Witnesses also reported seeing Riggs yelling for help and Swann putting her in a headlock, putting her back in the auto and driving off.

In an update, Swann was released from jail on Sunday and his case has been assigned to a judge.

However, for right now Swann has been released from jail and according to a report from PWInsider-he is technically allowed to contact his wife and can even go home and live with her. He eventually stopped the vehicle, got out and dragged her back into the auto after placing her in a headlock.

The incident occurred while Swann was driving Riggs, an independent wrestler known as Su Yung, following one of her matches when the pair got into an argument.

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

The police report said Swann and Riggs have been married for nine months and together for around five years. Another witness reported that the auto was not placed into park when Swann exited, continuing to roll while he chased after Riggs and crashing into a telephone pole. "WWE has zero tolerance for concerns regarding domestic violence, and per our policy, Rich Swann has been suspended indefinitely post his arrest", WWE said in a statement.

Officers arrived to find a man and his wife in an altercation that had become very physical and left her afraid of being with him.

Swann, a former Cruiserweight Champion, competed in WWE's Cruiserweight division on Raw and on the WWE Network exclusive show, 205 Live. From 2010 to 2011 she wrestled in Florida Championship Wrestling, which was then the WWE's developmental operation.
