Rich Swann has been suspended indefinitely by the WWE following an arrest Saturday night in Gainesville, Florida.

The report said the witness also saw Swann put Riggs in a headlock and dragged her back to his vehicle. When she did not, he grabbed her, put her in a headlock and dragged her back inside the vehicle while she was screaming for help, according to the arrest report. He has been charged with battery and the kidnapping or false imprisonment of an adult.

In the statement the alleged victim, Swann's wife and professional wrestler Su Yung is referred to as Vic and the defendant is referred to as Def. A police report said Swann criticized her performance and the pair began arguing.

Yung later stated Swann "has a temper sometimes" and she fled the situation because she feared physical violence.

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. He is scheduled to appear in court on Monday. He chased her, police said, but she refused to get back in the vehicle.

It'll be an eight-episode season that'll start production early '18, and it will not involve Kevin Spacey ", Sarandos said. The political drama was put on hold in the wake of sexual harassment allegations against the Oscar-winning actor.

The kidnapping and false imprisonment charges could have Swann doing up to five years in prison and paying a $5,000 fine, as its a third-degree felony.

Despite claims by Swann that he did not physically touch Riggs, with the details that have been revealed about the incident, it does not look good for the high-flying, dancing WWE entertainer.

Swann was due to battle Drew Gulak in a number one contenders match for the Cruiserweight title.
