Jenn Harley has been hit with two charges following a June domestic violence incident with now ex-boyfriend Joseph Ambrosole.
The ex of Jersey Shore star Ronnie Ortiz-Magro faces one felony count of assault with a deadly weapon and one misdemeanor count of battery in the state of Nevada per legal documents obtained by TMZ on Friday.
On June 19, Harley got into a heated altercation with Ambrosole, whom she allegedly pointed a gun at while threatening ‘I’ll shoot you n****’ and ‘I’ll kill you right f****** now,’ following a night of heavy drinking.

Harley’s attorney Michael Cristalli told TMZ that the charges are ‘unsubstantiated.’
Cristalli continued to have his client’s back and maintained her innocence as he said: ‘there is going to be overwhelming mitigated evidence that exists [showing] Jenn did not commit any crime.’
The incident in question culminated with her hurling racial slurs and brandishing a gun at Ambrosole after a night out on the town.
Law enforcement detailed the evening to the publication at the time, and spoke about the drama that allegedly went down between the pair at Crazy Horse 3 in Las Vegas — which continued back at home.

The duo reportedly argued over her alcohol consumption as well as the location of where they would park their vehicle, and their riff continued into the establishment where they were asked to leave by club security.
The fight continued throughout the course of the drive home where Harley’s anger allegedly intensified to the point where she got a bit physical and even tossed his phone out the window.
After pulling over to look for the phone, Harley reportedly got into the driver’s seat and left him stranded, forcing him to find his own way back home — at which point things turned more violent.
Authorities said that Ambrosole explained that when he arrived to their residence, they continued to exchange words, at which point Harley threatened him with the firearm, before fleeing the home.

She was eventually tracked down by police, who booked her on charges of domestic violence and assault with a deadly weapon which she now faces in court.
Just one month after the incident — which occured on the same weekend Ortiz-Magro got engaged — her rep Gina Rodriguez told TMZ that Harley had checked into a 28-day program of her own volition for alcohol.
‘Jenn Harley has decided to check into a Las Vegas rehab facility to seek treatment for her alcohol dependency. She made the decision to get help because she wants to be the best parent she can be for her children,’ the statement read.
Harley is mom to an 11-year-old son named Mason from a previous partner and a three-year-old daughter Ariana who she shares with the Jersey Shore vet.

And their on-off relationship from 2017 to 2019 was also rife with issues including numerous physical altercations, cheating allegations, and domestic violence arrests on both sides.
In 2018 she showed up to a Vegas hotel unannounced where filming for Season 2 of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation was taking place, at which point she ‘lunged, spit and shoved Ronnie,’ prompting hotel security to get involved and the police to be called.
Just weeks later she was arrested for domestic battery after she was said to have hit him in the face and dragged him with a car which caused him to sustain injuries.
She did not face charges however due to insufficient evidence and denied the situation, flipping it on him, but she was arrested another time for domestic battery in 2019.
Their daughter: Jenn and Ronnie dated on and off from 2017 to 2019 and they share a three-year-old daughter Ariana together
