Naya Rivera was charged with domestic battery after an alleged dispute with her husband Ryan Dorsey, reports said.


Naya Rivera was arrested in West Virginia on Saturday and a charge of domestic battery after she allegedly got into an argument with her husband Ryan Dorsey, reports said.

The 30-year-old actress was arrested around 9:30 a.m. Saturday and charged just after midnight on a domestic battery, WSAZ reported. The authorities were called to the couple’s home in Kanawha County after Rivera reportedly struck Dorsey in the head and lower lip while they are taking their 2-year-old son Josey on a walk, according to the indictment.

Dorsey, 34, allegedly told the police about the incident and showed them a mobile phone video recording of the alleged abuse.

Rivera was released on a $1,000 PR bond and retrieved from the court by her father-in-law, according to WSAZ.

Rivera and Dorsey began dating in 2010 but broke when she started filming for the popular TV show “Glee.” They later came back together when Rivera broke off her engagement with rapper Big Sean in 2014, and the couple married just three months later.

The couple’s relationship had rough spots in the past year. Rivera filed for divorce from Dorsey in November 2016, but he called it off last month, People reported.
