WWE superstar and former 205 Live cruiserweight champion Rich Swann has been arrested and charged with battery and kidnapping.

According to police, the 26-year-old wrestler had just finished performing in downtown Gainesville when he got into an argument with his wife of nine months, Vannarah Riggs, who is also a pro wrestler. When arrested, Swann told police that she got in the vehicle on her own.

The couple reportedly began an argument earlier in the evening which witness's have said escalated to Swann using a headlock and Riggs later jumping out of a slow-moving vehicle.

Witnesses told police the vehicle was not in park during all this and continued to roll until it hit a telephone pole. Gainesville police released an arrest report which stated that Swann and his girlfriend Vanessa Riggs engaged in a dispute following a show in the city. Swann was taken into custody by the Gainesville, Florida police department in the early morning hours. Swann grabbed her and forced her back into the auto where she began screaming for help, states the report.

Riggs told police she was afraid the argument would "turn into physical violence" because Swann has a "temper".
