New Jersey cop finishes Uber Eats delivery after arresting driver, drops off food at Snooki’s house

In a wild crossover of duty and delivery, a New Jersey police officer seamlessly transitioned from apprehending an Uber Eats driver to completing the food delivery, finding himself on the front porch of a home belonging to none other than “Jersey Shore’s” Snooki.

Officers Mike Zvolensky and Alex Tredy, with the Florham Park Police Department, were out on routine patrol on Jan. 21 when the bizarre sequence of events unfolded, WABC reported Friday. They initiated a traffic stop around 8:30 p.m. that night, after a random license plate search revealed the driver had an outstanding traffic warrant out for her arrest in Denville.

Before the 60-year-old was arrested, she informed the officers she’d been in the process of making a delivery for Uber Eats when they pulled her over. Tredy spotted the McDonald’s meal inside the vehicle and, worried that a nearby resident could go hungry, decided to take matters into his own hands.

While his partner parked the suspect’s vehicle nearby, Tredy headed to a home on Summit Road to hand off the food. When he knocked on the door, the officer was greeted by Jionni LaValle, the husband of Nicole Polizzi. Polizzi, famously known as Snooki, starred on MTV reality shows including “Jersey Shore,” “Snooki & JWoww” and “Jersey Shore: Family Vacation.”

“He was definitely surprised but he understood the situation, and was very thankful of the kind act that we did,” Tredy told WABC on Saturday.

In a post following Tredy’s stint as a delivery driver, the police department apologized for the slow service.

“We think the food got cold and no, he did not get a tip,” the Facebook post reads, though Tredy later clarified that his lack of reward had little to do with LaValle and Polizzi’s generosity.

“We can’t accept tips as government officials, we do it out of the goodness of hearts,” Tredy told the news station.

While the officer does not anticipate a career change in the near future, he did note there is some overlap between the two gigs.

“I enjoy my job and obviously got into the job to help people,” he said.
