My life rule to never trust a grown man with a boy’s name bears repeating with the news that Ricky Schroder has arrested for felony domestic violence. What’s worse, it’s his second arrest in a month! This motherfucker thought he had us fooled with the baby face and cutesy name, but now I’m viewing everything in a new light. He probably pinched himself and used camphor to get those tears flowing in The Champ.
According to TMZ , Ricky is sitting in jail this fine Tuesday morning after getting booked for allegedly hitting his girlfriend. His bail has been set at $50,000.
Cops got a call around 12:43 AM for a domestic incident at the “NYPD Blue” and “Silver Spoons” star’s home. When they arrived they spoke to him and his girlfriend — and shortly after that, Schroder was arrested for felony domestic violence … according to our law enforcement sources.
The fact he was booked for a felony typically means the victim had visible marks of some kind. We’re told Schroder’s girlfriend refused medical treatment on the scene.
Turns out the L.A. County Sheriff’s Dept. made almost the exact same arrest 30 days ago. Our sources say Schroder was taken into custody on April 2 … also for felony domestic violence.
During the first incident, Rick (he’s lost Y privileges) “allegedly punched his girlfriend in the face as she tried to leave their home”. All of a sudden, Rick’s ex-wife filing for divorce, and getting sole custody of their then 15-year-old daughter Faith after 24 years of marriage is looking a little sinister. Their 3 other kids (Cambrie, Luke and Holden) were 18 by the time of their divorce. Rick’s ex Andrea Bernard was raised in the LDS faith and Rick reportedly converted for her. I think that means we can assume she didn’t take the step of divorce lightly.
According to IMDB, Rick hasn’t worked in a couple years. Looks like he’s been holed up in Malibu with a pack of dogs, occasionally going out huntin’ and fishin’, and apparently whooping on his girlfriend. So good luck to him getting work outside of signing over his life story to Lifetime so they can make Tarnished Silver: The Ricky Schroder Story.
