SEASIDE HEIGHTS - Calling her "a Lindsay Lohan wannabe," a judge has fined "Jersey Shore" star Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi $533 and ordered her to perform community service after she pleaded guilty to violating a local "interference" law in Seaside Heights.

Nicole Polizzi made her grand entrance into Seaside Heights Municipal Court surrounded by security guards to get through the mob of media. Once inside, Polizzi apologized to police and anyone else she bothered on the beach, claiming the incident was not scripted as part of the show, even though cameras were rolling during it.
Polizzi was arrested on a Seaside Heights beach in late July. As part of a negotiated plea deal, Polizzi pleaded guilty to one count of interfering with the quiet enjoyment of the beach - essentially disturbing the peace. Charges of disorderly conduct and criminal annoyance of others were dropped.
Municipal Court Judge Damian G. Murray gave her credit for one day of community service that she spent caring for abused and neglected animals at Popcorn Park Zoo in Lacey Township on Sunday.
Polizzi took to her Twitter page shortly after her court appearance, saying "Ah never again! So scary...thank you judge for understanding, I'm very thankful for that! Whew...now I can breath(e)!"
