'Jersey Shore' Star Pleads Not Guilty to Assault Charge


Ronnie Ortiz-Magro


Ronnie Ortiz-Magro claimed he is innocence when appearing on court on Monday regarding a brawl with Stephen Izzo in 2009.

MTV reality star Ronnie Ortiz-Magro has pleaded not guilty to an assault charge stemming from a 2009 fight in New Jersey. The "Jersey Shore" regular is fighting the third-degree count after an argument with Stephen Izzo in Seaside Heights, where the first season of the show was being filmed.

The allegedly violent altercation, which was caught on camera by MTV crews, landed Ortiz-Magro in Ocean County Criminal Court on Monday, February 14, when he protested his innocence.

He is next due in court on March 7 and, if convicted, he faces up to five years in prison.
