Jersey Shore‘s Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi was ordered to pay a $500 fine for disturbing beach-goers in New Jersey in July, the Associated Press reports. Judge Damian G. Murray — who called the reality star “a Lindsay Lohan wannabe” in court — also ruled that Polizzi perform community service, but credited her one day for her work helping abused animals in a zoo. Polizzi pleaded guilty to disturbing others in court, and apologized for her behavior on the day of her arrest. She also claimed her manner was not scripted for Jersey Shore.
