Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, aka the Italian King Kong, might avoid jail time for his 2009 assault for knocking a man unconscious. HULK SMASH!
Ortiz-Magro applied for a pretrial intervention program, which would allow him to avoid serving jail time if he completes court-ordered stipulations, according to the Asbury Park Press.
Forget Italy, jail would be the perfect location for shooting the next season of Jersey Shore! I can just see the gang getting sloppy off of toilet wine and then attempting to set up a stripper pole in the jail cell before some old, angry convict shanks them all.
If granted this program, Ronnie will be able to join the rest of the Jersey Shore herd and moo his way to Italy for shooting. He will return to court on June 6 to learn whether his requested has been granted.
Filming begins in April, so either way, I guess we’ll at least have a couple of months of his bed throwing and shirt ripping to look forward to.
If his request is approved, Ortiz-Magro will have to stay out of legal trouble for a year, but will not have a criminal record of the incident.
