Disturbing new footage of Ronnie Ortiz-Magro shows the Jersey Shore star appearing completely disoriented after he was taken into custody for allegedly striking Jen Harley, RadarOnline.com can report.
In the terrifying footage above, obtained by Fox 11 Los Angeles, which broke the story, the 33-year-old MTV star’s eyes remain wide open as officers roll his stretcher into an ambulance.
The Los Angeles Police Department confirmed to Radar on Thursday that cops responded to a residence at around 2:40 a.m. and witnessed Ortiz-Magro and Harley involved “in some kind of physical altercation.”
When officers arrived at the scene, the reality star was “uncooperative.” Police then tased Ortiz-Magro before placing him into handcuffs.
“Officers had to use a taser, so a minor use of force occurred,” police confirmed.
In the shocking video above, Ortiz-Magro kept his mouth closed and does not say a word as he appeared motionless. The reality star was shirtless and appeared to be wearing only a white blanket which partially covered his torso and legs.
Three fire department officials on scene lifted Ortiz-Magro’s stretcher into an ambulance.
The on-scene footage also showed Harley in distress nearby. Cameras caught Ariana’s mom dressed in a black t-shirt and sweatpants standing outside of the property near garbage cans. She attempted to hide her face from the cameras. Seconds later, Harley was spotted walking away from the scene carrying a red Gatorade.
Meanwhile, a male officer at the scene used a flashlight to peer at the garbage cans Harley was standing near. The officer located what appeared to be a piece of jewelry made of diamonds. He picked up the item off of the ground and walked back inside towards the home.
As of Friday morning, the LAPD confirmed Ortiz-Magro had yet to be processed in jail. However, the police department’s spokesperson confirmed to Radar that he was taken into custody for a felony charge of domestic violence.
