The Situation due in court for assault charge

The Situation is due to have his day in court.

Former “Jersey Shore” star Michael Sorrentino, better known as the Situation, is scheduled to appear in Middletown Township municipal court Monday afternoon to answer to simple assault charges.

He was arrested July 15 at the Boca Tanning Club, which he and his family own and which is the setting for a new reality show about them.

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.
