HOME Alone star Devin Ratray has been arrested for allegedly strangling his ex-girlfriend.
Ratray was taken into custody on domestic violence charges on Wednesday, December 22, 2021.
Who is Devin Ratray’s ex-girlfriend?
Police have not released Ratray’s ex-girlfriend’s name, nor have any reports been lodged identifying her.
According to Meaww, the couple had been attending a convention in Oklahoma City between December 4 and 5 when the incident took place.
Ratray is a former child actor best known for his role as Kevin McCallister’s evil older brother Buzz in Home Alone.
Why was Home Alone’s Devin Ratray arrested?
Two weeks ago, Devin and his girlfriend allegedly got into an argument which turned physical.
The actor’s significant other claimed he began “strangling her and putting his hand over her mouth,” as their fight escalated.
She then alleged that she “bit his hand,” before “he punched her in the face and she escaped to a stairwell.”
“She then got her stuff and left, waiting for the cops to arrive,” according to documents obtained by TMZ.
Law enforcement sources told the outlet they were “called to a Hyatt near downtown OKC earlier this week for a domestic dispute between Ratray and his girlfriend.”
However, Devin’s reps have asserted that the two “got into a verbal argument, nothing physical, and things were so nasty the two broke up.”
The representative did not divulge further information on what the fight was about.
The police informant continued on to say that everything was “sorted out once Devin and his girlfriend decided to go their separate ways for the night.”
The accuser “got a separate room” and no one was arrested at the time.
According to TMZ, Devin was booked with domestic charges Wednesday after turning himself into Oklahoma City authorities.
Devin was charged with domestic assault and battery by strangulation.
He was released on a $25k bond within 15 minutes after posing for a mug shot, which can be viewed here.
The actor’s shocking arrest came after he shared he would be a part of the movie’s “reunion,” set to take place 31 years after Home Alone first aired.
No announcement has been made as to if the 44-year-old actor will still be involved.
According to Meaww, Ratray strangled his girlfriend after she handed fans free autographs without his permission.
