In a scene that could be straight out of Jersey Shore, the reality star was taken into custody after becoming embroiled in an argument with his brother at Boca Tanning Salon in Middletown, New Jersey.
A rep for the local police department confirmed the arrest, while The Situation didn't shy away from it, tweeting numerous links to the arrest story on his official Twitter page.
The 31-year-old even tweeted: "GTL : GYM Tan Locked up @ your own tanning salon! That's a Situation wtf (sic)."
That was a play on the famous Jersey Shore slogan, 'GTL: Gym, Tanning, Laundry."
According to police, the star was arrested on a charge of simple assault but released from custody after posting $500 bail. A court date will be set soon.
The Situation became a household name in the US thanks to his role in Jersey Shore. After the show ended, he took part in Celebrity Big Brother over here in the UK.
Most recently, he's been filming a new reality show with his family, called The Sorrentinos, which premieres on US TV later this year and, um, follows them as they open their new tanning salon...
