Tonight’s episode of MTV’s hit show Jersey Shore will feature another run in with the law. This time around, it involves cast member Ronnie Magro, who was arrested back in September after getting into a fight with another man in front of MTV’s cameras.

Ronnie Ortiz-Magro was arrested on Sept. 4 for aggravated assault for striking a man with a closed fist. Ronnie, 24, tells PEOPLE that though the charges have now been dismissed, he did spend a few hours in jail, had a mug shot taken and paid about $600 for bail.

Ronnie claims he was provoked while he was walking home from a bar with Snooki and their costar Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola. According to Ronnie,  the other person involved in the fight was being disrespectful to his friends, shouted “racist” remarks at their African-American security guards and might have spat on him.  He however regrets the incident, “I definitely felt out of place,” he says of being in jail. “It’s definitely a place I never want to go back to again. Definitely a lesson learned.”

Still A Couple – In other news, Ronnie and his girlfriend from the show, Sammie Sweetheart are surprisingly still going strong.  The pair confirms to PEOPLE that they are indeed still together and care very much for each other.  “I care about her deeply and I see it going for a long time,” Ronnie says. “I don’t really want to jinx anything [but] I love being with her. I have a best friend that’s my girlfriend, which is really hard to find.”

Adds Sammie: “I’m very happy and content with my life right now. Things are just amazing and I’m just gonna go with it.”

Even though a lot of people don’t seem to be fans of MTVs controversial show Jersey Shore, the ratings still continue to rise. Some companies including Domino’s and Dell have pulled their advertising, reports Usmagazine. However, one of the stars of the show isn’t keeping quiet amidst all the controversy, instead the Jersey Shore star Nicole Polizzi (a.k.a. “Snooki“) is saying people who aren’t interested in watching the show should stay away.

“I just have one thing to say to Domino’s, Dell, UNICO and all the other haters out there,” she yelled. “F*** you! If you don’t want to watch, don’t watch. Just shut the hell up! I’m serious… F*** you!”

The controversial MTV reality show follows a group of 20 something year old Italians as they live and work on the Garden State’s shoreline. The Italian-American organization (UNICO) claims that the show perpetuates negative stereotypes and should be pulled off the air. They also want sponsors to boycott the series.

“She is not an embarrassment to Italian Americans — she is actually an embarrassment to the entire human race!!!!” UNICO released in a statement.

In addition to UNICO and advertisers bashing the MTV series, the New Jersey beach town also released a statement saying it doesn’t “solicit” or “promote” the filming of Jersey Shore.

One thing is for sure, if ratings continue to increase like they have then this shore isn’t going off the air anytime soon.

In other news, the Jersey Shore cast received a makeover from Life&Style magazine. The photo of the cast is below –

New Jersey lawmakers are the latest group to get on the anti Jersey Shore bandwagon.

The AP is reporting that the the New Jersey Italian American Legislative Caucus, sent a letter to the president of Viacom, MTV’s parent company on Tuesday. Caucus chairman Joseph Vitale is asking that the show be immediately taken off the air.

The group believes the show promotes derogatory ethnic stereotypes and is “wildly offensive.” The NJ lawmakers are also asking advertisers to boycott the show. As of Wednesday, MTV has yet to issue a response.

In other news, we reported previously that Italian actress Alyssa Milano was not a big fan on the show. In the hilarious Funny or Die clip below, the actress can be seeing portraying castmember Nicole aka Snooki, in a parody of the popular Dove beauty commercial. The clip is below -



Jersey Shore cast members Mike The Situation, Snooki, and DJ Paulie Dialogue also get in on the fun in their own parody video.

Controversy aside, one of the most appalling behaviors on MTV’s Jersey Shore was a teaser clip at the end of episode 1. The clip showed Jersey Shore star, Nicole Polizzi aka Snooki getting punched in the face by a man at a bar.

The man doing the punching has now been identified as Brad Ferro. Brad, a 24 year-old teacher at a New York City high school, was arrested for assault and disorderly conduct in August after hitting Snooki at the Beachcomber Bar & Grill, reports The New York Times. Because the school administrators were not notified, Brad continued to teach gym at North Queens Community High despite the offense.

Now, Brad has stopped teaching and has been placed into one of the Department of Education’s teacher reassignment centers, according to the New York Times. During the night of the incident, Seaside Heights Det. Steve Korman told the Post that the Bartender stopped pouring Brad a drink because he was intoxicated, so he took alcohol belonging to Snooki and her friends.

“That started a verbal altercation after which he struck her in the face,” Korman said. “She sustained an injury to the inside of her mouth due to the punch.”

The controversial show has been criticized by the Italian American community who believe it promotes negative stereotypes and use of the offensive words “Guido” and “Guidette.

MTV has also decided not to air the punch clip anymore in the upcoming episode 4. “What happened to “Snooki” was a crime and obviously extremely disturbing,” MTV said in a statement Friday. “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 to not show the severity of this act or the resulting consequences, MTV has decided not to air “Snooki” being physically punched in next week’s episode.”

MTV said the episode will still make clear what happened that night and plans to air a message at the end of the show listing available resources for those in abusive relationships.

Italian actress Alyssa Milano also recently criticized the show. She told UsWeekly, “My husband actually showed me the trailer on YouTube last night, and I got upset,” she said. “It upset me. I was like, ‘Turn that off!’ So no, I don’t think I’ll be watching that!’”
