'Big Bro' Star

Arrested for

Beating Pregnant GF

4/23/2010 12:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A former "Big Brother" houseguest was arrested this weekend after allegedly unleashing a ferocious attack on his pregnant girlfriend.

According to the Boston PD, cops responded to the home of Matt McDonald -- who appeared on BB Season 9 -- after his girlfriend showed up at a local police station to file a complaint.

Cops say Matt's GF -- who's currently 8 weeks pregnant with Matt's baby -- told them the two began arguing after the reality star accused her of cheating on him ... and that's when things got violent.

According to the police report, Matt's GF told cops he began strangling her and yelling, "I hope the baby dies and hope u [sic] have a miscarriage."

The GF claims the next day, Matt accused her of pouring water in his plasma TV -- and then proceeded to kick her in the collarbone, put her in a headlock ... and began punching her in the arms.

During the alleged confrontation, Matt called the victim's father on the phone and she allegedly screamed for help. Matt then screamed, "Shut the f*ck up or I'll punch you in the face." She also claims Matt threatened to kill her father if he called cops.

According to the police report, officers observed visible bruising on the GF's arms, neck and collarbone -- and proceeded to arrest McDonald. According to the police report, McDonald told cops that she attacked him -- and he was simply defending himself.

McDonald was charged with assault and battery -- and assault and battery upon a pregnant person. He's due back in court next month.

As for the baby, we're told the GF is still pregnant.

UPDATE: TMZ has learned the two were engaged to be married at the time of the incident.

@ "ralph" - Prenup? That's laughable. Why would she need to sign a prenup? He doesn't have any money. Oh, I forgot about the plasma tv. Maybe that's what the prenup is for. LMAO.

guaranteed, she moves back in with him and they marry. if she does that, then i have no sympathy for her. the baby on the other hand, should be taken from her if she does go running back to him.



some women are just plain stupid and desperate.

Matt was a jerk on BB and thought who he was.Any boy that hits a pregant women or a women period is the lowest form of a poor excuse for a humane being.
I hope she presses charges all the way.



Matt, your a low life loser. I hope this baby is NOT yours. You need help badly. S*** like you should be locked up....

I'm a women, and I think it's ridiculous that lots of women throw the 1st punches and then cry assault when the guy defends himself against them. It happens all the time. I think when things get physical, whom ever starts it, they better be ready to get it back as good as they gave it. NO it's not right for a man to hit a woman, but it's no better for a woman to hit a man either.
