Ex-WWE and TNA star on Rich Swann's arrest

Ex-WWE and TNA star on Rich Swann's arrest

According to the police report filed yesterday, witnesses saw Swann jump out of a vehicle and chase his wife back into said auto -supposedly they had been arguing over a wrestling match she had been a part of earlier.

Swann's ugly incident with his wife, Vannarah Riggs, earned him charges of battery and kidnapping/false imprisonment.

Former WWE Cruiserweight Champion Rich Swann was arrested this weekend, and his WWE future is in major jeopardy. In the state of Florida kidnapping is a 3rd-degree felony which could send Swan to prison for up to 5 years along with a $5,000 fine if convicted. While Swann can technically contact his wife and even live with her, he can't argue, insult or threaten her. Swann also has to contact the courts within 24 hours of being released. At this time, there has been a judge assigned to his case, but a date has not yet been set for a court hearing.

Swann chased Riggs and grabbed her by the arm and head.

Yung became afraid that the argument was going to escalate, and proceeded to leave the auto.

A witness says Swann then got out of the vehicle and dragged her back.

After being detained, Swann denied physically forcing Riggs back into the auto. Yung stated that Swann is known to have a temper sometimes, and was afraid that it would escalate to physical violence.

The auto was not in park during the confrontation and continued to move until it hit a telephone poll.

WWE soon issued a statement noting that Swann was suspended indefinitely. Swann denied to police that he touched his wife and that Riggs got back into the auto on her own. He also stated that the Global Positioning System was on Yung's phone and he "needed her to come with it".
