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.”
