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.

I SWEAR my husband and I were at the same beach visiting from New England. I thought for sure the video was going to be of my husband!- we were shocked there was a charge to enjoy a beach and he went on a bit of a rant to probably the same poor teen pass checker. There was absolutely NO signage indicating a $5 PER PERSON "donation" to help maintain the NATURAL BEAUTY of this beach. Perhaps Joe AND my husband overreacted, but it does seem silly.

They charge to get on the beach in NJ to pay for our lifeguards and to keep our beaches clean!!!! Also since we went through Hurricane Sandy and that storm destroyed most the beaches the money goes to rebuilding them! $5 is not all that much to get on the beach! But besides that was it all that serious for them to make the badge checker cry....smh they always go to the beach and most likely pay, wonder what made it so different this time

PD should have charged the pompous assh0les with Theft of Service. They are far worse than trailer trash.
