"Sammi Giancola, has since returned to New York and is therefore beyond our jurisdiction. Consequently, this case is closed," SAO spokesperson Ed Griffith wrote. "This case could be revisited if and when the accused returns to this jurisdiction."
So Sammi and the rest of the Jersey Shore cast getting the boot from Miami Beach after filiming part of Season 2 might have saved her a night or two in jail. And maybe this ensures they will never come back again.
On May 8, Kristen DeMinco had the unfortunate pleasure of becoming the target of a reality TV moment when she and her friends decided to party with the Jersey Shore at Club Dream.
DeMinco, a 24-year-old student, started talking to a man who she claims she didn't know was Sammi's boy toy. Sammi and DeMinco exchanged words before it escalated to a one-sided cat fight with Sammi allegedly punching the woman in the face twice.
The prosecutor's evidence was probably the shiner DeMinco sported for several days before bringing the fight to the attention of the press.
DeMinco has decided to file a civil lawsuit against Sammi and MTV.
