Further Details On The Arrest Of Rich Swann

Former WWE Cruiserweight Champion Rich Swann is now in the custody of the Gainesville, Florida police, spending the night in jail after being arrested late Saturday night on charges of battery and false imprisonment.

According to Gainesville Police, Swann was arguing with his wife, who is also a wrestler.

For his part, Swann apparently told police that he did not touch Riggs, and only went after her after she left the vehicle due to her phone Global Positioning System containing the directions home. When arrested, Swann told police that she got in the vehicle on her own.

Witnesses say that they saw Riggs jump out of a slow moving auto then Swann got out, put Riggs in a headlock and dragged her back into the vehicle. The Vic told the Def she did not want to get back in the auto as she continued to walk away.

WWE is yet to comment on the arrest, although given the situation and the nature of the arrest the chances are Swann will be suspended under the company's domestic violence policy.

Swann is a former champion for the WWE's Cruiserweight division.

There was more the one witness to the event, which continued as Swann also exited the vehicle and let it continue to roll (resulting in the auto hitting a telephone pole, according to one witness).

The arrest report said it happened over this weekend in Gainesville, Florida.

Swann stopped in the middle of traffic and Riggs "jumped out", the report said.

After failing to get her to return to the vehicle verbally, the report claims that the WWE 205 Live star left the auto, grabbing Yung and putting her in a headlock to take her to the auto physically as she screamed for assitance.

When confronted with the physical attack on his wife, Swann denied that he touched her. Swann was arrested and held in jail on charges of battery and false imprisonment (kidnapping).

Swann and Yung have been married for nine months after being in a romantic relationship for about five years.

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

Rich Swann was originally scheduled to face Drew Gulak in a number one contenders match for the Cruiserweight Championship on this week's episode of Monday Night Raw, but it doesn't look like that will be happening.

WWE has suspended Swann as WWE has zero tolerance for incidents like these. WWE did the right thing by suspending Swann right away.
