The ex-girlfriend of "Jersey Shore" star Ronnie Ortiz-Magro was arrested in Las Vegas after she allegedly dragged him along a road in a car after a heated argument.

Jen Harley, 31, was charged with domestic battery late Sunday night, according to TMZ.

Ortiz-Magro, 32, who is in Vegas shooting a new season of the show, was at a barbeque with Harley most of the day. They started arguing over their daughter Ariana Sky, who's 2 months old and was in the car at the time, according to US Weekly. Harley allegedly slapped Ortiz-Magro while they were driving and he demanded to be let out of the car.

Apparently he got twisted up in the seatbelt and couldn't get out. Harley allegedly started driving while he was stuck and dragged him. He got road rash and was bloodied up.

Police say they received a call around 10:22 p.m. about a vehicle with flat tires, and that a bleeding man was trying to pull a woman out of a car, according to KTNV-TV in Las Vegas.

When police got there, they saw Ortiz-Magro walking away from the vehicle.

After questioning the couple, police determined that Harley was the aggressor in the situation, and they booked her in the Clark County Detention Center. Her bail was set at $3,000. 

The on-and-off couple are no strangers to public drama.  In April,  Ortiz-Magro wrote a scathing Instagram story about Harley.


“Note to self, can’t turn a natural born HOE, into a HOUSEWIFE, if you find them in the gutter then leave them in the gutter,” he wrote. “Not all people can be saved when they are so far gone. All you can say you did ur best and keep it moving.” He added hashtags, “Facts” and “Yeahhh buddy.”

The couple was also seen in a fight on Instagram Live. They broke up in May, according to People

They fought again on June 7 when Ortiz-Magro went to Las Vegas to shoot the show. According to US Weekly, Harley showed up at the hotel and started a violent altercation that involved hotel security and police.
