MIDDLETOWN, N.J. -- Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino has been arrested and charged with simple assault at the Boca Tanning Club he owns with his family here.

Police got a 911 emergency call at 2:10 p.m. Tuesday and arrested Sorrentino, said Detective Lt. Steve Dollinger.

Sorrentino was released after posting $500 bail. No court date has been set, Dollinger said.

Dollinger declined to identify who Sorrentino was fighting. However, TMZ reported that the fight was between Sorrentino and his brother, Frank.

Only minor injuries were reported, Dollinger said.

Earlier this month, a report by the gossip site TMZ claimed four employees of the former Jersey Shore reality TV star's salon filed a police report saying their paychecks had bounced. According to TMZ, Sorrentino said it was an innocent error caused when the store changed payroll companies, and that each employee, owed between $100 and $200 each, was repaid.

Sorrentino and members of his family, including mom Linda, sister Melissa, and brothers Frank and Marc, recently filmed episodes of The Sorretinos reality show at the salon. The series is set debut July 15 on TVGN, formerly the TV Guide Network.

The show is to focus on Michael Sorrentino's plight to deal with his fame and his continued recovery from addiction to pain killers, according to TVGN.

Michael Sorrentino spent a portion of 2012 in rehab. A spokesperson for the family declined to comment on Tuesday's arrest.

"My recovery has been in the public eye, my life is in the public eye, and I'm OK with that," said Sorrentino previously to the Asbury Park (N.J.) Press. "I try to be the best person I can be on a daily basis, make the best decisions."
