A former backup dancer for Ricky Martin’s 2011 M.A.S. Tour was ordered by a Miami-Dade judge on Wednesday to stay away from a former girlfriend after being arrested on domestic violence charges.

According to the arrest report, the man, Sherhan Rodriguez, became enraged at girlfriend Magdielle Bracoviche after he found photos and text messages he didn't like on her cell phone while they were at Blue Martini in the Brickell area.

Police said that while he and his girlfriend got into her car, he slapped her numerous times, almost causing her to crash as she was driving.

Rodriguez was represented by former Casey Anthony attorney Jose Baez; Bracoviche was represented by Miami attorney Alex Strassman, with the firm of GrayRobinson.
