MTV reality star RONNIE ORTIZ-MAGRO was arrested on Sunday morning (15Aug10) after cops caught up with him over a series of unpaid parking tickets.
The Jersey Shore star, who shot to fame in the hit TV show last year (09), was taken into custody in Seaside Heights, New Jersey over allegations he failed to pay up for a string of traffic violations.
He was taken to the Seaside Heights police station where he settled his debts and was then released.
A statement from the police department, released to TMZ.com, reads, "Ronald Ortiz was placed under arrest for outstanding warrants from two separate jurisdictions... Mr. Ortiz was transported to the Seaside Heights Police Department where he was processed and later released after satisfying the conditions of these warrants."
Ortiz-Magro's arrest came just weeks after his Jersey Shore co-star Nicole 'Snooki' Polizzi was arrested in New Jersey on suspicion of disorderly conduct after a boozy night out.
