LOS ANGELES (CNS) - Ronnie Ortiz-Magro of the TV reality show ``Jersey Shore'' has been charged with seven misdemeanor counts stemming from an alleged attack on his girlfriend earlier this month in the Hollywood Hills area.

Ortiz-Magro, 33, is charged with one count each of corporal injury to a spouse or cohabitant, unlawfully drawing and exhibiting a deadly weapon, criminal threats, false imprisonment and child endangerment, along with two counts of resisting, delaying or obstructing a peace officer, according to the criminal complaint filed late Wednesday by the Los Angeles City Attorney's Office.

Los Angeles County prosecutors referred the matter to the City Attorney's Office for a potential misdemeanor case.

Ortiz-Magro was booked early Oct. 4 after officers went to a residence in the 7200 block of Woodrow Wilson Drive in response to a report of a battery, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

TMZ.com reported that he allegedly slapped and punched the woman, chased after her with a knife in his hand and was holding their 18-month-old daughter as he yelled at her to get back inside the house.

He was released on bond less than nine hours after his arrest.
