Snooki Punched in the Face by Brad Ferro: Jersey Shore Fight
The new MTV show Jersey Shore has only aired three episodes, and already the drama is so over the top that it's even had a drinking game created in its honor.
Well, episode four will see a different kind of drama, and one that is making critics of the already criticized show even more angry as it involves a man punching a woman at a club: Snooki gets punched in the face.
Turns out the drunken man seen punching cast member Nicole Polizzi, or 'Snooki', is none other than Brad Ferro, a public school teacher at North Queens Community High School.
Mr. Ferro, 24, was arrested for assault and disorderly conduct just after 2am on August 19th for punching Nicole at the Beachcomber Bar & Grill. Nicole accused Brad Ferro of stealing drinks that were meant for her and her other cast member friends, and that's when Ferro punched her.
Brad Ferro has now been moved in to a Queens teacher reassignment center and taken out of his class. His school didn't know about his arrest until it aired on MTV as the arrest took place out of state.
MTV has also decided not to air the fight in the episode so you won't be able to see it. They released this statement:
"What happened to Snooki was a crime and obviously extremely disturbing," MTV said in a written statement. "After hearing from our viewers, further consulting with experts on the issue of violence, and seeing how the video footage has been taken out of context not to show the severity of this act or resulting consequences, MTV has decided not to air Snooki being physically punched in the face."
