"Mob Wives" star Renee Graziano's 17-year-old son AJ Pagan -- also on the reality show -- was arrested Wednesday for his involvement in a massive street brawl ... but he insists he's innocent ... and there's video to prove it.

The rumble went down weeks ago -- AJ's rep tells TMZ, AJ and his girlfriend were driving around Staten Island and noticed two girls beating the crap out of each other on the street ... so they stopped to break it up.

The fight exploded -- involving multiple more people -- and we're told AJ jumped into action ... pulling one of the girls out of the melee. The fight eventually dissipated. No cops were called. And that was that.

Everything seemed hunky-dory until this Wednesday -- when we're told cops showed up at AJ's Staten Island home and arrested him for allegedly hitting one of the girls involved in the fight.

But AJ's rep insists AJ never hit anyone -- and video footage of the fight (above) proves it ... showing AJ pulling one of the girls away from the fight.

According to AJ's rep, the girl accusing him is just out to exploit the reality star because of his "Mob Wives" fame.

AJ's rep adds, "Beyond engaging in violent behavior, it speaks very poorly of this girl's character that she would blatantly lie in an attempt to defame AJ's name. The truth will come out and we feel justice will be served.”

Poor AJ. THIS is what happens when you try to do a good thing. I saw the video & he only tried to save this girl's life while all the other street animals are yelling fight fight! You can even hear AJ saying STOP. Poor kid. He has been thru sooo much with his family. I am a big fan of his, his mom Renee's, and all of the cast, esp my girl Drita! Good for you AJ. You did the right thing when nobody else did!
