WWE Rich Swann arrested on battery, false imprisonment charges in Gainesville

WWE Superstar Rich Swann Arrested for Kidnapping and False Imprisonment

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

Powell's POV: Swann denied getting physical with Riggs despite the eye witness reports.

Swann told police that he never grabbed her, and that she got into the vehicle on her own.

The couple reportedly began an argument earlier in the evening which witness's have said escalated to Swann using a headlock and Riggs later jumping out of a slow-moving auto. Suddenly, they got into an argument, and when she "got scared that the argument was going to escalate", she jumped out of the vehicle Swann was driving.

ProWrestlingSheet has also confirmed via a statement from WWE that Rich Swann has been suspended indefinitely following his arrest. What's insane is Swann's vehicle was still moving when he hopped out to chase down Riggs, and it ended up hitting a telephone pole.

The report says the witness also saw Swann put Riggs in a headlock and dragged her back to his vehicle.

Wilshere's chances of catching Gareth Southgate's eye are also slim unless he starts playing regular Premier League football. Of course we only come with things when they are done, but most of the time it's a year and a half - or more - of work'.

Swann's wife reportedly ran from the auto and Swann emerged to follow her while yelling for his wife to return to the vehicle.

An eyewitness reported that Riggs was seen to be pounding on the car's window, screaming for help as Swann drove away.

Swann and Yung have been married for nine months after being in a romantic relationship for about five years. He has been charged with battery and the kidnapping or false imprisonment of an adult. The former charge is third-degree felony, while the second is a first-degree misdemeanor.

The WWE's Domestic Violence policy from their corporate website says that upon arrest, superstars will be suspended.

Swann will likely be placed on immediate suspension after the arrest and if he is convicted will have his contract immediately terminated in line with WWE's policy on Domestic Violence.

Per Gagnon, he was scheduled to face Drew Gulak with the top contender spot and a match against Enzo Amore on the line.
