GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - WWE has indefinitely suspended wrestler Rich Swann following his arrest on battery and false imprisonment charges in Florida.
In a statement released Sunday, the wrestling entertainment company said it "has zero tolerance for matters involving domestic violence."
Swann, a former WWE cruiserweight champion, was arrested Saturday.
According to Gainesville Police, Swann was arguing with his wife, who is also a wrestler. His wife - whose name is Vannarah Riggs, but goes by Su Yung - had wrestled earlier in the day. A police report said Swann criticized her performance and the pair began arguing.
A witness told police that Riggs jumped out of Swann's slowly moving car. The report says the witness also saw Swann put Riggs in a headlock and dragged her back to his vehicle.
Swann will appear in court Monday.
