Ronnie's unresolved assault case stemming from that one-hit knock out back in Season 1 is standing in the way of him getting a Visa to shoot Season 4 of Jersey Shore in Italy, but his manager isn't too worried about it — relax guys, it's a Jersey thing.

"Until he is actually convicted of a crime, he can go wherever he wants," says Matt Cohen, his manager. That may be true Stateside but whether or not he gets cleared for an Italian Visa is up to the Italian government, not Ronnie's legal standing in the US.

"We have plans for Ronnie to be part of season four of Jersey Shore and travel to Italy for the show. Ronnie is taking the case very seriously and hopes for a positive outcome."

Way to deflect, dude. We hope Ron-Ron offers a nice bonus for that. Start printing the "Free Ronnie" tees now.
