Snooki said she belongs on the shore -- not behind bars.
Snooki, whose real name is Nicole Polizzi, was arrested July 30 in New Jersey for disorderly conduct while out filming the third season of “Shore.”
The Marlboro, N.Y.-native told MTV on Friday that she couldn’t understand why people were taking her arrest “so seriously.”
"I had a couple cocktails and they just put me in a drunk tank to sober me up,” Snooki said. “I was on the beach. It happens to the best of us, and I'm not planning on going back to jail ever again. I was a public nuisance — big deal!"
She added: "When I was in there, I was like, 'Can I come out? I can't breathe!' Not a fun place. I will never go back."
Snooki is due to appear in Seaside Heights municipal court on August 18.
