WWE Superstar Rich Swann arrested

WWE Superstar Rich Swann was arrested early Sunday morning and charged with domestic battery according to the Gainsville Police Department.

According to the police reports, Swann was heavily criticising his wife after one of her performances. Moments later, Swann was seen dragging his wife in a headlock out of their vehicle. His wife later jumped out the car while moving and Swann jumped out the car moments later. Due to this, Swann’s car struck a telephone pole.

When talking to the police, Swann’s wife feared that her conversation with Swann would turn violent. In his defense, Swann told police that he “never physically touched her”.

WWE made a brief statement about the incident on Sunday Morning. Swann is now “suspended indefinitely” due to WWE”s strict zero-tolerance policy for domestic violence. This incident was rather shocking for the fan favorite from Baltimore, Maryland. Swann instantly gained WWE fan interest after his strong performances in the WWE Cruiserweight Classic and the newly formed Cruiserweight Division. On November 21st, 2016; Swann won the Cruiserweight title on 205 Live. His win was surely a memorable one.
