She called the cops and claimed Ronnie was the culprit. Cops named Ronnie a person of interest.  

As for Ronnie's police report, we're told his motivation is that he wants Jen to get professional help. He's also worried about the safety of their 8-month-old child. 

We're told Ronnie took photos of his injuries and submitted them to cops. We're also told cops took additional pics Thursday at the police station because the injuries were still visible.
