MIDDLETOWN, N.J. —The Situation will be getting lessons in anger management.

Former “Jersey Shore” star Michael Sorrentino, better known as The Situation, has agreed to take the class as part of a deal to resolve simple assault charges after a July 15 fight with his brother at the family tanning salon in Middletown Township. A municipal court judge accepted the deal Monday and adjourned the matter for three months. If Sorrentino successfully completes the counseling program, the charge against him could be downgraded.

Sorrentino’s family – including his brother – attended the court 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 known for their love of tanning and the motto GTL, or gym, tan, laundry. They also were known for a partying lifestyle that resulted in some cast members getting in fights and some facing legal troubles related to alcohol use.
