Edmonton Sun - - SHOWBIZ -

Jer­sey Shore star Ron­nie Or­tiz-ma­gro has been ar­rested for do­mes­tic abuse. ac­cord­ing to tmz.com, the star was taken into po­lice cus­tody on Fri­day morn­ing af­ter al­legedly hit­ting his girl­friend Jen Har­ley and chas­ing her with a knife, forc­ing cops to tase him.

the two re­port­edly got into a heated ar­gu­ment around 2:30 am at an airbnb in Los an­ge­les. the dis­agree­ment ap­par­ently be­came phys­i­cal,

with ron­nie al­legedly slap­ping and punch­ing his part­ner, who ran out of the house.

author­i­ties re­port­edly re­ceived mul­ti­ple calls, claim­ing ron­nie was chas­ing Jen down the street with a knife, yelling for her to get back inside the house, while also hold­ing their 18-mon­thold daugh­ter ari­ana in his other arm.

He al­legedly then dropped the knife and locked him­self and ari­ana in the house, be­fore of­fi­cers ar­rived and broke down the door. cops were forced to tase the star as he re­fused to leave the prop­erty will­ingly.

Jen and ari­ana were both checked out, with the mother-of-one re­port­edly show­ing mul­ti­ple marks on her face.

back in July, Jen was cleared of do­mes­tic bat­tery af­ter al­legedly throw­ing an ash­tray at ron­nie’s head on New year’s eve. She de­nied the claims, and in­stead ac­cused him of trash­ing her home.
