"Snooki" gets $500 fine, community service

Posted: 02:52 PM ET

Seaside Heights, NJ – A New Jersey judge Wednesday sentenced Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, the MTV "Jersey Shore" star, to two days of community service with animal control and a $500 fine after she agreed to plead guilty to annoying others on a beach.

Polizzi was arrested in July on charges of disorderly conduct and creating a public nuisance.

The judge also ordered that she pay $33 in court costs and gave her one day credit on the community service sentence, according to an In Session producer in the courtroom.

In delivering his sentence Seaside Heights Municipal Judge Damian Murray said: “You seem to be acting like a Lindsay Lohan wannabe . . . this is not the way you want to live your life."

In Session has confirmed that the one municipal ordinance that  Polizzi plead guilty to violating was "interfering with the enjoyment of the quiet use of the beach or public boardwalk."

The other two counts, disorderly conduct and creating a public nuisance, were dismissed.

Defense attorney Ray Raya went over his version of the events that led to this hearing. He admitted that “Snooki” was under the influence, “and interfered the public’s right to quiet enjoyment of the beach. . .  such conduct would not be criminal in nature, and would not rise to the level of disorderly conduct.”

She probably took it as a compliment.

She looks like the court is wasting her time *ugh*

Makes sense. She has no standards so lowering them chasing Lohan makes perfect sense for a non-talented, barely coherent, reality person. (Couldn't bring myself calling these reality pukes stars).

Is Ray Raya a playa ????. Seriously,hope Snooki will be a better person & stop drinking & be the lady she should be. Let's all move on.

I don't see her as a Lindsay wanna be I see her as nothing more than a spoiled drunk just like a dozen other kids at the beach only difference is she gets paid to look like a moron. I don't see why people are so fascinated with this person, she has no talent, looks bad in everything she wears and appears to be dim by most standards.

This girl says she`s too pretty to go to jail!!! Are you kidding me?? I would hate to see her without makeup. What a sight that would be!!! Just like Lohan, no makeup = ugly. The only talent that both of them have is being late for court. Like other comments, she has no talent.

first thing she should have done was apoligize for being late !!!! she is NOT too pretty to go to jail !!!! please spare me..

The youth today seems to have no good examples (in the spotlight) to look up to!! If I had a child, I wouldn't let them watch any of the filth that's on stations like Mtv and VH1 these days...All they do on the Jersey Shore is: Get wasted, act like idiots, and fight. Snooki is a hot mess and needs to get a reality check or she could very well wind up behind bars like LiLo and Paris Hilton did...It's no way to live life: disrespecting yourself and others.
