Jim Marchese’s flight plan was derailed last night when he was ejected off an airplane in L.A. and arrested for domestic violence after allegedly grabbing Amber by the throat and making threats to hurt her.
The former Real Housewives of New Jersey stars were aboard a flight heading out of LAX on a red eye flight when an incident reportedly occurred involving Jim and Amber and they were thrown off the flight and Jim was arrested. The police shared with E! News, “At the request of officers, a male suspect and a female victim left the aircraft. Additional questioning revealed the suspect had grabbed the victim by the throat and made threats against her. Suspect James Marchese was arrested and transported to LAPD Pacific Division where he was booked.” Jim was charged with felony domestic violence.
Amber bailed Jim out – on $50,000 bail – shortly after. TMZ cameras caught Jim as he and Amber hopped in a cab. Jim promised to sue. “We were all [sleeping?] and having a good time on the plane and I guess Virgin Atlantic wants to take care of my kids’ scholarship fund.” Jim confirms that he’s pressing charges against the airline and filing civil litigation.
In other Amber news, about a week ago she posted that she and Jim were working on a big project together. “Good morning brothers and sisters! Just thinking of all of you out there. Sorry I have not been on social media in some time. I have been working on a wonderful project with Jim that I cant wait for all of you to see. It’s been tough, but the message is real. It puts the real back into reality, nothing like I have ever seen before. I am super proud of this project from production, crew, and cast. love you all and please let me know how you are doing!! #staytuned #missingyouall #love #work #family #friendship #newpath #neverstop.”
