Actor who played ‘Home Alone’ brother arrested in the US

Oklahoma City: Home Alone actor Devin Ratray has surrendered to authorities in Oklahoma after he was accused of assaulting his girlfriend, police said.

Ratray, who played older brother Buzz McAllister in the 1990 Christmas movie, was released from jail shortly after his booking on two domestic assault and battery complaints on Wednesday (local time), police said.

Ratray, 44, was in Oklahoma City earlier this month for an event called Buzzed with Buzz, which was promoted as a screening of the film along with a question-and-answer session with Ratray.

Oklahoma City TV station KFOR reported that Ratray and his girlfriend were at a bar when two women approached the couple and asked for Ratray’s autograph. His girlfriend pulled two signed autograph cards out of her purse and gave each woman a card.

Ratray allegedly became angry with his girlfriend because she did not charge the women for the autograph cards.

An affidavit says Ratray choked his girlfriend and said: “This is how you die”. Ratray denies those allegations, KFOR reported.

“Mr Ratray denies he ever laid a hand on her or did anything in regards to anything like that,” his attorney Scott Adams said.
