Assault Claim Filed Against "Jersey Shore's" Ortiz

Citizen files complaint in wake of fight at Bamboo Bar last weekend

SEASIDE HEIGHTS, NJ -- Another member of MTV's "Jersey Shore" cast is in trouble.

Ronald Ortiz Margo, known as "Ronnie," is the subject of a simple assault complaint filed by a private citizen, according to Seaside Heights Detective Steve Korman.

Justin Viterito, age and hometown not given, filed the complaint on Wednesday, June 13, Korman said, in the wake of a fight at Bamboo Bar that occurred on Saturday, June 9.

The assault claim comes just days after another cast member, of New Egypt, was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct after dancing in the middle of a street and stopping traffic.

@Anthony....new Egypt, hazlet and manalapan are locals?
Donna T June 18, 2012 at 02:18 AM
I agree Jan, Not that I am taking their side, but I'm sure that the cast members cannot even go anywhere and sit quietly amongst themselves without some sort of confrontation. I'm sure it is pretty difficult to just sit their if someone is insulting you with comments, etc. But you know what, it also applies to the all the people in the spotlight, movie stars, musicians, etc... it comes with the territory...they wanted fame and fortune. I am happy I am not famous, although I wouldn't mind a fortune...lol

The majority of these morons are not from New Jersey. None are locals, local to me would be someone from at least Ocean County, or at least grew up in Ocean County on or near the beach, bay or water. Also these idiots are also many different nationalities. You have Jaywow Farley whom is Irish, Ronnie is Puerto Rican, You had Angilina Pavilic who was a Russisn Jew, we all know Sniikoe is Chileian and so on.We think we locals are laughing at them. The sad truth is they are laughing all the way to the bank.

If anyone on here had the opportunity to make that kind of money doing what they do would do it in a second

Ba da Bing. I live in Ocean County for over 40 years. I Have NEVER EVER watched that show. The commercials and news on them alone tell me its pure crap.

Coney Island crap hole is where these low lifes should be filming.

Maybe they can get President Obama to go on the show. He would fit right in.

They may be laughing all the way to the bank but it'll all be gone inside of 10 years if they keep pursuing that lifestyle. MTV won't foot the bills forever.
dizzybritches June 18, 2012 at 01:54 PM
NJ Ghost, I remember that. I think it was for the proposed Snooki-and-JWoww spinoff. I guess the producers thought Hoboken sounded 'funny'. But Hoboken told them no thanks, or so I read.
dizzybritches June 18, 2012 at 02:00 PM
Sergio, since I am a 5'1", 115-lb woman, if you tried to follow me home, I would call the local cops. Ronnie does not have control over his temper. That makes him a dangerous infant, NOT a man. Words NEVER justify blows between adults. I see hard prison time in Ronnie's future under he gets his 'roid rage under control.

This I would Watch !!!
Joe Stewart June 18, 2012 at 02:14 PM
Here's the deal. This little wimp RONNIE and all his steroid ridden pals are always protected by an entourage of security. Accept when they can get into an altercation that is not dangerous to them. Then they are let free and the camera rolls. The management at MTV is very smart and so is the marketing group. They most likely pay any fines that are incurred and the ratings soar. Let that little muscle bound wimp loose by himself and see how fast he end up in intensive care by a group of guys who are sick of him and the blow up kings!

No copycats at Pt Beach please!!!!!!!!

I'm a local. Lived here my whole life. When I go on vacation I'm ebarrased to say I'm from the jersey shore because they think that the show represents us. When its the bennies who mostly act that way. But in all fairness, the show brings money to the local buisnesses. I have family that owns some buisnesses and profits are up because of the show. You have to take the plusses and negatives. Is it about time for the show to end yes. I have met some of them away form filming and they were nice to me. Maybe ronnie should think twice before swinnging but the kid he knocked out in the first season when he bragged "one punch" can get on your nerves and still braggs he got hit by ronnie. So who's to blame there? Some people don't like howard stern but still listen to him. Same with the show. Most people on the patch said they don't like it but you know their names and still talk about the show.

Sergio Baptista June 18, 2012 at 03:41 PM
Dizzy if anyone of these guys here on this topic was being followed by someone who was shouting out names at them on there way home they would of done the same thing Ronnie did ... If they say different there liars .....Also if any guys on here were given the chance to do what the cast is doing for a living I'm sure they would say NO because it's just not right .
chris a June 18, 2012 at 03:47 PM
may not be right but i'd take the money lol
Jay June 18, 2012 at 04:05 PM
That's one shot kid!! So arrested twice, 4 fights now, he'll get nothing as the twp. and police are paid off by the show to allow this type of crap!!
Roy N Lunchbox June 18, 2012 at 05:07 PM
Get a life people. Or better yet....take your own. This is what is important in your lives...? Wow...way to make a stand.
OC LEO June 18, 2012 at 06:28 PM
Came on Vacation; went home on Probation. Lock 'em all up and send the bill to MTV!
Echolocation June 18, 2012 at 09:46 PM
Please tell me you're joking Diane. Are we watching the same show? Have you seen the past actions of these cast members? They're 30 years old and they act like hoodlums. How's that paycheck from MTV doing Diane.
Carol Aller June 21, 2012 at 03:10 PM
What was Seaside thinking? Show me the money! That's it in a nutshell...and Seaside is making LOTS of money while the film crew is here. Meals, hotel rooms, etc. Unfortunately the sleeze factor brings money in too. =( Not a smart choice by our 'so called' leaders over there! It's always about the all-might dollar today and no one cares or can think about the long term effects because they can't think past the ends of their ignorant noses!
Jillian V June 21, 2012 at 09:29 PM
Diane, with all due respect (and I realize this is not the point of the topic) but Toms River is a lovely town to live in. If you are a drunk idiot, you are a drunk idiot, fair enough. Most likely, these kids (or not kids, fair enough as well) are paid to act as such. Either way, Toms River is a delightful area with alot to offer. Seaside while being known as the party town to PPB's family orientated atmosphere has gotten alot better over the years. People will do what they will do in any given situation. These kids are doing just that. It is unfair to group all Toms River and Seaside locals (yes, I was once one-for 29 some odd years) in the same boat. Further, to touch on the actual subject, we were not there with Ronnie and cannot know what actually transpired.
Annette September 14, 2012 at 03:29 PM
@jan. Are they from up north or SI? I also would consider them locals. I was reading the patch about arrests and in the words of the article they said locals.
Ken September 14, 2012 at 03:41 PM
@Annette...locals are from Ocean County
