The wealthy tech CEO who allegedly brutalized "Beverly Hills Nannies" star Ari Bellamar during what was supposed to be a romantic Utah getaway has just been charged with 3 crimes ... and now faces more than a year behind bars, TMZ has learned.

According to official docs, Entropic CEO Patrick Henry -- who earns a reported $2 million a year -- has been charged with assault, interrupting a 911 call, and destruction of property ... all misdemeanors.

Sources close to Ari tell TMZ, the charges stem from a blowout argument on January 23rd -- we're told Ari jetted out to Henry's Utah cabin for a romantic getaway, after meeting him online, and during a boozy evening out ... he grew jealous of the way his friends were flirting with her.

We're told Ari decided to head back to their cabin early -- and by the time Henry returned as well, he was in a rage.

Sources tell us, Henry attacked Ari, dragging her by the hair and throwing her against a wall. We're told Ari tried to call 911 but Henry grabbed her phone and shattered it against a wall.

We're told Henry then called police himself because Ari was hysterical, and when officers arrived ... they took her to the hospital for examination. Henry was NOT arrested.

Henry's attorney had no comment.

What kind of woman flies to Utah for a weekend of sex with a stranger? If he slapped her around, he's as big a jerk as she is a tramp. Enough money and I'll bet she decides not to pursue the matter. I don't condone any man getting physical with a woman, but geez, lady, how stupid can you be!?!

I for some reason watched this ridiculous show , and she got married to some other rich guy on it (a year ago). SHe also seemed like a total beyotch so def deserved a slap or two. There's no way she's 28, she looks to be in her 40s

The only reason someone like her would date a man who looks like that is so she could make some money for having sex with him. Obviously he didn't agree, so she will wring the money out of him and his reputation to get it that way instead.

Pictures on ROL look bad. I thought he just pushed her around, but it was way more than that. Nobody deserves that kind of treatment. He won't go to jail, but she's in for a substantial settlement. No doubt about it. Maybe she will change her attitude about going off with strangers...no matter how rich they are.

Men that attack women are no better then child molesters. Give her a baseball bat let her hit him 10 times with it.

She is pretty stupid herself, obviously in it for money. Is Nanny the new code word for mistress or escort? She will end up getting paid off . Regardless men that hit women are worthless trolls

Well, he did pay for the trip, no? He probably thought he was entitled to a little something one way or another.
On the other hand, ladies who let 'rich' men take them on all-expenses-paid trips should know better.

He was jealous of the way HIS FRIENDS were flirting with her, so he attacked HER? Seems to me he should have put HIS FRIENDS in check. Pay up!

The news reports say that he threw her phone against the wall to interrupt her 911 call and he is being charged for disrupting a 911 call and destruction of property. Hmmmm. Why would he do that if he had done nothing? Also, her facebook page has copies (alleged) of bizarre texts Mr. Henry sent to her before and then threatened her by text if she were to report the incident publicly. The other sites and her facebook have pictures of the woman's beat up body. From the way Pat Henry behaves at work, this is not surprise at all. My opinion is that he is a disaster. Are beatings why his previous two wives divorced him?

You don't know if she is a "whore" or not, but even a whore does not deserve to be beaten. It is illegal and the perp when found guilty needs to go to jail (and do Entropic a favor in the process).
