(Newser) – Wrestler Rich Swann is being held without bail in a Florida jail after he was arrested and charged with battery and false imprisonment. Swann, who is 26 and a former WWE cruiserweight champion, was arrested Saturday, per the AP. According to Gainesville Police, Swann was arguing with his wife, who is also a wrestler. His wife—whose name is Vannarah Riggs but who goes by Su Yung—had wrestled earlier. 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 drag her back to his vehicle. Swann will appear in court Monday. (Read more WWE stories.)
