How ecstatic will the denizens of Seaside Heights, N.J., be when MTV closes the book on Jersey Shore? It's been a three-year-old melee in that town.

The latest: Ronnie Ortiz-Magro is on the receiving end of a private citizen's complaint, brought by a man who claims Ron roughed him up in a bar.

Not sure about you, but our jaws are on the floor.

Ron Ortiz-Magro

Justin Viterito accused the 26-year-old Ortiz-Magro of simple assault that resulted from a brawl at the Seaside nightclub Bamboo Bar on June 9.

According to Viterito, a friend of his "was shoved by a cast member from the show" and as he moved to help, Viterito was "struck" by the star.

The complaint also named as defendants MTV and parent company Viacom in court papers. He alleges Ron-Ron belted him above the left eye.

Neither man's attorney was available for comment, nor was the cable network. But Ortiz-Magro must appear at a court hearing set for July 3.

The melee affected Ronnie's co-star Jenni "JWoww" Farley, who reportedly ended up sustaining a foot injury and was on crutches last week.

Also this month, Deena Cortese was arrested on a disorderly conduct charge and someone leaked these pre-pregnancy pics of Snooki nude.

Apparently Jersey Shore drama extends beyond international borders.

Ronnie and The Situation got into a major fist fight with each other last night in Italy, according to TMZ, and based on the post-brawl images, well...

Let's just say someone won and someone lost. And let's just say Sitch was not the winner. Anyone surprised after he's antagonized Ron for years?!

  • Italia

The two arrived separately back to their apartment hours ago, with The Situation showing some red marks across his face and in particular around his left eye.

Ronnie's knuckles were torn up and bleeding.

Details around the fight are still unclear but reports say, astonishingly, that it all began with a blowout argument between Ronnie Magro and Sammi Giancola.

Somehow we're guessing Frank Sorrentino may be quietly smiling after reading this report. Dude had it coming. More details and bloody knuckles to follow ...

Will Ronnie Magro be allowed to film Jersey Shore's fourth season in Italy despite the pending litigation against him? His lawyer is trying to make it happen.

Joseph A. Raia told a judge that the reality star will submit an application for a pretrial intervention program in connection with a pending assault charge.

The charge is in connection with an 18-month-old incident in which Ron cold cocked Stephen Izzo with one punch after an exchange at a Seaside Heights.

The incident was broadcast in an episode titled, fittingly, "One Shot." The court application would allow Ronnie to tape the show's fourth season in Italy.

While not admitting guilt, the applicant (Ron-Ron) just has to stay out of trouble for a defined time period (at least a year) to avoid a criminal record.

Magro's next court date is June 6. It's unknown if his bid will be accepted, but hard to see him being denied the right to film abroad for a few weeks.

Jersey Shore star Ronnie Ortiz (also known as Ronnie Ortiz-Magro and Ronnie Magro) has been formally indicted by New Jersey grand jury on an assault charge.

The legal trouble for Ron stems from an episode from the MTV reality series. The title of the episode during with he cold-cocked Stephen Izzo? "One Shot."

Ortiz faces up to five years in state prison for third-degree assault.

DOUCHE-TASTIC: And this was before his new tattoo!

The meathead “purposely or knowingly caused significant bodily injury to Stephen Izzo by striking in the face with a closed fist," the indictment reads.

Izzo is already suing Ortiz, MTV, Jersey Shore producers and the nightclub over the assault, which caused him to lose consciousness. Pretty bad stuff.

Not bad enough for the show to tone down the violence, of course. If these clips from Jersey Shore Season 3 are any indication, it's gonna be a wild winter.
