Mike Sorrentino has no regrets about his decision to call the cops on his own brother last week.
The "Jersey Shore" star broke his silence about the incident after an Instagram user dubbed him "despicable" and asked, "What kind of dude calls the cops on his own brother."
"A responsible adult protecting his family from an estranged family member who has fall [sic] prey to mental illness from long term meth addiction," Mike alleged. "A rational adult who just put down his baby to sleep at 8pm and the doorbell was ringing obsessively at 8:30pm!!"
"The Situation," as he's known to MTV fans, noted that he has filed two harassment claims against his brother, Maximo, as recently as July.
Mike's rep told TMZ that Maximo showed up at Mike's New Jersey home on Sept. 21 while toting several gift bags, most of which were intended for Mike's newborn son, Romeo. Mike apparently watched as Maximo rang the doorbell multiple times and looked through the windows while hoping to be let in. He apparently lingered around before leaving the presents hanging from a doorknob. Mike, however, called the cops the moment he saw Maximo, and Max was then met by officers as he was leaving. Maximo was not arrested, as Mike asked cops to let Max go free.
"His behavior has been despicable for months," Mike continued on Instagram. "My whole family has him blocked not just me, even my mother and what does that say. We just want him to get help and he is refusing."
At one point, Mike and Max were very close, but they've been at odds for quite some time now.
After his fiery response to the Instagram user, Mike continued to defend his actions while again claiming his brother is in the throes of addiction.
"This is what prioritizing the health and safety of your wife and newborn baby looks like. This is what a mature responsible dad looks like. This is what tough love looks like," he wrote. "This is the ugly side of addiction. Saying no is also saying yes to yourself. This is what healthy boundaries look like. When someone chooses drugs over themselves only they can fix their problems. I have worked my a** off to be 6 years sober in December, going on 3 years in a happy healthy marriage to my college sweetheart in November and a dad to my first son who is 4 months old. Anybody can get the smoke if you try to jeopardize everything I have worked for!"
