A second millionaire on "The Millionaire Matchmaker" in less than 2 months has been charged with brutalizing a woman ... and the latest one was so bad, the guy was arrested for attempted murder.
John Bonavia was featured on 'Millionaire Matchmaker' on March 20, 2014. According to the show, he's a financial adviser and worth $1 million.
On Sept. 12th, the Beverly Hills Police Dept. got a call from Bonavia's neighbor, who was alarmed after hearing screaming and pounding coming from Bonavia's house.
Law enforcement tells us, when cops arrived and knocked, Bonavia was uncooperative, so they forced their way in and found Bonavia and a woman, whose face was battered and bloody.
The woman was in bad enough shape that cops arrested Bonavia for attempted murder. The D.A. later charged him with felony injury on a cohabitant. He was also charged with making criminal threats.
And this isn't Bonavia's first brush with the law. In May 2014, another girlfriend accused him of hitting her with his fists and choking her.
And earlier this month, another millionaire from 'Millionaire Matchmaker' was charged with forcible rape, rape by use of drugs, forcible oral copulation, sexual penetration by a foreign object and attempted sodomy by use of force, and 2 counts of administering drugs to commit rape.
