Update On Rich Swann's Release From Jail

Update On Rich Swann's Release From Jail

He gave chase to his wife and yelled for her "to get back in the auto", police said in the arrest warrant.

A witness on the scene said that Riggs was scared and yelling for help as Swann drove away.

Riggs noted that Swann has a temper and feared that the argument would evolve into physical violence, which is why she quickly exited the auto. According to wrestling news site PWInsider, Swann was released from prison December 10 and the case has been assigned to a judge.

The police report said Swann and Riggs have been married for nine months and together for around five years.

She told police she asked Swann to stop the auto and when he wouldn't she jumped out while Swann was still driving. "The vehicle was not in park and continued to roll until it hit a telephone pole", the complaint said.

Until Swann is cleared of all charges, he will not be allowed to return to WWE. As a result, WWE issued a statement suspending Swann, stating, "WWE has zero tolerance for matters involving domestic violence, and per our policy, Rich Swann has been suspended indefinitely following his arrest".

Swann, a former Cruiserweight Champion, competed in WWE's Cruiserweight division on Raw and on the WWE Network exclusive show, 205 Live. Cruiserweight wrestlers need to weigh 205 pounds or less. Riggs told police she was afraid of Swann because he "has a temper sometimes", the complaint said. She now wrestles under the name Su Yung.

Rich Swann has been suspended by the WWE, and should the allegations against him be proven in court, his WWE contract will be terminated. She was released but continued to wrestle for independent companies in various locations, according to her Facebook page.
