Harley is said to be "desperately trying to get her daughter Ariana Sky," according to Radar.

Sources told the outlet that Harley was rushing to get to her and take her back home to Las Vegas and "away from the scary situation," as the 35-year-old had visitation with their daughter in Los Angeles. After his arrest, the sources said Ortiz-Magro's brother was watching Ariana Sky.

"We have just learned of the new allegations against Ronnie and need some additional time to further investigate. As such, we will not be making any other statements at this time," Ortiz-Magro's lawyer, Scott Leemon, said in a statement.

Ortiz-Magro was released after posting a $100,000 bail, according to TMZ. It is not yet clear if this arrest could trigger a violation of his probation order. 

Ortiz-Magro was reportedly on probation from a previous arrest. He was booked in October 2019 after he allegedly assaulted Harley in an Airbnb in L.A. and was ordered 36 months probation after he evaded jail time thanks to a plea deal.

He was also ordered to pay $20,000 to the Jewish Family Services of L.A. and do 52 weeks of domestic violence treatment in Nevada but had reportedly started taking the classes three months before his probation "on his own free will, not because he was ordered," Us Weekly reported at the time.

Ortiz-Magro was accused of threatening to kill Harley and allegedly slapping and punching her in the incident. He later reportedly pleaded not guilty to charges of domestic violence, child endangerment, brandishing a weapon, criminal threats, false imprisonment and two counts of resisting arrest. 

Harley was reportedly given a brief protective order at the time.
