Jersey Shore’s ‘Ronnie’ Indicted On Assault Charge

TOMS RIVER, N.J. (AP) — One of the stars of MTV’s “Jersey Shore” has been indicted for an assault that allegedly happened just off camera.

A grand jury in Ocean County, N.J., said there’s evidence that Ronald “Ronnie” Ortiz-Magro committed a crime.

The indictment was issued Thursday and made public Friday.

The grand jury said the 25-year-old reality TV star knocked a man out with a punch on Sept. 4, 2009, when the show was being filmed in Seaside Heights. While the punch wasn’t shown on the show, Ortiz-Magro was seen bragging about it.

Prosectuors told The Asbury Park Press that they hoped to resolve the case without an indictment.

No lawyer is listed for Ortiz-Magro. MTV publicists did not immediately respond to requests for a comment on Saturday.

    Probably a sucker punch. A guido is a guido! Perhaps he may like to meet me somewhere. Old school fighting! Once he is convicted and hopefully he does time then he will know the true meaning of a fight.
