MTV has already run the promo for the episode, which shows Ronnie charging a man who was allegedly harassing him and a housemate. You can see he manages a pretty clean right-handed strike on to the other guy’s head. Both end up on the ground as the struggle continues. The promo ends with a girl sitting atop the two while they scuffle pleading for someone to call the police.
Apparently the police did eventually intervene and ended up taking Ronnie in. He was booked under the name Ronnie Ortiz and was eventually charged with aggravated assault.
At this point in the season, though, I’m not surprised to see Ronnie Magro arrested, or any of them for that matter. These kids fight like it’s their job. I’ll admit they probably get taunted all of the time—something the cast members of numerous Real World seasons have complained about—but that doesn’t excuse resorting to fisticuffs.
Violence has really driven the show so far. After NYC teacher Brad Ferro slugged Snooki it really took off. It seems a teaser for another upcoming fight follows every episode.
Here’s what Ronnie had to say about the situation:
“I really don’t feel bad for the altercations that I did get into in Seaside because I’m really not a person who likes to fight. He was just being a drunk jerk, saw the camera … (and) I think he chased us down like two blocks or something like that. At that point, you’re like, ‘What am I gonna do?’”
