'Jersey Shore' Fight

Fellas Claim

It Was Self-Defense!

6/9/2012 6:42 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The guys from "Jersey Shore" who got into a bar fight last night are claiming it was all self-defense and they were NOT the ones who swung first ... sources close to the show tell TMZ.

As TMZ first reported, two guys claim they were on the receiving end of an unprovoked attack from Ronnie and Roger and are now planning on suing

But our sources tell a different story -- claiming the two guys were taunting the cast all night and security at the club even tried to get them to leave. Our sources say the guys refused and proceeded to get into the face of Roger and of a friend of Pauly D's named Ryan Labbe.

Our sources say the two guys then threatened to "knock them out" and that's when someone took a swing at Pauly D and all hell broke loose. We're told Ronnie and Roger (along with Pauly D and The Situation) were simply coming to the aid of their guido friend.

We might not find out what really happened ... until the show premieres.

The lawyer for the alleged victims tells TMZ, "We expected the cast to deny the allegations and try to deflect the liability onto the victims. Thankfully the assault was captured by both MTV and Bamboo's cameras so there should no dispute who were the aggressors during this unfortunate incident."

Security tried to get them to leave? They don't have to TRY, if they don't leave you escort them out.

See there is an art to not getting in a fight in NJ. There is always someone around who wants to start a fight, espeically if they think you are something special and it is just a sleazy bar you are in. These local people probably started the fight to try to boost their image and maybe to try to sue and get money from the famously rich cast.

Some NJ people like to pick on NY people because NY people have the rep as being proud and the sleazes in NJ who aren't can make up for it with the dirty politics factor of NJ covering for them.

NJ is full of derranged animals. That is what makes this show so interesting. It shows what it is like for people who just want to have a good time.

This sounds a lot like TMZ got slipped a few bills to promote the show, nothing at all special about the fight....but as TMZ says "We might not find out what really happened ... until the show premieres."

This is crazy, I'm not a fan of JS, it makes us Italians seem like.... On the other hand, every Joe Shmoe want to make a name and a buck trying to pull these guys b***h cards. This might just be a tactic to help with the ratings due to the lack of drinking and F***ing.

Look I dont come on these things to get into fights with anyone cause its just dumb as **** but to sit there and say the people from jerseu shore dont lie and they tell the truth is just funny as **** "they never lie" hahahaha ....Anyway its all comin down to money im sure these dudes did talk **** on all the J.S. people and they did it until one of them got mad enough to throw a punch and they fought , now these 2 regular dudes will get paid because of the few dudes who fought them form the jeresy shore, and instead of going to court they will settle out of court for an undiclosed amount of money.... ****in brilliant if u think about it

Okay so first off I will admit to watching the show...Yes I am ashamed...but from what I have seen the rarely start fights with people- When Ronnie punched a guy out he was being heckled and harassed- the guy just would not leave him alone and he tried to walk away. They always try to keep it calm and offer drinks to people to keep the peace.
