Rich Swann Arrested For Kidnapping, Suspended By WWE

Police say the newlyweds were inside a vehicle when Swann criticized Riggs' performance. Yung, feeling the argument was "going to escalate", attempted to flee and got out of the auto. Swann reportedly left the auto and pursued Riggs, allegedly grabbing her by the arm and putting her in a headlock before placing her back in his vehicle.

The complaint states that Swann, after being read his Miranda rights, told officers he did not grab his wife and put her in the auto.

"WWE has zero tolerance for matters involving domestic violence, child abuse and sexual assault".

The former one-time WWE Cruiserweight Champion was arrested in Florida and is due to appear in court Monday. What's insane is Swann's vehicle was still moving when he hopped out to chase down Riggs, and it ended up hitting a telephone pole.

Police stopped Swann about a mile away from the altercation and placed him under arrest.

At some point, according to the arrest report, she got out of the vehicle saying she was getting scared because Swann was becoming more angry at her.

The witness also reportedly saw Swann put his wife in a headlock and drag her back to his vehicle.

When confronted with the physical attack on his wife, Swann denied that he touched her.

The couple is recently married; they Wednesday nine months ago and have been in a relationship for about 5 years, according to the report. The kidnapping charge against Swann is a felony, and carries a maximum penalty of 5 years in state prison. Swann was supposed to wrestle Drew Gulak on Raw tomorrow night in a match to determine who would face Enzo Amore for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship.

Swann was arrested by Gainesville PD following the incident, and subsequently charged with kidnapping, false imprisonment, and battery. Swann was also charged with Battery (touching or strike), a first degree misdemeanor that is punishable with up to one year in jail or 12 months probation and a $1,000 fine, if convicted.
