Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino Arrested After Fight In N.J. Tanning Salon

MIDDLETOWN, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) - Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino was arrested at a tanning salon Tuesday, police said.

The incident took place at Boca Salon at around 2 p.m., police said.

Sorrentino, 31, was allegedly involved in a fistfight with another man at the salon. Sorrention owns the salon with his family. Police Detective Lt. Stephen Dollinger did not have details on what sparked the fight or who else was involved.

He was released on $500 bail.

It was interesting timing, with Sorrentino due to return to reality television this summer in the TV Guide Network's ``The Sorrentinos,'' which will follow his family as they try to open their own tanning salon.

Messages left for Sorrentino's publicist and for a California attorney who has previously represented him weren't returned.

Sorrentino was born on Staten Island, and grew up in Manalapan Township, New Jersey. He is best known for appearing in all for the entire run of MTV's "The Jersey Shore."

The cast members of the MTV reality show ``Jersey Shore,'' filmed in Seaside Heights, were known for their love of tanning and the motto GTL -- or gym, tan, laundry. They also were known for a rowdy, partying lifestyle that resulted in some cast members getting in fights and others facing legal troubles for alcohol-related incidents.

In an interview last September, Sorrentino told The Associated Press that he had gone through rehab for an addiction to painkillers.
