Another Jersey Shore cast member has been arrested! Ronnie Ortiz-Magro was reportedly taken into custody Sunday morning for unpaid parking tickets.
A statement from Seaside Heights Police Department states to OK!, “On August 15, 2010 Ronald Ortiz was placed under arrest for outstanding warrants from two separate jurisdictions … Mr. Ortiz was transported to the Seaside Heights Police Department where he was processed and later released after satisfying the conditions of these warrants.”
He may have already been released, but Ronnie’s arrest came with plenty of drama!
“This undercover Jeep pulled up at the house and they literally stormed the house and grabbed Ronnie,” an eyewitness tells OK!.
“I thought it was a drug bust or something. At first I thought it was a scripted thing, but the cameras weren’t even ready,” the witness explains. “They had no idea what was going on. Apparently it was all over two unpaid parking tickets or something.”
“The producers were screaming at each other because they didn’t get it on camera. They missed him being led out of the house,” the eyewitness tells OK!. “I heard one of them say, ‘Well make sure you get him on the phone talking to his mom about it!’”
It was drama at the Jersey Shore house, but only temporarily. Ronnie has apparently already moved on from the incident.
“He was at the police station for about an hour and then he came back to the house and went to do his laundry with Pauly D.”
