Classes on anger

The Situation will be getting lessons in anger management.

Former “Jersey Shore” star Michael Sorrentino, better known as The Situation, has agreed to take the classes as part of a deal to resolve simple assault charges he faced following a July 15 fight with his brother at their family’s tanning salon in Middletown Township.

A municipal court judge Monday accepted the deal and adjourned the matter for three months. If Sorrentino successfully completes the counseling program, the charge against him could be downgraded.

Sorrentino’s family – including his brother – attended the court hearing. The family owned Boca Tanning Club is the setting for a new reality show about them.
