Rick Schroder—a.k.a Ricky— is in the slammer. The NYPD Blue and Silver Spoons star was arrested for alleged domestic violence—striking his girlfriend in the face, according to TMZ.
The website spoke with law enforcement officials who told them, “Cops got a call around 12:43 AM for a domestic incident at the “NYPD Blue” and “Silver Spoons” star’s home. When they arrived they spoke to him and his girlfriend — and shortly after that, Schroder was arrested for felony domestic violence. Schroder’s girlfriend refused medical treatment.
What makes this arrest even sadder is that Rick was just arrested 30 days earlier for the same thing. TMZ reports that the prior incident had the actor “punching his girlfriend in the face as she tried to leave the house.”
Rick is currently in custody with bail set at $50,000.
Rick is best known for his roles as Ricky Stratton on the 1982 sitcom Silver Spoons, which aired until 1987. He later starred on NYPD Blue in 1998-2001 as Detective Danny Sorenson. His most recent television role was as Robert Lee Parton in Dolly Parton’s Coat of Many Colors and Christmas of Many Colors.
The 49-year-old was married to Andrea in 1992 and they divorced in 2016. Andrea filed for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences. The couple share four children together. Andrea was not the woman who was allegedly hit by Rick.
