LAPD was on a manhunt for “Jersey Shore” star Ronnie Ortiz-Magro during the incident that landed him in jail, and the dispatch reveals that when they finally made contact, he wouldn’t go down without a fight.
The Blast obtained the LAPD dispatch audio between emergency responders during the unfolding events of Ronnie’s arrest.
The initial 911 call came in around 2:40 AM on Friday, and cops quickly jumped into action as they raced towards the Hollywood Hills.
One of the calls came in as a panic alarm, but soon other calls came in, with cops describing a screaming woman and an aggressive male.
As LAPD was responding to the battery in progress call, Jen had apparently ran over to a neighbor’s home and told them that someone had taken her daughter, which cops relayed over the dispatch audio.

Ronnie was described as being shirtless and wearing board shorts, and had been spotted by neighbors running around outside.
The situation got so out of hand that the reality TV star was soon identified by his actual name, with cops even explaining that he appears on “Jersey Shore.”
Ron was eventually located outside, but then ran inside the Airbnb he was renting.
According to the audio, cops confirmed that he was “refusing to comply” and prepared to “make entry” on the home, which they eventually did.
LAPD officers broke down the door and tased Ronnie, and he was subdued and placed into custody.
He was transported to the hospital, cleared by doctors, and was formally booked for kidnapping and could face other charges.
Ronnie and Jen’s daughter was unharmed, and Jen suffered minor injuries.
