Jersey Shore is the show that's captivated the nation, and RadarOnline.com has the latest on the juiced-up kids from Seaside Heights.
A pair of confrontations highlighted Thursday night's show, as the hijinks started after some late-night, girl-on-girl barbs aimed by some unnamed locals towards the show’s breakout star, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi.
“Get out here with your tramp outfits; you’re dressed like a f***ing whore! ” the hecklers said to Snooki, apparently finding her push-up and pink outfit rather offensive.
Then, some of the men with the offending ladies demonstrated their Alpha-male ways with chest thumps and fist bumps -- big mistake, as cast member Ronnie Magro, 23, stepped in and took matters into his own hands, running full-tilt at an unknown male and punching him square in the face.
“That’s one shot, that’s one shot, kid,” Magro boasted, like the second coming of Rocky Balboa -- before bolting the scene.
But alas, it was too late, as Seaside Heights police tracked the MTV hooligan down, and placed him in custody as the reality cameras ran.
“It was self defense bro,” Magro, 23, told the cops.
Despite criticism from Italian-American groups -- and the loss of some key sponsors -- the controversial MTV breakout continues to surge in popularity, with plenty of dust-ups, hook-ups and break-ups fueling each episode.
New episodes of Jersey Shore air on MTV Thursdays at 10/9c.
