'Jersey Shore's' Angelina -- The Fight Before the Fight

Angelina Pivarnick got in a fight tonight -- but it wasn't the fight she was supposed to get in ... so she got tossed out of a New Jersey nightclub.

Angelina was scheduled to participate in a celebrity fight against Kerry Schwartz from "Frank the Entertainer in a Basement Affair" tonight in Atlantic City. But sources tell TMZ Angelina got into it with an unidentified female at the Taj Mahal before she ever stepped in the ring.

We're told police were called and Angelina was questioned, but not arrested. According to our sources, Angelina was escorted out after she was done talking to cops.

Angelina's lawyer tells TMZ, "We believe Angelina is innocent of any allegations and if there is any legal action, we will fight it vigorously."
