Actor Who Played “Home Alone” Brother Arrested in US

Oklahoma City: Alone at home Actor Devin Ratray surrendered to authorities in Oklahoma after being accused of assaulting his girlfriend, police said.

Ratray, who played his older brother Buzz McAllister in the 1990 Christmas film, was released from prison shortly after his incarceration on two complaints of assault and battery in the family on Wednesday (local time) , police said.

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

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

Ratray reportedly got mad at his girlfriend for not charging the women for the autograph cards.

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

“Mr. Ratray denies ever getting a hold of her or doing anything about anything like this,” her attorney Scott Adams said.
