WWE Superstar Rich Swann arrested for false imprisonment, battery


Dec. 11 (UPI) — WWE Superstar Rich Swann was arrested in Gainesville, Fla. Saturday night where he was charged with falsely imprisoning and battering his wife, Vannarah Riggs.

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.

“[Swann] was critiquing [his wife’s] performance and began getting angry with her,” the Gainesville Police Department said in an arrest document that was released on Twitter.

Riggs then exited the car in the middle of traffic which led to Swann grabbing her by the arm and then around her neck. “He placed her in a headlock and dragged her back to the vehicle,” the arrest statement continues and cites witnesses proclaiming that the wrestler “shoved her back in the car while she screamed for help.”

The car was not in park during the confrontation and continued to move until it hit a telephone poll. Swann denied to police that he touched his wife and that Riggs got back into the car on her own.

WWE soon issued a statement noting that Swann was suspended indefinitely.

“WWE has zero tolerance for matters involving domestic violence,

Red Sox pitcher Steven Wright arrested on domestic assault charge


Red Sox right-hander Steven Wright was arrested at his home in Tennessee on a domestic assault charge on Friday night, according to Evan Drellich of NBC Sports.

Wright’s family released a statement through their lawyer. From Drellich:

“On Friday night, Steven was arrested at our home following a verbal argument, and the police charged him with domestic assault. Although he said things he deeply regrets, he did not raise his hand at anyone during the incident, and the situation was purely emotional. We are working together as a family to make our relationships stronger, and we ask that you respect our privacy as we do so.”

The Red Sox addressed the arrest with a statement Sunday night.

“We are aware of the incident involving Steven. This is certainly a matter that the Red Sox take very seriously. It is my understanding that both local police and Major League Baseball are looking into this and for that reason, the club won’t have any further comment at this time.”

Five players have been suspended under MLB’s relatively new domestic violence policy: Hector Olivera (82 games), Jose Reyes (51 games), Aroldis Chapman (30

Georgia woman describes growing up in mom’s violent cult


Deep down, she always knew something wasn’t right on the north Florida farm where she grew up. Joy Fluker wanted the answers to the questions she’d always had. But she’d always really known the truth.

Fluker’s parents founded the House of Prayer for All People and invited others to join them at the rural compound, promising a better life through Biblical teachings. But those who came left with a dark secret they would keep for four decades. Fluker’s mother — known as Mother Anna — physically tortured the residents, leading to serious injuries and the death of at least one child, according to police.

Earlier this year, Fluker did what had once been unthinkable, she reported the behavior of her mother, Anna Elizabeth Young, to police. She was one of several people to come forward and in November a Florida grand jury indicted the 75-year-old on a charge of premeditated murder in the death of a young boy known as Moses. Young was arrested the next day at the Cobb County home where she had lived more than 15 years. Authorities labeled her a “cult leader.” Police believe countless others were victims
