Ronnie allegedly had a knife in his hand when he followed after Jen. The kicker is he also had their daughter, Ariana in his arms. Things go progressively worse from there. Ronnie went back in side the home, without the knife, locking him and his daughter inside, ignoring police orders to come out.

TMZ reports that police were forced to break down the door and because Ronnie would still not cooperate, they had to tase the reality star. The 33-year-old will be booked on domestic violence and kidnapping.

The violence in the relationship is not new for the couple, who share a 1-year-old daughter Ariana Sky Magro. Their rocky relationship and violent outbursts have been documented on social media. Jen was arrested for batter after she threw an ashtray at Ronnie, leaving marks and cuts on his face. Prior to that incident, Jen had been arrested for allegedly briefly dragged Ronnie with her car while their infant daughter was in the backseat.

It remains to see what happens with the couple going forward.
