SEASIDE HEIGHTS, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — Note to the cast of MTV’s “Jersey Shore“: You’ve got competition.

New Jersey Gov. Christie got into a heated verbal battle with a passerby on the Seaside Heights boardwalk Thursday night.

Christie was with his family and had just ordered an ice cream cone, according to TMZ, when a bystander apparently tossed off some comments about the governor’s education policy.

The verbal battle that ensued was caught on video that was posted online by TMZ.

“You’re a real big shot, you’re a real big shot shooting your mouth off,” Christie shouted.

“Just take care of the teachers,” the man retorted.

Christie walks towards the man and warns him to “keep walking away.”

A member of Christie’s party eventually diffused the situation by escorting him away in the opposite direction.

The incident comes just days after Christie called a reporter “stupid” and an “idiot” for straying off topic at a news conference.
