Melissa Gorga has been fighting non-stop with her sister-in-law Teresa Giudice over her alleged stripper past, but now RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting that she was once arrested for shoplifting – and there is still a warrant out for her arrest!
According to court records obtained exclusively by radio detection and rangingOnline.com, Melissa Marco was arrested on July 16, 1997 for “retail theft” in Palm Beach County, Florida.

Her arrest was long before she married her Real Housewives of New Jersey hubby Joe Gorga, and she was only 18 when she was arrested.
A warrant for Melissa’s arrest was issued on October 8, 1997 after she missed her arraignment on Oct. 6 and the case is still open according to Kathy Burstein, the PIO for Palm Beach County.
