The Situation

Police Chief Orders Internal Affairs Investigation

Over Encounter with Cops

8/11/2011 9:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The Situation may have unwittingly gotten some cops in big trouble ... because a police chief in New Jersey has launched an internal affairs investigation ... to determine if his officers crossed the line when they saw people in The Situation's car break the law and then allowed him to skate.

TMZ has video of The Situation, swarmed by cops, as he sat in his Ferrari with 2 female passengers on top of one another.  It's illegal for more than one passenger to sit in a bucket seat, and also illegal for them not to wear seat belts.  The passengers could be cited for their actions and The Situation could be cited for unsafe operation of a vehicle.

According to at least one witness, the officers got The Situation to sign his autograph on their ticket books, and then let them drive off without consequence.

0811-the-situation-mini-videoPolice Chief Thomas Palmisano tells TMZ ... he's reviewed the video and has ordered an internal affairs investigation, adding if the officers crossed the line, they will pay.

And get this ... Chief Palmisano will use our video when training officers -- we're guessing to show them what NOT to do when they encounter celebs on the road.

Big deal. They are adults. They know the consequences of not wearing a seat belt. No one needs to lose their job over this.

Mike looks like a balding old man anyway, whoever is hanging with him is just hoping he'll drop a $100 dollar bill.

Really? Launching investigations over minor seatbelt violations? That's pretty lame. SOunds like the chief senses a moment to look like a hot shot whistle blowing a-hole.
