Ortiz might have one rule on the show: Don't fall in love at the Jersey Shore. He apparently does not have any similar rule about following the finer points of the law. This arrest pales in comparison to his arrest for punching a guy out during Season 1 or a January incident in which Ortiz was arrested for aggravated assault. And Jersey Shore costar Snooki was arrested just weeks ago for disorderly conduct.
Ortiz was arrested once again in Seaside Heights, where MTV is currently filming the third season of Jersey Shore, but not at the boardwalk. This time police caught up with him at 1209 Ocean Terrace.
But if The Situation was hoping for some time to pursue Sammi Sweetheart with the Ortiz out of the picture, he'll be disappointed. Ortiz was processed and then released Sunday by the Seaside Heights Police Department after he satisfied the conditions of his warrants.
