You can bet this is going in the storyline next season!

TMZ reports that while filming scenes for Jersey Shore season 3 back in Seaside Heights, New Jersey today, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi got arrested for disorderly conduct. The local police reportedly confirmed the story–and these photos of Snooks being led away in handcuffs don’t lie.

Update: Video of Snooki falling off a bike is the new “video of Snooki getting punched in the face.” Cringe. Then laugh.

After an afternoon of body shots and sipping Coca-Cola out of a beer bong (that’s our Snickers!), Snooki is apparently in police custody right now. But her Jersey fam is coming to the rescue: Jenni “JWoww” Farley just tweeted that she’s on her way to “free Snooki.” And speaking of “Free Snooki” …

The #FreeSnooki campaign is in full swing on Twitter right now. Duh. That’s just how the world works now. Further proof (besides last night’s epic season 2 premiere, which we recapped in all its glory for your viewing and reading pleasure/disgust) that Jersey Shore mania is hot as ever.

Stay strong, Snooki! And please: Never change. Jersey Shore Season 3: Scared Straight is not a show title I want to see next year.
