Ronnie Magro: I'm Innocent, Bro! I Was Just Protecting My Daughter!

by at .  Updated at .

Ronnie Magro and Jen Harley are the most dangerous couple in Hollywood ... or just about anywhere they go, to be perfectly honest. This point is really not up for debate anymore.

The details of recent bombshell events surrounding the gruesome twosome remain in doubt, though - especially now that Rahn's camp is apparently in damage control mode.

Days after the Jersey Shore star got arrested, his attorney has spoken out and a new report has come to light that may paint a different picture of events than initially believed.

Is Magro really a violent cocaine user who threatened his girlfriend / daughter's mother with a knife? Or might he be a responsible dad who would do anything to protect his kid?

Consider the facts and rumors and try to decide for yourself ...

1. Let's Start Here:

Let's Start Here:
Harley and Magro are simply horrible for each other. Like, beyond terrible. We don't normally like to make blunt statements like this, but we don't see how it isn't a statement of fact at this point. They became parents in April 2018 when the former gave birth to a girl named Ariana... and within weeks, Jen was trashing Ronnie as a "deadbeat dad" and Ronnie referred to Jen as a "cum dumpster."

2. And They Stayed Together After That?

And They Stayed Together After That?
God, yes. And then also after Harley got arrested for dragging Ronnie down the street with her car and after she hurled a glass ashtray at his head on New Year's Eve 2018. Yes, you heard that correctly. Jen got arrested after Ron was dragged down the friggen street by her car.

3. That's Crazy. What's the Latest?

That's Crazy. What's the Latest?
Very early on the morning of October 4, last Friday, Ronnie was arrested for allegedly attacking Jen and even for (allegedly) holding their daughter hostage in a series of events so shocking, even by their standards, that we're still reeling.

4. Uhhhh, WHAT?

Uhhhh, WHAT?
It's true. Reports state that Ronnie and Jen were renting a home in Los Angeles when they got into yet another huge argument, and not unlike Teen Mom's Amber Portwood and Andrew Glennon, it got violent despite a tiny child being present for it.

5. Jen Then Made a Run for It

Jen Then Made a Run for It
This part of the story seems to have been confirmed. There's surveillance footage, courtesy of the home next door, that does show Harley holding Ariana, seemingly in a huge panic, and making a break for it.

6. Can We See That Photo?

Can We See That Photo?
Yup. Here it is. As you can see, Harley is carrying the couple's daughter whilst high-tailing it away from Ron.

7. Holy Crap.

Holy Crap.
We know, right? Ronnie allegedly left the rented home in a rage and confronted Jen with a knife, grabbing Ariana from her and locking both himself and his child in the house. If that's even half true, it's beyond messed up.

8. The Police Were Then Called

The Police Were Then Called
But Ronnie would not let them into the house either. The cops had to eventually break down the door to get to the out-of-control Jersey Shore cast member and his child.

9. Did Ronnie Then Give Himself Up?

Did Ronnie Then Give Himself Up?
That would've been the smart thing to do, but no, of course not. He was allegedly so out of control that the police had to use a taser to subdue him. Yes, folks, a taser.

10. Jeepers! Then What?

Jeepers! Then What?
After getting tased, the police were able to control the situation and Ronnie was handcuffed to a gurney. Magro was wheeled away by the authorities and taken into custody. Bat$hit crazy stuff.

11. Here is the Official Statement:

Here is the Official Statement:
Per the LAPD spokesperson: “I can tell you that officers responded to a battery in progress in the 7200 block of Woodrow Wilson Drive at around 2:40 a.m. Suspect and victim were involved in some kind of physical altercation. When officers on location, the suspect was uncooperative. Officers had to use a taser so there was minor use of force that occurred."

12. Oh, And Ronnie Was Reportedly on Cocaine at the Time

Oh, And Ronnie Was Reportedly on Cocaine at the Time
This is what Jen told the police. We have not been able to confirm this as of this report, although it certainly wouldn't come as a surprise if these allegations are even partially accurate.

13. Ronnie Has Since Been Released on $100,000 Bond

Ronnie Has Since Been Released on $100,000 Bond
And his lawyer has released a statement, painting a very different picture of events than we've described for you earlier, that's for sure. What does Magro's camp have to say?

