Angelina Pivarnick Is In Legal Trouble Following Weekend Incident


The reality TV star is embroiled in legal troubles following an incident over the weekend. Pivarnick is confronting a range of charges in New Jersey, including simple assault, criminal mischief, obstructing the administration of law, and resisting arrest. 

These charges stem from a municipal summons issued on Sunday. Pivarnick’s attorney argues that the situation has been exaggerated, echoing police statements that the details of the incident at the 37-year-old’s home remain confidential.

The summons obtained by TMZ also provided little additional information, citing confidentiality for the lack of further details. Despite the limited information, Pivarnick will face these charges, with a court date set for July.

Details Remain Elusive Amid Angelina Pivarnick’s Charges

Attempts to uncover the specifics of the incident involving Pivarnick were reportedly met with silence from the Freehold Township Police. 

TMZ noted that the authorities cited legal exemptions related to domestic violence cases and ongoing criminal investigations as reasons for withholding information. However, James Leonard, Pivarnick’s attorney, provided some insight, stating:

“This is nothing more than a very minor incident that was exacerbated by an adverse reaction to prescribed over-the-counter medication. We look forward to resolving this matter favorably and putting it behind us. Angelina is home resting and has no further comment at this time.”

Leonard further noted that the municipal summons implied the incident is not particularly severe, though he declined to provide additional details.

The Reality Star Previously Called The Cops After An Alleged Domestic Dispute 

While there is no evidence that Pivarnick’s fiancé, Vinny Tortorella, was involved in her recent legal troubles, their tumultuous past adds complexity to the situation. 

The Blast shared last August that Pivarnick reportedly called the police on Tortorella just months after their engagement, which was prominently featured on “Jersey Shore: Family Vacation.” 

The police report obtained by Page Six stated that Pivarnick contacted 911 to report an alleged domestic violence incident. But the TV personality decided against pressing charges when authorities arrived. This resulted in a “criminal investigatory record” being created.

Angelina Pivarnick’s Rollercoaster Divorce To Engagement

Chris Larangeira and Angelina Pivarnick at WE TV ''BRIDEZILLAS'' season 12 celebration

Before Angelina Pivarnick and Vinny Tortorella’s relationship hit turbulent waters, their love story had a dramatic beginning. Tortorella proposed to Pivarnick at a party she hosted to celebrate the finalization of her divorce from Chris Larangeira. 

The Blast’s March 2022 report noted that Pivarnick and Larangeira filed for divorce after just over two years of marriage. 

Court documents filed in New Jersey revealed that Larangeira initiated the divorce on January 22, 2022. Around the same time, Pivarnick announced a social media hiatus to focus on her family.

Interestingly, this new divorce filing came less than a year after Pivarnick had filed her own documents to end their marriage. That initial case was dismissed for “lack of prosecution without prejudice” after neither party pursued it further.
