WWE 205 Live star Rich Swann has been arrested after reportedly imprisoning and assaulting his wife, Indy wrestling star Su Yung (real name Vannarah Riggs).
From ABC News:
Swann was driving with his wife of nine months, Vannarah Riggs, after she had just been in a match when they got into an argument, the Gainesville Police Department stated in an arrest document.
“[Swann] was critiquing [his wife’s] performance and began getting angry with her,” police said in the document. She “got scared that the argument was going to escalate and got out of the car.”
Swann allegedly stopped his vehicle in the middle of traffic. He gave chase to his wife and yelled for her “to get back in the car,” police said in the arrest warrant.
As she tried to elude Swann, he chased her and when he caught up to her he “grabbed [her] by her arm and then around the neck with his arm.”
“He placed her in a headlock and dragged her back to the vehicle,” the arrest statement said. A witness allegedly observed this and saw Swann “shove her back in the car while she screamed for help,” the arrest document said.
Another witness, the complaint said, saw Swann “driving erratically” and a woman “jump out of the vehicle while it was moving and run away.”
“The car was not in park and continued to roll until it hit a telephone pole,” the complaint said.
Riggs told police she was afraid of Swann because he “has a temper sometimes,” the complaint said.
When confronted with the physical attack on his wife, Swann denied he touched her.
