NEWARK, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — “Jersey Shore” reality TV show star Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino and his brother have been hit with additional tax fraud charges.

They previously pleaded not guilty to charges that they filed bogus tax returns on nearly $9 million and claimed millions in personal expenses as business expenses.

They will be arraigned on the new charges on April 17.

Michael Sorrentino appeared on all six seasons of MTV’s “Jersey Shore.”

The cast members were known for their rowdy lifestyle that occasionally led to legal scrapes.

In July 2014, “The Situation” agreed to take anger management classes to resolve assault charges stemming from a fight with his brother at their family’s tanning salon in Middletown Township.
