The ex-girlfriend of “Jersey Shore” star Ronnie Ortiz-Magro was arrested after she allegedly dragged him by a car during an argument.

Las Vegas police and her lawyer say that 31-year-old Jennifer Harley is facing a misdemeanor domestic battery charge after a weekend fight.

Harley was arrested Sunday night after officers responded to a report of a man trying to pull a woman from a damaged vehicle near a crossroads southwest of the Las Vegas Strip.

Harley's attorney, Michael Cristalli, confirmed the arrest but said he could not immediately comment about the circumstances.

Police says Ortiz-Magro was bleeding, that officers determined Harley was the aggressor and that the two had a domestic relationship.

Harley and Ortiz-Magro have a young daughter together. TMZ reports that the daughter was in the car at the time of the incident.

Records show Harley was released from jail pending an initial court appearance.

The Associated press wire services contributed to this report.
