Real Housewives of New Jersey
star, Jim Marchese, was arrested and transported off a Virgin America flight after he allegedly had a domestic dispute on the aircraft.
The Los Angeles International Airport police department tells ET that at around 11:30 p.m. on Tuesday night, airport police were called to Terminal 3 and escorted a male suspect and female victim off a Virgin America plane. After additional questioning, the suspect was accused of grabbing the woman's throat and making threats against her.
The airline confirmed that Jim was arrested and taken to jail by the LAPD to be booked for alleged domestic violence.
On Tuesday night, Jim's wife, Amber Marchese, posted a selfie to Instagram, saying she was on a "red eye."
Prior to catching a late flight, the former Bravo star shared a photo with an empowering message. "Confidence. Strength. Power. Sexuality. Embrace it all," she wrote, adding the hashtags #confidence, #womenpower, #strongisthenewsexy and #strength.
Amber and Jim, who have been married since 2004, appeared on RHONJ for one season in 2014. ET has reached out to the couple for comment.
