'Jersey Shore' star Sorrentino hit with tax counts

The Associated Press

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) Former "Jersey Shore" reality series star Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino is facing several federal tax charges.

Sorrentino and his brother, Marc, are named in a seven-count indictment released Wednesday.

Prosecutors allege the brothers failed to pay all taxes owed on nearly $9 million earned over the last four years.

The indictment includes counts of conspiracy, filing false tax returns and failing to file.

The cast of the MTV reality show were known for their rowdy lifestyle. In July, Mike Sorrentino agreed to take anger management classes to resolve assault charges stemming from a July 15 fight with his brother at their family's tanning salon.

Attorneys for the brothers didn't immediately return messages. The brothers were to appear in court in Newark later Wednesday.
