Mike Sorrentino has been a bad boy! The Jersey Shore alum found himself in trouble with the law last month after a brawl with his big brother, Frank Sorrentino, and it’s ended with a 12-week anger management sentence.
Sorrentino and his brother were involved in an altercation last month at their family’s tanning salon in Middletown Township, New Jersey. Apparently, Sorrentino accused his brother, Frank, of “not running the store correctly, so I had to go in there and clean house — in more ways than one.”
The altercation landed the reality TV star an arrest last month and on Monday, July 28, he was ordered by the New Jersey municipal court judge to attend anger management classes as part of a deal to resolve the assault charges, the Star-Ledger reports.
Sorrentino also revealed to the Star-Ledger earlier this month at the opening of his family’s second tanning salon that he was confident that the charged would be dismissed.
“It was a simple situation that was blown out of proportion, and the family and I will handle it as it comes and move on from that,” Sorrentino revealed.
Sorrentino agreed in court on Monday that he would attend a private, one-on-one program and judge Richard Thompson stated that if the 32-year-old star completes his program, then the charge against him could be downgraded to a lesser violation.
Sorrentino’s family has not turned their back on him, either, and his mother, Linda, younger sister Melissa, and both his brothers, Marc and Frank, were present for his hearing.
So, how does Sorrentino feel about the anger management sentence? It appears that he’s welcoming the thought.
“I don’t know if I’m excited, but if that’s what’s needed… maybe it will help me out,” he revealed to TMZ.
