Yikes!

Remember that gnarly fight Jersey Shore's Ronnie Ortiz got in during season one??

Well, the punch that was heard around the world has come back to bite him in the butt!

Ronnie was indicted by a grand jury on Friday and was charged with one count of third-degree assault, which could lead to a sentence of up to five years in state prison.

According to Ronnie's rep, the indictment came as a "complete shock" and his "attorneys have been in contact with the prosecutors office" as they are "waiting to see the documents."

Hmm, seems like someone thought he was going to get off scot-free! We're sure his lawyers are scrambling for a plea bargain at this point. We wonder what the rest of his Jersey Shore cast mates think about this!

    Yea, because Ronnie DID ABSOLUTELY NOTHING WRONG except defend himself and lay a kid out. He did nothing but walk away until the kid and his girl escalated it to something physical.

    There is absolutely NO WAY that Ronnie can get a fair trial in this state or anywhere else for that matter considering the amount of hatred against the "guizo lifestyle" by most of the adult population and most of the people that Jersey Shore is marketed to.

    It's embarassing for our legal system to fail so miserably in a black & white case that was easy to call from the get go. Anyone who had watched that footage, which was probably inadmissable by the way because it was already out there and influenced by public opinion,…if you saw it, though, you'd know instantly that the kid was not guilty.

    Shame on whomever was on that panel for straight lookin to get your damn name in the paper.

    Ronnie was not provoked or touched by the man he fist punched in the face so hard it caused him to be unconscious. We all know we cannot put our hands on another person, EVER. Ronnie was prosecuted after many people saw the entire tape. You have to realize that Ronnie is lucky he did not kill this man.

    nice meat scarf!

    This is total BS. Ronnie was provoked. He never punched anybody on that show who didn't have it coming.



  12. 12

    he should pay any bills but prison for smacking /defending yourself no NO



  13. 13

    IT WOULD BE REALLY HARD TO FIGHT WITH HIM BECAUSE YOU'D KEEP SLIDING OFF HIM BECAUSE OF ALL THE GREASE



  14. 14

    If he is gonna get in trouble n e way….he should go back and give him a Real beatin



  15. 15

    5 years in prison? That's way too harsh. He should get in trouble, yeah because he still could have kept walking. But what about those other two douches, who were following him, drunk in public, and provoking him? Do they get away without any punishment? The whole ordeal was really their fault. You can't poke a lion with a stick and then cry when it bites you.

    Look up the fight on youtube. He ran back two blocks and coldcocked the guy in the face. I think you are mixing it up with a woman and man that provoked him — just watch the video.

    I hear the real story was Ronnie was really picking on that guy. :( He's a bully.



  18. 18

    Ronnie is an absolute tool with a brain the size of a pea. I hope he stays in jail forever.



  19. 19

    I'm sorry, I don't condone violence, but that guy Ronnie hit was provoking him. It was not right what Ronnie did, but 5 years?! Come on. That guy just wanted some air time and now probably wants money too.

    Re: uncmoose187 – I do not think that is the fight this inditement is based off of.. I think it is the one he got arrested for.. where he was being heckled.. and then randomly turned around ran to the guy and knocked him out and ran away.. I dont think its the board walk fight… :)
