The former Jersey Shore star, 32, was arrested last month after getting into a physical altercation with his sibling in the family's tanning salon over how the Boca Tanning Club's business was being run.

During the dispute, The Situation accused Frank of "not running the store correctly, so I had to go in there and clean house—in more ways than one." He ended up in jail with a bruised eye. Following his arrest, Sorrentino expressed remorse in an interview with the Star Ledger about how he handled the disagreement.

"I didn't mean to go in there so aggressively," he told the paper in early July, adding that the Sorrentino clan has since moved past the incident. "It was a simple situation that was blown out of proportion and the family and I will handle it as it comes and move on from that," he added at the salon's second store opening.

The Situation was joined Monday by brother Frank and their younger sister Melissa in a Middletown, N.J., municipal court. As the trio walked out of the courthouse together, Sorrentino, reflecting on having to undergo a few months of treatment, told TMZ: "I don't know if I'm excited, but if that's what's needed… maybe it will help me out."
