'Jersey Shore' Cast Member Arrested on Disorderly Conduct Charge in Seaside Heights

Deena Cortese disrupted traffic, police say.

A cast member of the Jersey Shore show was arrested this afternoon in Seaside Heights after a police officer saw her appearing intoxicated and disrupting the flow of traffic, Detective Steven Korman said.

Deena Cortese, 25, of New Egypt, was charged with disorderly conduct after the 3:48 p.m. incident, he said.

Cortese and some other Jersey Shore cast members were in Spicy's Mexican Cantina at 500 Boardwalk near the intersection of Sumner Avenue and Ocean Terrace before the incident occurred, he said.

Cortese went outside and started dancing in the middle of the street, disrupting the flow of traffic, he said.

"Patrolman Chris Linnell placed her under arrest," Korman said. "Traffic was building up and the officer had to act, obviously."

I hate everything about them and the show and all the protection they have so they dnt get hit or beat up. i wouldn't spit on them cause they don't deserve a REAL jersey shore person spitting on them. they would rub it in wishing to be a REAL jersey shorian (dnt know if word). They give ud such a bad name, look, etc.

Ok Lee Lee let me know if you live there all year round because my 90 year old nana does and I'm there all the time and it is not just welfare, drug dealers and scum. My nana worked the boardwalk til she was 85 and enjoys living there. So live there before you speak you ignorant person.

@ Christina, I lived there for 3 years. It's a very scary place. A VERY SCARY PLACE. No one raising a family should live there. I really fell sorry for the family's that do live there because their children never have the same classmates the following year because the mothers on welfare never stay. Hence, difference students every year.

Well said Christina. There are plenty of people who live there who are not welfare moms. Unfortunately, these motels take in the ones who are and they ruin it for the entire town and give the good people who live there a bad reputation.

If you talk to people in other states they think that it is how we live at the shore. This is what upsets people who have been here for years. We all know point is for families and seaside for bennies. So, jack up all prices to the max and us locals use point for the shore. Let the bennies stay there just stay out of Brick we have our own problems here.
