Jersey Shore's Deena Cortese Fined For Dancing In Traffic
In one of the stranger Jersey Shore-related arrests weíve seen, Deena Cortese was booked last month for disorderly conduct after officers observed her dancing in the middle of traffic. In addition to pissing off drivers and endangering herself, the reality starís actions also worried her parents who immediately headed down to the Shore to bail her out. Luckily, after the dust settled in court today, the fallout didnít wind up being nearly as severe as it could have been.
According to E! News, the prosecution dropped the charges against Deena and instead hit her with a traffic summons ticket for not using the sidewalk and just shy of one hundred and forty dollars in fines and court costs. Given her salary, thatís definitely not more than she can handle, and more importantly, her stupid incident wonít follow her around for years because seeing as how itís now a traffic violation, it wonít go on her record.
Deena might be a bit of a mess, but sheís hardly a threat to public safety. Provided she doesnít get behind the wheel after boozing and sticks to the sidewalks from now on, itís hard to imagine sheíll wind up in jail again anytime soon. If she does however, itís entirely possible her parents and friends might let her soak up the atmosphere as a further preventative measure.
Thereís no word yet on whether we might see any of this footage during the next season of Jersey Shore, but weíll keep our fingers crossed that cameras were around.
