'Jersey Shore' Fight

Alleged Victim

Files Criminal Complaint

One of the guys who allegedly got his face bashed in by Ronnie from "Jersey Shore" last week has filed a criminal complaint with police -- and TMZ has learned, it spells big trouble for the reality star.

As we previously reported, a guy named Justin Vigerito (above) was drinking with Ronnie and Jwoww's BF last Friday at a place called Bamboo Bar in Seaside Heights, NJ. According to Justin, his friend Devon tried to join the party ... but someone from the "Shore" crew shoved him in the back, starting a huge brawl.

Justin said he went to help his friend -- and Ronnie clocked him in the face ... before punching him several more times. (Ronnie's been telling friends any punches he threw were in self-defense.)

Now, Justin has gone to cops -- filing a criminal complaint against Ronnie for assault. Seaside Heights police are investigating the incident.

But it's all bad news for Ronnie -- who enrolled in an 18-month pretrial intervention program last year, stemming from his last violent Shore encounter in 2009, when Ronnie allegedly punched another guy in the face.

The program will allow Ronnie to avoid assault charges from the 2009 incident -- but only if he completes his required community service ... and keeps his nose clean.

Unfortunately, punching another guy isn't exactly keeping your nose clean.

White people can't seem to go anywhere without fighting each other like some wild wet dog.

The NJ rednecks hate the kind of people who are from NY or even from NJ and more hip, so they start fights to get a street cred. It is very easy to go with a pack into a bar and set up some people who aren't aware. This could have all have been a set up to get Ronnie to throw some kind of punch and get him in trouble for knocking out the other yokel that he is already in PTI over. They might all know each other and set this up to get Ronnie like they have been trying to from the beginning.


How did someone shove his friend who wandered over and why did he need to help him from a shove, and what kind of help, a punch? This all sounds like baloney to me. I don't think the Jersey Shore people are looking for fights but I know that yokels do. That is about all they have to be proud of in life, while these people get famous for just chilling out and partying. That makes the locals even more jealous and angry.


This is why people just stop hanging out in bars after awhile unless they know how to keep to themselves. Trouble just follows you in certain places where there are sleazy people.

Also I hate having to see that picture of Octomom humiliating herself in that banner along the side. This is not a site where I expect to see porno acts in progress. I think it should be taken down so that people who don't want to see that don't have to.

His injury looks like it was caused by a press on nail.
