Report: Home Alone actors should stay away from Oklahoma City

10:35 AM EST on December 27, 2021

Here's some free advice to Joe Pesci, Catherina O'Hara, Daniel Stern, and any other actor who had a large or minor role in Home Alone: Stay away from Oklahoma City!

17 years after Macaulay Culkin was arrested on drug charges, Devin Ratray – the actor who played the mean big brother in Home Alone – was arrested on a variety of domestic assault charges after he allegedly choked and threatened to kill his girlfriend in a Bricktown hotel room.

Here are details via KFOR:

The actor who portrayed Buzz McCallister in the beloved Christmas films Home Alone and Home Alone 2: Lost in New York turned himself in to police Wednesday morning.

Devin Ratray faces charges for allegedly battering and attempting to strangle his girlfriend while they were in Oklahoma City earlier this month.

“Mr. Ratray denies he ever laid a hand on her or did anything in regards to anything like that,” said Oklahoma attorney Scott Adams...

Give Scott Adams some credit. Whether it's a serial rapist cop or a washed-up child actor from the 1990s, he doesn't discriminate when it comes to defending men who (allegedly) abuse and terrorize women.

I guess Ratray was in the 405 for a stupid event called "Buzzed with Buzz," a real-life thing where people pay money to play a Home Alone drinking game with a washed-up actor from the movie:

How in the world do you play a Home Alone drinking game? Do you have to chug a glass of egg nog whenever a bag guy slips on marbles, or chug a bottle of aftershave whenever Kevin robs the pizza delivery driver?

After Buzzed with Buzz, Ratray and his girlfriend went to Bricktown for a nightcap. According to KFOR, he became enraged after she gave away a couple of autograph cards at Coyote Ugly in Bricktown, which is apparently a club that still exists in 2021.

"The girlfriend claimed Ratray became angry because she did not charge two women for his autograph cards. They argued and she left Coyote Ugly, leaving him inside as she walked to the hotel they were staying at, Hyatt Place Oklahoma City, according to the affidavit."

Serious question – Who would pay any amount of money for an autograph from Devin Ratray??? Actually, I think the answer is "People who go to Coyote Ugly in Bricktown."

Anyway, you can read more disturbing details about the assault over at If her claims are true, and based on Devin's general look and demeanor they probably are, let's hope Buzz gets sent to jail for a very long time.
