Ronnie Has Day In Court From Season One Jersey Shore Fight

Remember during the first season of Jersey Shore when Ronnie knocked that random dude out with one punch? Well, the twenty-five year old reality star finally had his day in court, and all things considered, it went pretty well. He was admitted into what basically amounts as a deferment program. If he avoids any other altercations for eighteen months, the charge will be dropped from his record, and he'll be free to go his own way without ever admitting guilt. There may or may not be some community service involved, but that'll be determined at the judge's discretion at a later date.

According to The Asbury Park Press, the victim of said assault, Stephen Izzo, filed a civil suit seeking monetary damages against both Ronnie and MTV, but that case has yet to make it to trial. There was a time in this country when if you talked shit and got your clock cleaned, you dusted yourself off and took the beating like a man. Let the record show those days are long gone. Honestly, I'm not condoning hitting someone in the face, but in my book, if you antagonize a situation and get popped once, you've got nothing to complain about, just a whole lot to be embarrassed over.

The fifth season of Jersey Shore is currently filming at the title location. Rumors have been swirling that this may be the last go-around for the original cast, but there's really no way of knowing at this juncture. In the mean time, it's probably best Ronnie keeps his hands in his pockets and his nose clean. Whenever they wander to far, it seems either Sam or the police wind up furious.
