Home Alone star Devin Ratray hospitalised before domestic violence trial

Home Alone star Devin Ratray's domestic violence trial was delayed due to his hospitalisation.

The actor, who played Macaulay Culkin's older brother Buzz in the hit movie had been in "critical condition", a family member told TMZ.

Devin, 47, is now "back home resting on doctor's orders".

Jury selection for his domestic violence trial was due to start on Monday. This has now been delayed until February.

Two years ago, Devin was charged with allegedly punching and strangling his girlfriend before warning her that she was going to "die".

An affidavit obtained by local news outlet KFOR alleged he drank a bottle of wine and shots at a steakhouse before downing at least 10 more shots at a bar.

According to the affidavit, when he returned to the room with his girlfriend - who is unnamed - he allegedly pushed her on the bed, holding one hand over her mouth with the other pressed down on her throat.

He allegedly said, "This is how you die."

Police told Fox News that Devin "turned himself in" and was arrested on a warrant for two charges of domestic assault and battery.

He denies the allegations and pleaded not guilty in February 2022.

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