Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, who starred on the reality television show "Jersey Shore," was arrested Thursday in Los Angeles on domestic violence charges.
The 35-year-old allegedly violated a California law covering violence against intimate partners, the Associated Press reported. No additional details on the alleged incident were provided.
This marks the second time that Ortiz-Magro has been arrested on suspicion of domestic violence in two years. In October 2019, he was arrested following a physical altercation with his then-girlfriend Jen Harley, the mother of his daughter. He is still on probation as part of a plea deal from that case.
Ortiz-Magro and Harley have had several physical confrontations over the years.
Last year, Ortiz-Magro was ordered to stay 300 feet from Harley after an alleged fight in Los Angeles, NJ.com reported. A judge later granted Ortiz-Magro an emergency protection order after he claimed Harley tried to poke his eye out with eyeliner while he was asleep. Harley previously had been accused of throwing an ashtray at Ortiz-Magro and, in another incident, dragging him from her car.
Ortiz-Magro was released from jail after posting $100,000 bail.
