Rich Swann suspended by WWE following Domestic Violence Arrest
STAMFORD, Conn. — WWE has zero tolerance for matters involving domestic violence, and per our policy, Rich Swann has been suspended indefinitely following his arrest.
As reported by Pro Wrestling Sheet, 205 Live superstar Rich Swann has been arrested on charges of battery & kidnap/false imprisonment of an adult. Swann, 26, was taken into custody at midnight and is currently still incarcerated at Alachua County Jail. The charges in question could potentially lead to five years in prison if Swann were to be convicted.
UPDATE: Due to overwhelming demand, the official arrest report has been released by the Gainesville Police Department. In the report, it’s noted that Swann allegedly critiqued his partner’s (Vannarah Riggs) wrestling performance during a drive, which led to an extended argument. Riggs feared that it was about to turn physical and upon exiting the vehicle he apparently followed her and put her in a headlock before dragging Riggs back into the vehicle.
A lot of you may remember Vannarah Riggs locally from Memphis Wrestling where she competed as Su Yung.
