Ronnie Ortiz-Magro’s ex-girlfriend Jen Harley drove hundreds of miles to scoop up her daughter Ariana who was with her father when he was arrested for allegedly assaulting his new girl.
Sources tell Radar, after becoming aware of the Jersey Shore star’s arrest, Harley immediately jumped into her car to drive from Las Vegas to Los Angeles.
We’re told Harley was “desperate” to pick up her daughter Ariana, who Ortiz-Magro had custody of in L.A.
Ariana was in her father’s custody when the arrest drama went down. Sources say Harley was able to get to the brother of Ortiz-Magro, who was watching the kid while her dad was locked up. Sources say the two decided to head back to Vegas, where Harley lives. Ortiz-Magro's ex is reportedly thankful she was able to get Ariana away from a “scary situation.”
As Radar previously reported, the reality star is in serious trouble after getting arrested again for domestic violence.
The reality star was taken into custody on serious charges. A source told Radar, “The incident involved Ortiz-Magro and an “intimate partner. The woman claimed to have injuries as a result of Ronnie.” He was released hours later on a $100,000 bond.
Ronnie’s lawyer, Scott Leemon, said, "We have just learned of the new allegations against Ronnie and need some additional time to further investigate. As such, we will not be making any other statements at this time.”
The new arrest could mean a world of trouble for the MTV star. He is currently on probation stemming from his 2019 arrest involving Harley. In that incident, Ortiz-Magro was arrested after he allegedly chased his ex around a rental home while holding their daughter in his arms. The Jersey Shore star allegedly was abusing drugs before the meltdown. At one point, Ortiz-Magro locked himself in a bathroom with his daughter. Police were forced to break down the door out of fear for Ariana's safety.
Ortiz-Magro was able to avoid jail time in the case. Instead, a judge ordered him to complete 3 years' probation. The new arrest could trigger a probation violation and send him back to jail.
