FLORENCE, Italy -- Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi was taken into custody in Italy on Monday after allegedly hitting a police car, TMZ reported.
The “Jersey Shore” star, who is currently filming the fourth season of her reality series in Italy along with her castmates, was reportedly driving a car in Florence, when she rear-ended a police vehicle, according to the website.
Deena Nicole Cortese, a newcomer to the “Jersey Shore” cast last season, was reportedly in the car during the alleged accident.
The incident reportedly left Snooki’s car stuck between the police vehicle and a wall, forcing Deena to exit Snooki’s car through a window.
Snooki was reportedly taken into custody following the incident, but it was not a formal arrest, a source connected with the production told the website.
Snooki was arrested in 2010 while filming the third season of the show in Seaside Heights, N.J., and eventually pleaded guilty to disturbing the quiet enjoyment of the beach.
On the episode, Snooki was shown drinking before her arrest. However, this time around, MTV insisted no alcohol was involved.
“Two ‘Jersey Shore’ cast members were involved in a minor traffic accident,” MTV said in a statement on Monday. “No alcohol was involved and no one was arrested.”
