VIDEO: How to get Snooki's pouf!
Snooki, who faces a $250 to $1,000 fine but no more jail time, insists, "I'm a good person. I'm not a criminal, and I will never go back there."
"I don't know why people are taking it so seriously," she went on. "I had a couple cocktails and they just put me in a drunk tank to sober me up. I was on the beach. It happens to the best of us, and I'm not planning on going back to jail ever again. I was a public nuisance -- big deal!"

Her few hours of incarceration weren't exactly pleasant, the 22-year-old says.
"You can't even contain me," Snooki jokes. "When I was in there, I was like, 'Can I come out? I can't breathe!' Not a fun place. I will never go back."
