    The Situation Lands Some New Jersey Cops in Hot Water

    The Situation has apparently caused a situation with New Jersey's Finest.

    The Jersey Shore star was having a good time cruising around in his Ferrari with two female passengers Sunday night outside of a Belmar, New Jersey, nightclub when local police approached him. But instead of busting the posse for some modest law-breaking—including not wearing seat belts and citing Sitch for unsafe operation of a vehicle for allowing his lady friends to sit on top of one another in the bucket seat, you'll never guess what these cops ended up doing.

    Asking for his autograph!

    Well their actions and guffawing over a celebrity didn't go over too well with Belmar Police Chief Thomas Palmisano, who has since ordered an international affairs investigation into their actions.

    A Belmar Police Department spokesman, Captain Andrew Huisman, tells E! News that they received photos and video of the officers failing to cite Mr. Six Pack for a number of broken laws.

    "The allegation was there was two people in front seat without their seatbelt on and the officers didn't act on it," says Huisman.

    Confirming that a probe was initiated today, the Captain notes that "it's all about the officers' behavior. "

    Huisman confirms that according to at least one witness, the officers got The Situation (real name Mike Sorrentino) to sign his autograph on their ticket books, and then let them drive off without consequence.

    "The officers knew who this person was and got their autographs and weren't thinking," he adds. "If there was a violation of the law, then they should have acted."

    He said the paparazzi video which they received will be used for future training purposes to avoid a repeat and make sure that celebrities aren't above the law in his town again.
