We’ve done our best trying to navigate the timeline of Jersey Shore star Deena Nicole’s arrest on Sunday (June 10), but now the Seaside Heights police are speaking up about why she was arrested in the first place, and what kind of punishment she faces.

Detective Steve Korman tells The Huffington Post that Deena was arrested for “disorderly conduct.” The detective says that Deena “and other cast members were in a Mexican restaurant before Cortese went into the roadway and began dancing and impeding traffic.”

We assume that he’s referring to the rumor that Deena was pounding her open fists on passing cars, and dancing on the boardwalk. The detective also said that “an officer saw Cortese and said she appeared to be intoxicated.”

Though Deena was quickly processed and picked up by her parents (check out photos here), Detective Korman stated that Deena still faces a possible $500 fine and up to 30 days in jail.

Whatever happens, we hope Deena doesn’t end up doing hard time. We can’t stand any time away from our little merp meatball!
