Jersey Shore's Sammi "Sweatheart" To Face Assault Charges After South Beach Club Brawl

You can take the girl out of Jersey, but you can't take the Jersey out of the girl. Jersey Shore castmate Sammi "Sweatheart" Giancola will be facing criminal assault charges and a civil lawsuit after she got into a brawl at a South Beach club this weekend 24-year-old Kristen DeMinco, according to NBCMiami.

The brawl took place this Saturday at Club Dream on South Beach. DeMinco claims she was assaulted and took two of Sweetheart's sweet-fists to the face. Afterward, the cast got into yet another altercation and were then thrown out.

This doesn't seem to be some stunt for the cameras, and the State Attorney's Office is involved. This is serious.

Miami-Dade State Attorney's Office will hold a press conference this afternoon at 2:30 to discuss the charges. DeMinco will also announce a civil lawsuit against 22-year-old Giancola.

"They will also discuss...the disturbing trend of Jersey Shore stars getting into physical altercations for increased television ratings," says a statement from the State Attorney's Office.

Previously, castmember Snooki got into a drink throwing and slap fight with a guy at an Ocean Drive bar, and also allegedly got into another physical fight, with JWWoW at her side, at an unnamed South Beach club last weekend.
