‘Jersey Shore’ Star, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro Reportedly Won’t Be Charged for Felony Domestic Violence
They also have a past of allegedly fighting, which has led to authorities getting involved. The parents have reportedly split up after Ortiz-Magro has been accused of domestic violence by Harley. Find out what charges have been dropped from the incident and the charge he could still be facing from that night.
Ronnie Ortiz-Magro was arrested and reportedly was tased
The reality star was accused of locking himself and his daughter, Ariana in an Airbnb he was renting with Harley. Harley also claimed he did coke, chased her with a knife, then dropped it before locking himself in, according to TMZ.
The police reportedly tased him. Ortiz-Magro was originally facing a kidnapping and felony domestic violence charge. However, the kidnapping charge was dropped and now another charge has been dropped.
He wrote a message about outgrowing people
Ortiz-Magro hasn’t talked about the incident. However, he did write a message in his Instagram story after it.
“Outgrowing people is natural. Never bring yourself down, find people on your level” according to Us Weekly. Ortiz-Magro then wrote, “Protect your peace from those who are committed to misunderstanding you.”
A source told Entertainment Tonight that his relationship with Harley is over again. “They are over for good,” a source said and that the reality star is “100% committed to doing what’s best for his daughter and is cooperating with law enforcement and the legal teams involved.”
The insider added, “Ronnie’s only concern right now is his daughter and he will do anything necessary to ensure she is taken care [of].”
This is after the father was ordered to stay 100 yards away from Harley through an emergency protective order. This order was lifted on Oct. 11 after Harley reportedly didn’t appear in court.
He reportedly won’t be charged for felony domestic violence
There was another charge that has reportedly been dropped. According to Entertainment Tonight, he won’t be facing a felony charge but the City Attorney’s office confirmed he will be facing a misdemeanor domestic violence charge.
This means he could be sentenced up to a year in jail if found guilty. Ortiz-Magro hasn’t made a statement on the matter since his lawyer, Scott E. Leemon gave one after his arrest.
“The reporting of the alleged incident relating to Ronnie Magro yesterday is based upon pure speculation and innuendo,” Leemon told Entertainment Tonight. “We are currently conducting our own investigation and will have no further comment until that has been concluded.”
The father has continued to spend time with his daughter after the alleged incident. He went to a pumpkin patch with her on Oct. 20 and shared pictures of the adventure on Instagram, according to US Weekly.
This was all after the former couple reunited and Ortiz-Magro talked about going to rehab. They both talked about their relationship changing on the show after he finished his stay.
