Sorrentino, 31, reportedly fought with his brother Frank Sorrentino at their family-owned tanning salon, the Boca Tanning Club, on Tuesday, June 17.

The Situation Fights His Brother In Tanning Salon

According to E! News, the brothers were fighting over how best to run their business and Sorrentino went to the salon to fire his brother. Though Sorrentino was spotted leaving the police station with the beginnings of a black eye, he was he only party charged in the fight.

“My brother Frank was not running the store today, so I had to go there and clean house, in more ways than one,” Sorrentino said outside the police station.

After his arrest, Sorrentino made light of the situation on Twitter using his Jersey Shore catchphrase ‘GTL,’ which stands for ‘Gym, Tan, Laundry.’

Frank Sorrentino, on the other hand, tweeted a more serious message to fans on Wednesday, June 18: “’I know everything happens for a reason, but sometimes I wish I knew what that reason was.’”

The Sorrentino family is currently shooting a new reality series, The Sorrentinos, which will chronicle their business ventures, including the tanning salon. And Frank shared a behind the scenes photo of himself shooting The Sorrentinos with his mother on Wednesday, suggesting that the fight could be featured on the show. The Sorrentinos premieres July 15 at 10 p.m. on TVGN.
