Ronnie Magro Attacks Jen Harley With a Knife, Gets Arrested and Tased By Cops

by at .

Strolling through Beverly Hills on Thursday, Ronnie Magro and Jen Harley assured a TMZ cameraman that all was well in their relationship, and they'd finally put the drama behind them.

Within 12 hours, however, Ronnie was in police custody following a violent altercation with Harley.

According to TMZ, cops arrived on the scene in response to several 911 calls indicating that Jen was "in distress."

Fearing that the couple's 1-year-old daughter, Ariana, might be in danger, police broke down the door with a battering ram.

And that's when the situation really got out of hand.
