SEASIDE HEIGHTS, N.J. (AP) - Another MTV “Jersey Shore” cast member has been arrested in the New Jersey town where the show is based.
Seaside Heights police say 24-year-old Ronald “Ronnie” Ortiz-Magro was taken into custody around noon Sunday for outstanding warrants from two other Garden State communities. The warrants involve unpaid parking tickets.
Police say the Bronx, N.Y., resident was released a short time later “after satisfying the conditions of the warrants.”
The arrest comes about two weeks after fellow cast member Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi was arrested on the Seaside Heights beach and charged with disorderly conduct. She was arrested after other beachgoers reported Polizzi was bothering them.
Ortiz-Magro was also arrested in September 2009 by Seaside Heights officers after a brawl on the boardwalk.
