Washington: ‘Jersey Show’ host Nicole Polizzi aka ‘Snooki’ has been released after being arrested for disorderly conduct on a beach in New Jersey.

An officer at the Seaside Heights, New Jersey police department confirmed that the 22-year-old star was arrested and released the same day.

"On Friday at approximately 15:23 hours, Nicole Polizzi was acting in a disorderly matter while on the beach... Miss Polizzi was escorted from the beach by patrolmen and placed under arrest for disorderly conduct ...near the boardwalk,” quoted Thomas J. Boyd, Chief of Police as saying.

“She was transported to police headquarters and later released on a summons," he added.

A spokesperson at the police department explained, "A summons means she`ll get a court date, but doesn`t have to pay bail to get out of jail. She`ll pay a fine when assessed [by a judge]."

When asked about Snooki`s attitude while arrested, the spokesperson told Us, "The disorderly conduct charge pretty much explains it."
