Ronnie Ortiz-Magro Tased and Arrested for Kidnapping

“Jersey Shore” star Ronnie Ortiz-Magro is facing serious charges after an altercation involving girlfriend Jen Harley and 18-month-old daughter Ariana Sky at a short-term rental in Los Angeles.

FOX 11 Los Angeles reports neighbors called the police around 2:30 a.m. Friday morning to report a disturbance, claiming a woman was outside screaming for help and claiming someone had her baby.

TMZ says Ronnie allegedly slapped and punched Jen before chasing her outside with a knife in one hand and Ariana in the other. Sources say he eventually dropped the weapon and locked himself and the child inside the house.

Ronnie was allegedly uncooperative, and police were forced to break down the door and tase him to retrieve the child.

In video from FOX 11, the reality star can be seen on a stretcher as he’s loaded into an ambulance. Jen can also be seen walking outside the house.

Ortiz-Magro was booked on felony domestic violence and kidnapping charges.

Earlier in the day, the on-again, off-again couple attended the VERGE launch party at Poppy’s in West Hollywood.

Since the arrest, Ronnie posted bail, which was set at $100,000, and was released.
