WWE star Rich Swann was suspended indefinitely by WWE after being arrested in Gainesville, Fla., late Saturday night.
Swann, who was born in Baltimore and spent much of his childhood here, was with his wife, Vannarah Riggs who goes by her wrestling name of Su Yung, after Yung was part of a show in Gainesville.
According to the police report, they got into an argument over her performance and Yung tried to leave the vehicle. Multiple witnesses reported that Swann used a headlock to drag her back into the car as she screamed for help.
When officers arrived, the report said, she told them that she was afraid of him because he has a temper. Swann denied putting his hands on her and said she got back into the car on her own.
