Former Jersey Shore star Michael Sorrentino, better known as The Situation, has agreed to take anger management classes as part of a deal to resolve an assault charge he faced following a fight with his brother.
A municipal court judge in the US said if Sorrentino successfully completes the counselling programme, the charge against him after the fight at his family's tanning salon could be downgraded.
Sorrentino's family, including his brother, attended the hearing. The family-owned Boca Tanning Club is the setting for a new reality show about them.
The cast members of the MTV reality show Jersey Shore, were famed for their love of tanning, including it in their motto "GTL", or gym, tan, laundry.