14. Let's Hear from the Attorney...

Let's Hear from the Attorney...
“The reporting of the alleged incident relating to Ronnie Magro yesterday is based upon pure speculation and innuendo,” lawyer Scott E. Leemon said in a statement to Us Weekly on Saturday, October 5. “We are currently conducting our own investigation and will have no further comment until that has been concluded.”

15. Ronnie is Clearly Going to Jail Forever, Right?

Ronnie is Clearly Going to Jail Forever, Right?
Not necessarily. Sources now tell celebrity news website TMZ that Ronnie vehemently denies all reports that he ran outside with a knife and/or held it to Jen.

16. What is His Side of the Story?

What is His Side of the Story?
These insiders explain that Ronnie was actually afraid Jen was going to steal Ariana. The aforementioned surveillance footage from the neighbor's camera seems to depict Harley trying to place the toddler inside the trunk of a car - at least according to Magro's camp.

17. Because She Was Hiding It from a Cocaine-Crazy Ronnie? Or Just Trying to Kidnap Ariana on Her Own?

Because She Was Hiding It from a Cocaine-Crazy Ronnie? Or Just Trying to Kidnap Ariana on Her Own?
That's the (insane and depressing) question, we guess. Ron's team clearly disputes much of what Jen has to say, but they aren't fully elaborating on his defense, either.

18. Where Do Things Go From Here?

Where Do Things Go From Here?
Will CPS get involved? Considering it's evident that Ariana is being raised in a dangerous environment, regardless of which parent(s) are ostensibly taking care of her?

19. Will MTV Fire Ronnie?

Will MTV Fire Ronnie?
The network is yet to make a statement, but this seems like a no-brainer, doesn't it? You would think, especially in light of the recent events that got Teen Mom mainstays Farrah Abraham and Jenelle Evans $hitcanned. Still, one never knows how these things play out.

20. There's Certainly a Precedent Here

There's Certainly a Precedent Here
Seriously though ... Farrah Abraham was fired by MTV for appearing in pornographic / CamGirl videos and Jenelle Evans was fired by basically being an awful mom. RAHN is skating on thin ice to say the absolute least.

21. Poor Ariana

Poor Ariana
Hours before his arrest, Ortiz-Magro and Harley attended his CBD launch party of VERGE in West Hollywood, with Ronnie saying this about his baby mama: “Honestly, even though everyone thinks we’re toxic, she really does balance me out. She really does keep me level because with her I have her and the baby, which is a family, which is what I want at the end of the day.” Seriously, that happened.

22. Come On. They Can't Get Back Together Now, Can They?!?

Come On. They Can't Get Back Together Now, Can They?!?
Tragically, we would not put it past these two. This isn't the first time they've broken up ... or the second, or third to our knowledge. Nor is it the first time a violent encounter landed one or both in trouble with the law. Typically such events are deal-breakers, but these two show no interest in making better life choices or quitting one another. Stay tuned.

23. UPDATE:

UPDATE:
Harley has been granted a restraining order against Ronnie.

24. Meaning What, Exactly?

Meaning What, Exactly?
Ronnie must stay at least 100 yards away from Jen until October 11 at minimum, at which time a hearing will be held to determine if the order remains in place.

25. Some Good News For Ronnie

Some Good News For Ronnie
The order does not require Ron to stay away from his daughter. But if there's an exchange of custody, it will have to take place under a very specific set of circumstances.

26. Not Taking Any Chances

Not Taking Any Chances
Ronnie is permitted to pick up his daughter (and any belongings he may have left at Harley's home) only with a police escort at a time when Jen is not on the premises.

27. Is He Telling the Truth?

Is He Telling the Truth?
This set of circumstances seems to indicate that Jen was unable to prove to the court that Ron presents a threat to Ariana.

28. Please Let This Be the End

Please Let This Be the End
Police have gotten involved in Ron and Jen's relationship many times in the past, but this is the first time either party has been granted a restraining order.

29. Silver Lining

Silver Lining
Needless to say, this is a horrendous situation. But if there's any bright side to be found, it's that these two might finally be forced to keep their distance from one another on a permanent basis.

30. More to Come ...

More to Come ...
We'll continue to monitor the situation and keep you updated as more information becomes available.
