(Newser) – Nicole Polizzi, aka Snooki, was arrested this afternoon and charged with disorderly conduct, TMZ reports. The Jersey Shore star ran afoul of the law in Seaside Heights, NJ, where the MTV show was filming. She had been seen at the beach earlier in the day drinking Coke out of a beer bong. A source tells People, "She didn’t hurt anyone or get in a fight. She just needs to be in a drunk tank for two hours."

"She was being very disorderly on the beach, bothering other patrons there," a local official tells the Newark Star-Ledger. "When our police went to deal with the situation—not Mike 'The Situation'—they found they needed to arrest her." The diminutive reality icon is having a rough week—she's already been dissed by a New York Times reporter, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, and President Obama.
