Former WWE cruiserweight champion Rich Swann was arrested and is being held without bail by Gainesville, Florida, police for an alleged domestic violence incident on Saturday night.
The 26-year-old is charged with battery and false imprisonment after police say an argument broke out between Swann and his wife, Vannarah Riggs, also a wrestler who goes by the name Su Yung.
Swann is due to appear in court Monday. WWE officials released a statement announcing the indefinite suspension of Swann and reiterated its zero-tolerance policy on domestic violence.

The couple reportedly began arguing after a performance by Riggs earlier that evening, which witnesses say escalated to Swann using a headlock and Riggs later jumping out of a slow-moving car.
Swann and Riggs have been in a relationship for five years, having married nine months ago.
