Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino was arrested at a tanning salon, because of course he was

But wait, it gets better. Check this sentence out… Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino of Jersey Shore fame was not only arrested at a tanning salon, but it was his family’s salon, and drumroll… he was fighting with his brother. Was there a sentence ever written that rings more believable?

According to the Middletown Police public information officer, authorities responded to a 911 call claiming that a fight had broken out in the salon around 2 p.m. local time.

The 31-year-old, who suffered minor injuries, was arrested for simple assault and posted $500 bail. A court date has not yet been set for The Situation.

A source tells us that the altercation was between The Situation and his brother Frank Sorrentino.

Things had been tense between the two siblings, with their fight originating on Twitter and later escalating when the MTV actor went to the salon to tell Frank he was fired.

But wait, as amazing as that is, it gets EVEN BETTER. Frank and Mike are going to appear in a new reality show for TV Guide Network dubbed The Sorrentinos beginning on July 15th that follows the Sorrentinos as they open up this very same tanning salon.

We can hardly wait.
