Jersey Shore star Ronnie Ortiz-Magro has been arrested after an alleged domestic violence assault.

The 35-year-old was arrested on Thursday morning in Los Angeles on suspicion of intimate partner violence with injuries and with priors.

According to an LAPD spokesperson, the reality star was taken to Van Nuys jail before being released that night on $100,000 (£72,000) bail.

Ronnie’s ex-girlfriend Jen Harley, with whom he shares a three-year-old daughter called Ariana, was not involved in the incident.

Lawyers for Ronnie told TMZ: ‘We have just learned of the new allegations against Ronnie and need some additional time to further investigate. As such, we will not be making any other statements at this time.’

Ronnie is currently on probation as part of a plea deal in a previous domestic violence case involving Harley.

In May 2020, he pleaded no contest to one count of domestic battery and one count of resisting arrest, and was ordered to 36 months probation, 30 days of community service, and to donate $20,000 (£14,000) to a women’s shelter. 

It can be a violation on probation to be arrested while still on probation, and Ronnie could face revocation proceedings.

Ronnie was part of the original cast of Jersey Shore, alongside Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi, Jennifer ‘JWoww’ Farley, Pauly D, Vinny Guadagnino, Sammi Giancola, Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino and Angelina Pivarnick, when the show premiered on MTV in 2009.

One of his major storylines was his volatile relationship with castmate Sammi, with the couple often engaging in rows in the house.

Most recently, Ronnie has appeared on Jersey Shore: Family Vacation, with the last episode of season four airing in February.
