The Situation

Police Chief Orders Internal Affairs Investigation

Over Encounter with Cops

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

0811_situation_EX_02
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.

Celebrities Suck    

the cop is just jealous because he only makes $30k a year and snitch is driving a Ferrari.. NYC cops don't make a lot of many a year mean while they put thier life on the line everyday and they walk around the city of NY thinking that they rule the city..Idiots!

New Jersey cops are always playing the favoritism game. Any car with a PBA sticker gets a pass. Anyone who is friends with a cop gets a pass. It happens across all agencies and boundaries. Quite a joke actually.

The disciplinary action will be nothing compared to the ball busting they'll take for wanting Sitch's autograph. Douches.

Cops should not be wasting time doing this when there are lemonade stands to be shut down.

As a native New Jerseyan, I'll speak for most of us here and say how disgusted we all are at these NON-Jerseyans (well, except for Sammi who is, well, pathetic) who basically destroyed the original concept of the Jersey Shore. Most ppl I know w/homes on Seaside don't even want to go there any longer--there's a massive police patrol around those tools from MTV on a 24/7 basis...and, there are tons of followers looking for their moment. I know others have said it but, these ppl (again,not from Jersey), are a complete and total embarrassment to those of us here and not at all representative of the rest of us.
