By now you’ve heard Jersey Shore is headed to Italy for Season 4, but did you know guido star Ronnie Magro might be left in the Bronx? Nooooo! You can’t have Jersey Shore without Ron Ron.

If you remember way back in Season 1, Ronnie knocked out a drunken rando on the boardwalk after getting into an argument about New Jersey. RadarOnline has obtained court documents from September 4, 2009, which state that Ronnie “purposely or knowingly caused significant bodily injury to a man by striking him in the face with a closed fist, causing him to lose consciousness.”

For this act of idiocy, Ronnie was indicted by a New Jersey grand jury on assault charges and may miss out on Jersey Shore’s Season 4 European romp. Oops. He’s facing one count of third degree assault — a charge that could land him up to five years in state prison! And, according to a spokesperson at the Italian Embassy, Ronnie may not be able to obtain a Visa because his case is still undecided: "Any person applying for a Visa to Italy must have their case fully adjudicated."

This whole mess could be a travel blocker, but we aren’t too worried. (Don’t hate the playa, people, hate the game!) Can you even imagine an entire season of Jersey Shore without Ronnie and his juicehead antics — or that distinctive giggle?
