Jersey Shore's Ronnie Indicted on Assault Charge



    Beefed-up Ronnie Magro is a lover and fighter.

    One of the stars of MTV's "Jersey Shore'' has been indicted for an assault that allegedly happened just off camera.

    A grand jury in Ocean County, N.J., said there's evidence that Ronald "Ronnie'' Ortiz-Magro committed a crime.

    The indictment was issued Thursday and made public Friday. The grand jury said the 25-year-old reality TV star knocked a man out with a punch on Sept. 4, 2009, when the show was being filmed in Seaside Heights. While the punch wasn't shown on the show, Ortiz-Magro was seen bragging about it.

    Prosectuors told The Asbury Park Press that they hoped to resolve the case without an indictment.

    No lawyer is listed for Ortiz-Magro. MTV publicists did not immediately respond to requests for a comment on Saturday.
