Former Home Alone and Home Alone 2 actor Devin Ratray played the character, Buzz McCallister. Buzz was the older brother of the film’s star Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin). He was never an especially nice brother as he portrayed the typical older brother that thinks very little of his little brother, especially when he’s in his way during the holidays.

Now, we’re learning Ratray was arrested in Oklahoma City on Wednesday, December 22, 2021, after an altercation with a woman earlier this month.

According to PEOPLE, Ratray was arrested on Wednesday after authorities in Oklahoma City issued a warrant regarding the altercation. Ratray is charged with one count of domestic assault and battery by strangulation and another count of domestic assault and battery, according to online court records.
