Teresa & Joe Giudice

Clash with Cops

Over Five Whole Bucks

8/27/2013 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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.

Joe and Theresa need to be ashamed of themselves ;they ate losers! They were wrong to yell at and curse out that child like she was an adult. How would they feel if some adult cursed out their daughters like that? I bet that Joe would be ready to fight that adult.

TMZ, Ship Bottom is in Long BEACH Island, not Long Island. Not even the same state! And to the rest of the posters, everyone from NJ pays for the beach it's nbd.

Every beach on LBI, where ship bottom is, has a beach fee. You can buy season passes for about $30. Kids under a certain age dont need one. As the guidices have a beach house 8 miles away, they really should know better

The cops should have taking them to jail (WHERE THEY BELONG). I'm sure there were plenty of charges they could have charged them like petty theft, trespassing, public nuisance, public intox. KEEP THE BEACH CLEAN OF (THIS) TRASH!!!!

This is what the country is about pay to sit on the no access to once public lakes and sea shores. But don't redicule Bank of America for stealing 100s of millions from Americans...

Unbelievable. We were on the beach that day sitting right next to them. We left before this went down. The badge checker was the cutest teenage girl - cant believe how mean they were to her. I complain about buying badges every summer too but guess what? We Buy Them. Cause thats what honest people do. How can they not know you have to get beach badges???? Everyone on lbi knows it!

What the hell, Oct 8 starts their Fraud Trial with the Feds and a 39 count indictment has already been handed down, so they are both going to prison so they don't care about a fee for a beach.
