'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.

Is he the one that was kicked out of the Big Brother house for violent tendencies? You'd think he would have sought help after the show.

No, I believe he was the a-hole who was lucky enough to get a ******* from his showmance girlfriend and then nice enough to tell freaking everyone about it.

Total class act, obviously.

Just you watch. One way or another, the commenters here will find some way to blame Chris Brown for this.

Damn, now doesn't that dimwhit Natalie feel lucky he didn't give her the time of day after the show or even during?? Probably not, she's stupid enough to still be "in love" with Matt.

It isn't a baby until it's no longer eligible for a late-term abortion, is it?

And it doesn't make sense that a father would be bullied into not calling the police when some guy was attacking his daughter.

She's just pissed because she's pregnant and doesn't know for sure who the father is, and Matt McDonald wanted her to sign a pre-nup before marrying her. If he married her today without a pre-nup this whole thing would disappear.

I guess because he ISN'T a Chris Brown -- a.k.a a rich, Black, young celebrity -- this dude will get the electric chair.

Same crime, MUCH different consequences. Tsk. America's "legal system" is a JOKE.
