As devoted Jersey Shore fans know, Ronnie is currently in legal trouble over a recent bar brawl. Justin Vigerito, one of the alleged victims of the fight, filed a criminal complaint against Ronnie (as well as MTV and its parent company Viacom), alleging that the Jersey Shore star instigated the fight.  

Now E! is reporting that Ronnie has a court date: July 3, 2012. This is notable because, last we heard, Season 6 was supposed to wrap filming on July 7.

We're not yet sure how Ronnie's court date will affect filming, if it affects it at all. It's possible they'll keep the cameras rolling and ignore Ronnie's absence — or maybe even follow him to the courthouse, since the fight was captured on film.

We'll keep you updated as more information becomes available.
