Adjust Comment Print

Swann, who is 26 and a former WWE cruiserweight champion, was arrested Saturday. He allegedly screamed and chased after Yung, trying to get her back into the vehicle, but she told him she had no desire to, two witnesses corroborated in their statements to police. He placed her in a headlock and dragged her back to their vehicle. The charges being filed against Rich Swann are "battery and kidnap/false imprisonment of an adult". His wife - whose name is Vannarah Riggs but goes by Su Yung - had wrestled earlier in the evening in the northwest Florida city.

Powell's POV: Swann denied getting physical with Riggs despite the eye witness reports.

Riggs told police she was afraid of Swann because he "has a temper sometimes", the complaint said. She exited the auto again, causing Swann to jump out, and pursue her again. He will appear in court Monday.

He reiterated that Israel holds Hamas , the terror group that runs Gaza , responsible for any attacks coming out of the enclave. The army did not believe there were any casualties inside the tunnel after it had been demolished, he told journalists.

When WWE chose to bring back the cruiserweight division to its main roster - and subsequently create the show 205 Live for the WWE Network - Swann was chosen to become a major focus, defeating then-champion Brian Kendrick for the cruiserweight title on the first episode of 205 Live.

Per Gagnon, he was scheduled to face Drew Gulak with the top contender spot and a match against Enzo Amore on the line.

Swann, a rising star in WWE, has been suspended following the incident as per a zero tolerance domestic violence policy. The Wrap reports that Swann was arrested in Gainesville, Florida, around midnight on Sunday morning. Swann was also charge with battery (touching/strike), which carries a possible penalty of up to a year in prison or 12 months probation and a $1,000 fine.
