Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, known for being on the show "Jersey Shore," was arrested for felony domestic violence last Thursday. He is currently on probation following a plea deal on a previous case involving domestic violence.


Ronnie Ortiz-Magro escaped jail time last year after a domestic violence case that involved Jenn Harley, his ex-girlfriend, and the mother of his child. This time though, he may not be as lucky as he was arrested for yet another domestic violence incident. 

A suspected intimate partner was found with injuries which led to the arrest of the 35-year-old star. He was taken to jail and released on the same day after posting bail worth $100,000. He left Van Nuys jail in a white Mercedes-Benz that picked him up.

Previously, he was put on probation for his case against Harley. Ortiz-Magro pled no contest to one count of resisting arrest and one count of domestic battery.

On top of the 36-month probation, he got 30 days of community service and was asked to donate $20,000 to a shelter for battered women in Los Angeles. At the time of the latest incident, the reality star had custody of his 3-year-old daughter, Ariana, whom he shares with Harley. 


His daughter Ariana is now reunited with her mother.  According to Harley, the 3-year-old looked visibly shaken and needed comfort when they first saw each other. 

According to his lawyer Scott Leemon, the case involving Ortiz-Magro is currently being investigated. They refused to speak about the situation as the investigation is currently ongoing. He said:

"We have just learned of the new allegations against Ronnie and need some additional time to further investigate."


This month, another personality was arrested, this time on charges of first-degree murder and attempted first-degree murder after a shooting incident in Florida. NFL player Travis Rudolph was arrested after a fatal shooting incident, where he opened fire on a car carrying four passengers.

The 25-year-old is currently being held without bond. He signed with the New York Giants as a free agent before joining the Miami Dolphins practice squad in 2018. He joined the Canadian Football league in December 2019. 

He was with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, and following the charges against him, the team confirmed that Rudolph had already been released. Officials are currently investigating whether or not the shooting had something to do with his father's death to an accidental shooting incident.
