Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, of MTV's "Jersey Shore," has been admitted into a pretrial intervention program that will allow him to avoid a criminal record for an assault that was shown on the show's first season, The Associated Press reports. The 25-year-old Bronx resident appeared yesterday in New Jersey Superior Court in Toms River. Judge Stephanie Wauters told Ortiz-Magro that he'd be in the program for 18 months and asked if he'd be willing to do community service during that time. The Asbury Park Press reports that he said he would, though the judge did not specify what or how much.

In addition to "Celebrity Rehab" and his practice, Pinsky hosts HLN's "Dr. Drew" and the daily "Dr. Drew's Lifechangers," which begins this fall on The CW.
