Snooki Car

On May 30rd 2011 Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and a fellow "Jersey Shore" cast member were involved in a minor traffic accident in Italy.

The popular MTV reality show was filming its fourth season in Florence.

The network said in a statement that two cast members were involved in a crash. The statement said no alcohol was involved and no one was arrested. It provided no further details.

SallyAnn Salsano, executive producer at "Jersey Shore" production company 495, told "The Star-Ledger" newspaper that the incident was "just a minor fender bender." She stated the show was still filming.

Photos posted on celebrity gossip website show Snooki and co-star Deena Nicole Cortese, apparently uninjured, sitting on the sidewalk after the crash.

The incident reportedly left Snooki’s car stuck between the police vehicle and a wall, forcing Cortese 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 TMZ.

Us Magazine reported then that "Jersey Shore" star Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi's license was revoked and that she might also be heading to court as a result of her recent fender bender.

In detail, while shooting the fourth season of MTV's smash reality show, Snooki was driving a Fiat Multipla with co-star Deena Cortese riding shotgun when they clipped a police cruiser (which was their escort). She trapped her Fiat between the police car and the highway wall. As a result, the minor fender-bender sent the two Italian police officers to the hospital. Once she injured a fellow motorist, Snooki automatically lost her license to drive in Florence, under Italian law.

"It was nothing serious and they have been released, but they will not be back at work for a week," a Florence police spokesman told the press.

Under Italian law, Snooki didn't face any real criminal prosecution.

It has to be mentioned that the officers suffered whiplash-like injuries and minor bruises and cuts.

While she was not injured in the car crash, Snooki sported a neck brace while walking down the streets of Florence followed by camera crews. She was later seen ripping it off in laughter.

After news of her minor fender bender broke, the President of a national Italian American group UNICO labeled Snooki as the country's worst ever export. To Radar Online, Andre Dimino revealed, "She really is the lowest of the low and will do anything for attention, even hitting a police car. She is our worst ever export and is an embarrassment for Italian Americans and our whole country."

"For MTV to go and film in Italy was totally ill conceived, and this latest incident has just added insult to injury as far as I'm concerned," Andre continued on. "The whole situation is actually really sad, and it is painting our country in a terrible light."

 Us Weekly additionally reported that the reality series cast has collected over 300 Euros worth of fines for various traffic violations since they arrived in Italy three weeks ago.

What do you think of Snooki's behaviour?
