The former MTV star, 42, was arrested June 19 and booked on suspicion of felony corporal injury on a spouse or cohabitant. In lieu of $30,000 bail, Rainey will remain in custody at Los Angeles County Men’s Central Jail until his July 6 San Fernando court date.
This isn’t the first time the Real World bad boy has made headlines for domestic violence. Prosecutors declined to file charges against Rainey in a 2003 domestic violence case, but after a 2009 altercation with his girlfriend, he pleaded no contest to battery charges and was sentenced to a year in jail.
That same year, Rainey pleaded no contest to felony possession of ammunition in L.A. county; he was placed on three years’ probation.
Rainey and his wife Betty — who wed in July 2002 during Real World/Road Rules: Battle of the Sexes — have two sons together, Bogart and Rocco.
