"They probably figured where there's smoke, there might be a wide-scale fire!"

Sorrentino, 35, and his brother Marc were smacked with nine counts of tax fraud for allegedly scheming to hide income related to his reality TV fame.

If convicted, the two could be slapped with up to 20 years in prison.

None of the other Jersey Shore cast members have been charged with a crime so far.

After sarcastically thanking Sorrentino, Snooki added: "You don't mess with the government."
