Former On My Block and Stuck In the Middle star Ronni Hawk was arrested last Friday for domestic violence, according to a TMZ report.

E! News reports that, "the arrest took place at 8:30 a.m. on July 31" in Los Angeles. "Police got a call to a home for a domestic disturbance, and when they arrived, officers say a man on the scene had visible injuries including scratches", per TMZ.

"Ronni was taken to Valley Jail in Van Nuys, Calif. that morning and booked at 11:36 a.m. She was released later that day at 9:45 p.m. on bond. The bail amount had been set at $100,000. Hawk is expected to appear in court on December 11," E! News also reported.

Ronni recently appeared in The CW's Legacies as Wendy in a couple of episodes of the show's second season. She also previously starred in Disney's Stuck in the Middle for the show's first two seasons.

Ronni later moved to Netflix's On My Block where she starred on series for one season. After the series originally premiered, many fans took to social media to call out her casting as she was a white woman playing a Latinx character. Old tweets supporting Donald Trump as President also resurfaced. Her character was killed off in season two, although, the show's creators have said it was not due to backlash, according to Shadow and Act.

The actress has yet to post anything on social media over the incident.
