Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino was arrested at his family's tanning salon in Middletown, N.J., Tuesday. He was charged with simple assault after a fight.

About 2 p.m., police responded to calls reporting an altercation involving Situation at Boca Tanning Club, Middletown Police Det. Lt. Stephen Dollinger said. 

The former MTV reality star has posted $500 bail and was released. TMZ reports that the fight was between Sorrentino and his brother Frank.

Mike also has a sweet black eye now. Looks like he lost.

Dollinger said he could not confirm who was involved in the fight, but E! News says a Twitter feud between the pair escalated quickly Tuesday afternoon.

Mike Sorrentino allegedly went to the salon to tell his brother that he was fired, setting off a skirmish, which was not the first eyebrow-raising event there.

On June 2, five employees at the salon filed police reports claiming their paychecks bounced. According to cops, each employee was owed between $100-200.

Dollinger said he called the salon and informed Frank Sorrentino the family had a week to pay its employees to avoid criminal complaints being filed.

Immediately after, the employees were paid.

The Sorrentinos, a show featuring the Jersey Shore alum, his mother, Linda, his brothers Marc and Frank, and sister Melissa, debuts July 15 on TV Guide Network.

Yes, someone produced this program.
