Looks like Snooki has already encountered drama in Italy – but it has nothing to do with booze or boys.

The Jersey Shore star was taken to a police station to fill out an accident report on Monday after she was involved in a fender bender with a patrol car in Florence, Italian police confirm to PEOPLE.

Deena Nicole Cortese and a member of the show's production team were also in the Fiat Multipla when Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, who was driving, crashed into the back of a traffic patrol car, sandwiching her vehicle between the highway wall and the police cruiser. No one was in serious condition, although a male and female police officer were taken to the emergency room of the local Careggi hospital to be treated for whiplash, bruises and cuts.

Polizzi and Cortese refused medial treatment, police say.

The irony? The police car Polizzi collided with was an escort appointed for their personal safety.

Snooki and Cortese were taken into the central police station of Florence to file routine paperwork – not because they had been arrested, police say.

The Jersey Shore crew is currently in Italy filming season four of the MTV series.
