Snooki's Italian car accident: License lost; lawsuit possible

Snooki loses her license after crashing into a cop car in Italy Looks like the "Jersey Shore" gang might need to have their pasta delivered to the crib -- at least one cast member is no longer allowed to drive.

Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi was behind the wheel of a Fiat Multipla in Florence, Italy, on Monday afternoon when she crashed into the back of a police car (a police car, Snook?). Co-star Deena Cortese was in the passenger seat, as the whole gang is filming the current season of the MTV reality show in Italy.

The officers involved in the crash, a male and female, suffered minor injuries such as cuts and bruises, according to Us Weekly. Polizzi was taken into custody but not formally arrested. MTV Productions and the police confirmed that she wasn't under the influence.

So what's -- as the guidette would say -- the big freakin' deal? Polizzi automatically lost her privilege to drive in the country, and although she wasn't arrested, she could face civil charges from the officers hurt in the incident.

This hasn't been the only speed bump for "Jersey Shore" abroad -- the Us Weekly report also notes that the entire gang has amassed over 300 euros worth of parking violations. Not to mention emotional ones, as last week Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino and Ronnie Ortiz-Magro got into a nasty brawl.
