Jim Marchese, season six star of Real Housewives of New Jersey, was arrested for a domestic disturbance on a plane arriving in the Los Angeles International Airport.

“At the request of officers, a male suspect and a female victim left the aircraft,” the police told E! News. “Additional questioning revealed the suspect had grabbed the victim by the throat and made threats against her. Suspect James Marchese was arrested and transported to LAPD Pacific Division where he was booked.”

According to E! News, Amber Marchese, Jim’s wife, snapped a black and white selfie roughly 30 minutes before the incident happened. She captioned the picture, “Red eye. Yup,” but has since deleted the post.

Amber, who had suffered from cancer, found out last April that the cancer had returned. “You just have to go on with everyday life. I always say, it’s not a matter of if something is going to happen, it’s a matter of how we handle it,” Amber told People in 2015 after her diagnosis. “I feel at peace. I feel determined. I feel like everything is going to be okay.”

Jim Marchese was charged with domestic violence and his bail is $50,000. He is due back in court on May 11.
