‘Home Alone’ actor arrested for allegedly strangling girlfriend

The Daily Beast is reporting that a “Home Alone” actor has been arrested following an alleged domestic violence incident.

“Devin Ratray — the actor best known for portraying Kevin McCallister’s bullying big brother Buzz in Home Alone — has been arrested for allegedly strangling and punching his girlfriend at a fan convention,” reported Jamie Ross. “According to Deadline, Ratray, who is 44, was in Oklahoma City in early December as one of the star attractions at OKC Pop Christmas Con.”

“Reports say Ratray fell out with his girlfriend after she gave some autograph-hunters his signed photo for free at the event, and the dispute allegedly turned violent in their hotel room,” said the report. “‘[The] victim had trouble breathing while she was being strangled and while the defendant’s hand was over her mouth,’ Detective Joseph Burnett of the Oklahoma City Police Department wrote. Ratray then allegedly told her ‘This is how you die’ and punched her before she escaped.”

According to the report, Ratray denies the assault.

This comes amid other controversies surrounding actors, including Jay Johnson — the voice of Jimmy Pesto Sr. on “Bob’s Burgers” — being fired from the show after he was identified as present at the January 6 Capitol attack.
