GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Wrestler Rich Swann is being held without bail in a Florida jail after he was arrested and charged with battery and false imprisonment.
Swann, who is 26 and a former WWE cruiserweight champion, was arrested Saturday.
According to Gainesville Police, Swann was arguing with his wife, who is also a wrestler. His wife — whose name is Vannarah Riggs but goes by Su Yung — had wrestled earlier. A police report said Swann criticized her performance and the pair began arguing. A witness told police that Riggs jumped out of Swann's slowly moving car.
The report says the witness also saw Swann put Riggs in a headlock and dragged her back to his vehicle.
Swann will appear in court Monday. No attorney is listed in county records.
