Home Alone actor Devin Ratray was arrested on suspicion of assaulting his girlfriend in an Oklahoma hotel room earlier this month.
The 44-year-old, best known for his role as Buzz McCallister in his favorite 1990 film, Home Alone, was left furious after his girlfriend didn’t charge two fans for his autograph at the OKC Pop Christmas Con in Oklahoma City on December 4th and 5th.
The couple’s argument continued in their hotel room, where Devin allegedly tried to strangle his girlfriend, who remains unnamed.
Devin’s attorney has since released a statement, which reads: “Mr. Ratray denies ever putting a hand on her or doing anything about anything like that.”
According to online court documents, Devin was arrested on Wednesday and is now charged with domestic assault and beatings for strangulation and domestic assault and beatings – charges he denies.
According to Fox News, a police source said Devin had “turned himself in and was tried and sentenced”.
He was released from custody after paying a $ 25,000 bail.
A spokesperson for the Oklahoma City Police Department had previously confirmed the altercation to PEOPLE.
In the documents obtained by KFOR, Devin’s girlfriend claimed that she drank a bottle of wine and ten glasses of spirits before the alleged incident.
She claimed he followed her to their hotel room after their heated dispute at the event.
According to the news station, an affidavit of probable cause states: “[The] the victim had difficulty breathing while being strangled and while the accused’s hand was over her mouth. “
While allegedly suffocating her, Devin was said to have told her: “This is how you die.”
Reportedly, Devin’s girlfriend bit his hand to keep her from choking her and managed to escape from the room.
He later reportedly punched her against a desk when she returned to the room to collect her belongings. The couple broke up after the alleged quarrel.
KFOR says the alleged victim was found with multiple injuries, including bruises under the left eye, marks under the right eye, marks above the left side of the lip, a bruise on the chest, and a sore arm.
Devin denies the allegations, with her attorney Scott Adams stating, “Mr. Ratray denies ever putting a hand on her or doing anything about anything like that.
“What we do know happened is that the individual he was and was from out of town with (and) had a disagreement. Eventually he called the police. They showed up at the scene and two patrol officers talked to Mr. Ratray. They talked to the female.
“They saw nothing they thought was enough to arrest him or take him into custody.”
Having found success in the Home Alone film series, Devin has appeared in series such as Third Watch, Law & Order and The Good Wife.
He also appeared in the 2019 film, Hustlers.
