On Thursday, Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) sources told Fox News that the “Jersey Shore” star was taken into custody at 11:50 a.m. local time on the California penal code offense of intimate partner violence with injuries and a prior incident.
Now the star has spoken out on social media.
“I am grateful for all of my real friends!” he began in a written message on his Instagram Story on Monday. “Thank you for being by myself the last few weeks.”
He said that he finds “lessons” in his experiences and that troubling times are a “weeding process,” because “you learn who really cares about you when your [sic] down and out and than [sic] you see who doesn’t.”
