Ortiz-Magro's attorney's also refused to give any details on the incident.

"We have just learned of the new allegations against Ronnie and need some additional time to further investigate," Ortiz-Magro's lawyers, Scott E. Leemon and Leonard Levine, told the entertainment outlet. "As such, we will not be making any other statements at this time."

The Los Angeles Police Department also confirmed his arrest, adding that the booking fell under "intimate partner violence with injury with priors."

In January 2019, the reality television star checked into rehab for alcohol abuse and depression. "I decided to go to treatment because I wanted to be a better person, a better father for my daughter," he told Us the following month. "Eventually, all the bad decisions I was making were going to lead me to places that I didn't want to be. I wanted to be led to the place that I am now — that's happy, healthy and the best role model for my daughter."
