Pauly D Mobbed on College Campus, Cops Called

11/18/2010 10:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Hell broke loose at the University of Rhode Island last night when Pauly D was spotted on campus -- because so many students chased after the guy, that cops had to help the "Jersey Shore" star escape.



Pauly -- who's from Rhode Island -- was on campus to visit a friend ... when word spread on Facebook that he was at the school. Suddenly, students began pouring out of the buildings so they could see Pauly with their own eyes.

In a matter of minutes, roughly 1000 students had surrounded the building where Pauly was holed up.

We're told Pauly's private security eventually grabbed him and stuffed him into his car. Uniformed police officers were also called to the scene to help control the mob.

Pauly finally managed to get out -- but police told the reality star he's not allowed to return to URI unless he coordinates with law enforcement first.

Insane.

I actually go to URI, and I was caught in the middle of this mob on my way back from work. The story is a little exaggerated because there was definitely not 1000 students looking for him. It was much smaller than that. Being in such a small state, most people knew Pauly before the show, so his appearance was not that big of a deal to most. It was a big deal to the Jersey bimbos that go here who were trying to get laid. I just ask you guys don't judge us on how pathetic a very small percentage of the student body were.

Ok really, I don't think people should be judging the entire student body of URI, if you actually went there you would know the sheer amount of ridiculous jersey girls that go there. Most are loud, immature, and yes would stalk Pauly D. However, considering this is only about 1000 kids on the campus, lets consider the other 49,000...with a stupid show you are going to have stupid people, it just comes with the nature of it all.

Probably the first time this guy has ever been on a college campus, I think Pauly, Ronni and the Situation's combined SAT's would be under a 100.

Not all Universities are created equally, and the University of Rhode Island proves it. If this is how they react to talentless MTV "stars," then we should send Spencer Pratt and his wife to Rhode Island.

Not that I'm a fan of Pauly D, BUT - are they saying that every time he wants to go back to Rhode Island to see friends and/or family, he has to coordinate with law enforcement? What if he decides to move back there permanently after "Jersey Shore" is done? Just seems pretty lame to me.

Greeeeeat. So he drives away believing he's even cooler than he really is. Way to inflate his ego, URI.

Reality stars are "famous for nothing" type celebs. Flash in the pan. So not worth the pandemonium.

This article completely exaggerated.. There were definitely not 1000 students out there.. and i know this because i was there.. we're college students, it was a Wednesday night and we're in Rhode ****ing island what did u expect us to do? this was the most excitement that we are all gonna have for a long time and everyone knows it! but let’s be realistic about the cir***stances of this incident he dove to campus in his car which clearly says "pauly d" on it onto campus , parked in a parking lot that was completely out of the way from the dorm he was going to when there were several open spots right behind the dorm he was going to so he had to walk a few minutes before he got to the dorm and to top it off he was going to one of the busiest dorms on campus did he really think people weren’t going to notice him and do nothing?! he knew that was going to happen and he wanted it too. **** what everyone else says yeaa it was dumb but it was fun seeing him and taking pictures.
IF YOU DON’T LIKE HIM THEN WHY ARE YOU WASTING YOUR TIME WRITING ON THIS POST.. ITS NOT GOING TO CHANGE ANYTHING SO GET OVER IT… SORRY
