Snooki On Her Arrest: ‘I’m Too Pretty To Be In Jail’

'I'm not a criminal, and I will never go back there,' the 'Jersey Shore' star says of her jail stay.

As far as welcome-back parties go, it left a little to be desired.

Not long after the “Jersey Shore” crew returned to Seaside Heights following their second-season shoot in Miami, poof-haired reality star Snooki was arrested for disorderly conduct on the boardwalk.

Though Snickers spent a few hours in police custody and has an upcoming court date, she’s not taking the whole thing too seriously and is looking forward to a GTL-filled summer at the Shore as the second season of MTV’s show continues.

“I don’t know why people are taking it so seriously,” she told MTV News on Friday evening. “I had a couple cocktails and they just put me in a drunk tank to sober me up. I was on the beach. It happens to the best of us, and I’m not planning on going back to jail ever again. I was a public nuisance — big deal!”

The disorderly conduct charge carries a potential fine of between $250 and $1,000, but Snooki will not face any jail time . That’s a good thing, clearly, because one place the 22-year-old does not want to be is behind bars.

“I’m too pretty to be in jail,” Snooki said. “I’m a good person. I’m not a criminal, and I will never go back there.”

“You can’t even contain me,” she added with a laugh. “When I was in there, I was like, ‘Can I come out? I can’t breathe!’ Not a fun place. I will never go back.”
