UPDATE: A criminal complaint has been filed against Jen Harley, stemming from her June arrest in Las Vegas.
On Wednesday, Aug. 18, the 33-year-old former MTV personality was formally charged with one felony count of assault with a domestic weapon constituting domestic violence, and one misdemeanor count of battery constituting domestic violence, according to the complaint obtained by E! News.
Jen’s attorney denied the allegations in a statement to E! News. “We believe the charges are unsubstantiated and that overwhelming mitigating evidence exists that Jen did not commit any crime,” the message read. “We look forward to our day in court and having all charges against Ms. Harley dismissed.”
Jen Harley encountered some trouble with the law over the weekend in Las Vegas.
The Jersey Shore Family Vacation alum was arrested for alleged misdemeanor domestic violence and felony assault with a deadly weapon on Saturday, June 19, in Las Vegas, where she lives, E! News confirmed via court records.
She is no longer in police custody as she was released on bond. E! News has not confirmed the victim’s identity.
Per the criminal division of the Las Vegas Justice Court, the state has not filed charges yet, and Jen has two upcoming court dates on Aug. 18 and 19 for each case.
E! News has reached out to her attorney and manager for comment and has not heard back.
On the day of Jen’s arrest, her 3-year-old daughter Ariana Sky Magro was with her ex, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, as he celebrated a major milestone in his new relationship. The reality star proposed to his now-fiancée, Saffire Matos, at a Southern California beach, according to a source.
“[His daughter] Ariana, Ron’s mom and step-dad were there for the engagement at the Los Angeles beach on Saturday,” a source close to Ronnie told E! News.
