AceShowbiz - Ronnie Ortiz-Magro's ex Jen Harley has landed in trouble with the law. The former "Jersey Shore" star was reportedly arrested in Las Vegas on an assault with a deadly weapon and domestic battery.
The 34-year-old was taken into custody at the Clark County Detention Center on Saturday, June 19, as per TMZ report. Her bond was set at $5,000 and she is set to attend a court hearing scheduled for Sunday, June 20.
Details of the alleged domestic violence are currently unavailable. Though the authorities did not identify the alleged victim, they informed the publication that the reality star owns a local home with the person.
This wasn't the first time Jen was arrested. In June 2018, she was also booked for domestic battery after she was accused of dragging Ronnie with her car during a fight. The Clark County District Attorney eventually decided not to press charges, saying there was "insufficient evidence."
As for Ronnie, he also had a recent run-in with the law. In April this year, he was arrested for domestic violence in Los Angeles. The MTV personality, who posted a $100,000 bond in the incident, was not charged.
His arrest came in the midst of him serving 36 months of probation as part of a plea deal he took in May 2020 for a previous domestic violence case involving Jen. Additionally, he still has a probation hearing scheduled for June 29.
"We are very happy that after further investigation both the L.A. County District Attorney's office and the L.A. City Attorney's office determined that criminal charges were not warranted against Ronnie related to the incident that occurred in April," Scott E. Leemon and Leonard Levine told in a statement on May 13. "We will review the alleged violation of probation claim and deal with it accordingly."
After his arrest, a source informed the outlet about Jen's reaction, "Jen has been concerned about his behavior in front of Ariana and it's been an issue she's been worried about." The insider added, "She knows he always has this pattern and that he does not change."
For now, the former couple has since moved on with new partners. Jen reportedly has been seeing a man named Joe for six months, while Ronnie has been dating Saffire Matos since 2020.
