WWE: Former Cruiserweight Champion Rich Swann Arrested

11 December, 2017

Swann, who is 26 and a former WWE cruiserweight champion, was arrested Saturday.

According to cops, Swann was driving his newlywed wife, Vannarah Riggs, back home after a match of hers in Florida when they got into an argument in the auto, which got heated.

However, Swann's temper got the best of him and he put his own wife in a headlock and forced her inside of his auto.

Riggs exited the auto that Swann was driving, and Swann grabbed her by the neck, leading to Riggs screaming for help and then beating on the vehicle window and trying to exit the vehicle again once he had her back inside.

WWE has suspended Swann as WWE has zero tolerance for incidents like these. The charge of false imprisonment is a felony. Swann is married to indie wrestler Su Yung.

Powell's POV: Swann denied getting physical with Riggs despite the eye witness reports. Swan chased after Yung and yelled for her to return to the auto, but she refused and began to walk away.

The two actresses marked their Hollywood film industry debut this year - xXx: Xander Cage (Deepika) and Baywatch (Priyanka). The actress' this big secret was leaked by her Quantico co-star Alan Powell who shared a picture on Instagram.

A witness told police that Riggs jumped out of Swann's slowly moving auto.

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.

According to the Mirror (h/t Joshua Gagnon of WrestlingInc), Swann could be sentenced to up to five years in prison if convicted on the kidnapping charge.

Swann is scheduled to face Drew Gulak in a No. 1 contenders match on Raw on Monday.

As of this writing Rich Swann is still now incarcerated in the Alachua County Jail.

After the arrest, Swann said he never physically touched her, saying they were just trying to get home and she had the phone with the Global Positioning System.
