Ronnie Ortiz-Magro evades felony charge for domestic violence incident in LA

Ronnie Ortiz-Magro evades felony charge for domestic violence incident in LA

Ronnie Ortiz-Magro has evaded a felony charge in connection with his latest domestic violence arrest last month in Los Angeles involving his girlfriend Saffire Matos.

Police sources told TMZ that the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office did not have sufficient evidence to charge the Jersey Shore personality, 35, in the April 22 incident with his girlfriend, 30.

The case involving the Bronx-born reality star will be forwarded to the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office, which can only charge him with a misdemeanor, sources told the site.

The latest: Jersey Shore personality Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, 35, has evaded a felony charge in connection with his latest domestic violence arrest last month in Los Angeles involving his girlfriend Saffire Matos, 30 

‘If this reporting is true, as we said from the beginning, initial reports and unreviewed charges are often and; in Ronnie’s case, wrong,’ Magro’s lawyer Scott Leemon told TMZ. ‘We are glad the DA’s office made this decision not to charge a felony. We will await a decision from the County Attorney’s office.’

The latest case could impact Ortiz-Magro’s ongoing probation in a separate domestic violence case he was involved with October 4, 2019 involving his ex-girlfriend Jen Harley, 32, with whom he shares daughter Ariana Sky, three.

In that case, the MTV personality made a plea deal, entering a guilty plea to seven misdemeanors in the incident, including domestic battery and resisting arrest.

In the incident last month, Saffire contacted authorities and said that Ortiz-Magro had gotten physical with her following an argument, according to the outlet.

Police, citing injuries on Matos, took Ortiz-Magro into custody on suspicion of felony domestic violence.

Matos later took to Instagram Stories with a statement clarifying her take on the incident, and seemingly solidarity with Ortiz-Magro.

‘Ronnie and I are fine there is a lot misleading information floating around out there,’ she said. ‘With anybody who reached out with concern I appreciate it with all my heart, but everything that’s being portrayed out there are not facts.

‘I don’t think it’s fair that people are using false accusations to gain attention. Please leave Ron and I alone. You don’t know what someone is going through at the end of the day. Don’t believe everything you hear or read online.’

In his statement, Ortiz-Magro thanked his ‘real friends’ for standing by him amid the troubled times.

‘Thank you for being by myself the last few [weeks],’ he said. ‘I take all experiences as lessons. You learn who really cares about you when [you’re] down and out and [then] you see who doesn’t! But I guess they call it the weeding process. Thank you to my real friends who haven’t left my side and haven’t betrayed me!’
