Gym, tan, jail: The Situation faces assault charge after fight at New Jersey tanning salon

MIDDLETOWN TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) — It was gym, tan, jail for The Situation as he was arrested Tuesday after a fight at a tanning salon.

The former “Jersey Shore” cast member, whose real name is Mike Sorrentino, was charged with simple assault after the afternoon confrontation at the Boca salon in Middletown Township, which he and his family own and operate. He posted $500 bail and was released; a court date hasn’t been scheduled.

Officers went to the salon around 2 p.m. on a report of a fight in progress, said police Detective Lt. Stephen Dollinger. He didn’t have details on what sparked the fight or who else was involved.

Interesting timing, with Sorrentino due to return to reality television this summer in the TV Guide Network’s “The Sorrentinos,” which will follow his family as they try to open their own tanning salon.

Messages left for Sorrentino’s publicist and for a California attorney who has previously represented him weren’t returned.

The cast members of the MTV reality show “Jersey Shore,” filmed in Seaside Heights, were known for their love of tanning and the motto GTL — or gym, tan, laundry. They also were known for a rowdy, partying lifestyle that resulted in some cast members getting in fights and others facing legal troubles for alcohol-related incidents.

In an interview last September, Sorrentino told The Associated Press that he had gone through rehab for an addiction to painkillers.

Riley was in his City Hall office when Hurricane Hugo crashed ashore on Sept. 21, 1989, ripping the roof off City Hall. A quarter century  later Riley, the longest-serving mayor in Charleston history, says the preparation and the recovery from the storm were the most important time in his service to the city. Sunday, Sept. 21, 2014 is the 25th anniversary of Hugo's landfall. (AP Photo/Bruce Smith)
