Teresa & Joe Giudice

Clash with Cops

Over Five Whole Bucks

Five stinkin' dollars ... that's what started a massive argument this weekend between several police officers and "Real Housewives" stars Teresa and Joe Giudice -- all because the couple didn't want to pay a tiny beach entrance fee, sources tell TMZ.

Here's the back story -- the Giudices were kickin' it on Ship Bottom beach on Long Beach Island, NJ Saturday afternoon (with roughly 30 friends and family members) when they were approached by a teen girl beach worker.

Sources on the scene tell us, the employee asked to see the Giudices' "beach badges" -- basically $5 admission tickets required to chill in the sand -- and the family flipped, refusing to "pay to go to the beach."

We're told one family member even yelled at the girl, saying, "F*** you, f*** this we are not paying for the f***ing beach. This is a joke!" Remember: 5 dollars per person.

We're told the girl started crying, and when beach PD responded ... the Giudices continued to kick up a stink, but eventually coughed up chump change.

Of course, Teresa and Joe are facing massive money fraud charges, but still -- 2 TV stars oughta cough up 5 dollars without a fight.

Beach entrance fee? What kind of nonsense is that? This should not be happening in America.

The $5 wasn't a beach fee. It was a white trash fee.
The people complaining about paying for the beach, have they ever been to a national park, state park, or national forest?? It costs $20+ to go to a forest, so $5 is cheap for a beach.

OK    

They have one hell of a nerve to think they are entitled to not pay like the rest of the public. They should be keeping a low profile and be thankful they aren't in jail.

They have always been nothing but low life s***bags. You can take them out of the ghetto, but you can never take the ghetto out of them. Prime #1 douc$ebags.

I think going to the beach should be free and all of the taxes we pay should fund it. Sadly that isn't the case in much of NJ and NY (and probably other places too). It has been this way since I was a kid, so we have been paying to go to the beach here for 40 years now, if not longer. I rarely go anymore, because I can't afford it, but if I have to pay, then people that think they are celebrities, have tv shows and big salaries while cheating on their taxes should definitely pay ! It was so much better when I lived in FL, visited VA, DE, SC and CA and the beaches were always free. NY and NJ charge some of the highest taxes in the country and then they expect everyone to pay even more just to go to the beach. It's the land of the free, unless you can't afford it.

"2 TV stars oughta cough up 5 dollars without a fight."

great math skills TMZ, 2 times $5 is $10 and of course there were more than 2 people in their group..so that figure is a bit off.

Least you forget they're both out on 1/2 million dollar bonds. Not to smart, since an arrest of any kind .. would cause either or both to have to sit in jail until trial. The bond would be revoked. These two are complete idiots.
