Was Jersey Shore’s Angelina Viciously Attacked in a Mall?

Did Angelina Pivarnick get a taste of her own medicine?

The Jersey Shore hellion—who reportedly got a little punchy with her driver earlier this month—claims that she herself was brutally attacked by a “rowdy group” of young people while shopping at the Staten Island Mall on Friday.

Sources close to the reality TV star tell TMZ that Pivarnick was inside a Hot Topic store when the incident occurred. According to the sources, Angelina was attacked from behind and struck in the back of the head.

Though Pivarnick—who reportedly has a welt on her head as a result of the fracas—immediately reported the incident to police and is currently weighing her legal options, security personnel for the Staten Island Mall offer a much less violent version of the incident, claiming that a few people were taking Pivarnick’s picture and, in the ensuing chaos, someone accidentally smacked her face.

Bad break, Angelina, but sometimes you have to roll with the punches. Just ask your castmate Snooki.
