Ronnie Magro Arrested in Boardwalk Dust-up

January 6, 2010

The latest wild news out of the Jersey Shore kids is a kerfuffle on the boardwalk that ended with Ronnie Magro arrested. Get the story here, along with photos and video.


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?’”

    You apparantly didn’t watch the episode. They really do try to avoid conflicts. But, when you have a douche-bag that runs TWO BLOCKS to catch up to one of the male housemates walking ALONE with another female housemate, then what do you expect. Second, Ronnie certainly didn’t charge “the victim.” He simply stated, if you want to fight then “come at me” and put his hands up. Furthermore, the gall of the retard’s girlfriend to intervene by putting herself in a man’s position?!… and hitting Ronnie in the face?! Wow.

    Why isn’t anyone backing Ronnie up? It’s funny, I’m from Jersey and everyone complains about how the cast and the show makes the state look bad. But, it seems to me that people in NJ are doing a pretty good job making themselves look bad by volleying for the camera so hard, they provoke altercations with the cast members both male and female alike. I agree with Claire. The bald punk got what he deserved.
