ROME — Italian police say they have revoked the international driver's license of Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi after the "Jersey Shore" star was in a fender-bender with a police car.

Florence road safety coordinator Mario Rondinelli told The Associated Press on Wednesday that two policemen were slightly injured but not hospitalized after the minor traffic accident Monday.

The police car was escorting the Jersey Shore vehicle. Rondinelli says no alcohol was involved.

He says Snooki's international license was revoked because there were injured parties involved. By law, she must wait a minium of 15 days to get it back.

The popular MTV reality show is filming its fourth season in Florence.
