Ronnie, Season 1, Episode 8: “One Shot” Ron was actually the first Jersey Shore start to get arrested during the show. After getting involved in the first of many bar brawls, Ronnie was arrested in the middle of the street. After knocking a guy out, he was taken away by the cops and arrested for aggravated assault.
2. Snooki, Season 3, Episode 3: “Where’s the Beach?” In one of the funniest (and sure, one of the more serious) moments in Jersey Shore history, Snooki got day-drunk and just wanted someone to tell her where the beach was. She wandered outside in Seaside, wearing a very cute outfit and huge sunglasses, and stumbled along the boardwalk looking for that darn ocean. It was so hard to find! JWOWW and Deena Nicole tried to help her, but quickly realized that she would probably drown. Snooks’ loud protestations and general wackiness caught the attention of cops, who probably would have just escorted her off the beach without incident, but the fiery meatball had to go ahead and curse out the cops, who promptly put her in handcuffs for disorderly conduct. Watch the whole thing here.
3. The Unit, Season 5, Episode 9: “The Truth Will Set You Free” At the time, The Situation was looking for friends to back up his story that he and Snooki hooked up while she was still with Jionni. So who better to act as a reliable witness than The Unit? Unfortunately, Unit got so wastey-pants on the night of the planned confrontation, that The Situation had to help walk him home. Some cops saw the sleazy, shirtless Unit stumbling down the streets of Seaside, and decided to arrest him. While it wasn’t shown on the show, The Unit was arrested for drug possession. RadarOnline later confirmed that the drug he was suspected of possessing was Special K.
4. Deena Nicole, Season 6 Poor Deena Nicole. All she wanted to do was dance in the streets. But after drinking too much and missing her meatball (Snooki), Deena was arrested for doing exactly that: dancing in the streets. She was arrested for “dancing in the street” and disorderly conduct, though that charge was later dropped. She later pled guilty to “a pedestrian violation of motor vehicle law for not walking on the sidewalk.”
Worth noting: Ronnie, Season 6 On June 8, Ronnie and Roger Mathews were allegedly involved in a huge bar brawl at Bamboo Bar. Some punches were thrown, though it’s unclear who started the fight. In this sneak peek, we see that almost all of the cast members were involved; Vinny, Pauly D, The Situation, and Sammi are all seen and/or heard on the scene. No one was arrested, but Ronnie did have to attend a court date after accusations were made about his allegedly violent behavior.
