WWE suspend Rich Swann following domestic battery and false imprisonment charges

A WWE professional wrestler has been arrested and charged with battery of his wife.

In a police report filed Sunday, witnesses stated seeing Swann jump out of a vehicle he was driving and ultimately chased fellow female wrestler and wife of nine months Vannarah Riggs (who goes by Su Yung) back into his auto after an argument over her earlier wrestling match. He allegedly screamed and chased after Yung, trying to get her back into the vehicle, but she told him she had no desire to, two witnesses corroborated in their statements to police. When she did not, he grabbed her, put her in a headlock and dragged her back inside the vehicle while she was screaming for help, according to the arrest report.

The star of 205 Live is suspected of Kidnapping and False Imprisonment. After a show Riggs performed at in Gainesville, the report says Swann was getting angry with Riggs after making remarks on her performance.

For his part, Swann apparently told police that he did not touch Riggs, and only went after her after she left the auto due to her phone Global Positioning System containing the directions home. She added that she was trying to get away from him so the argument wouldn't escalate into physical violence.

Trump Wants Washington Post Reporter Fired Over Misleading Tweet
Trump posted a screengrab of Weigel's Tweet on Saturday, along with photos of him standing in front of a packed arena. Weigel screwed up, deleted his tweet when he realized it, and later apologized when asked.

According to the AP, Swann is being held without bail and will appear in court on Monday.

Hours after the incident, the WWE announced that it had suspended Swann because of its "zero tolerance policy". He chased her, police said, but she refused to get back in the vehicle. The vehicle, driverless, rolled until it hit a telephone pole. The kidnapping charge against Swann is a felony, and carries a maximum penalty of 5 years in state prison.

An Alachua County jail representative told ABC News that Swann made an appearance before a judge and is set to be released on his own recognizance on Sunday.
