A prosecutor says Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi is not just being charged with disorderly conduct and creating a public nuisance, but also annoying people on a beach.
Yes, that’s a crime in New Jersey.
At a hearing in Seaside Heights on Wednesday, an attorney for the Jersey Shore star entered not guilty pleas to all three charges, which relate to an arrest July 30 for being intoxicated in public.
No matter how it turns out, the pint-sized Snooki is not expected to serve jail time. If she’s convicted of all three charges, she faces $2,000 in fines. Her attorney claims her clean record should keep maximum fines down to $500.
Snooki says the case has made her “feel like a criminal” and that it’s caused her to rethink her habits.
