Did we get snookered by Snooki?

After getting into a accident with a police car in Italy, Jersey Shore star Snooki sported a neck brace, then later waved it around and laughed.

“She was joking,” says an MTV spokesperson. “She sustained no injuries as a result of the traffic incident.”

The reality star, real name Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, got into the fender-bender while driving with costar Deena Nicole Cortese and a member of the show’s production team in Florence.

She crashed into the back of a traffic patrol car, which ironically, was escort that had been appointed for the TV stars’ personal safety.

There was no alcohol involved in the accident and no one was arrested, but Snooki did lose her international drivers license, MTV says.
