Naya Rivera Arrested for Domestic Battery After Allegedly Assaulting Husband Ryan Dorsey

Former Glee star Naya Rivera has been arrested and charged with misdemeanor domestic battery after an alleged altercation with her husband of three years, Ryan Dorsey.

Kanawha County Sheriff's Office spokesperson Brian Humphreys told E! News that a police deputy responded to a call about a domestic violence complaint at a residence in Chesapeake, West Virginia on Saturday and talked to Dorsey, who said Rivera struck him in the head and face. The officer saw minor injuries consistent with Dorsey's statement. Rivera's husband also showed deputies a video made during the incident, which also supported his account of the incident, the spokesperson said. Rivera has not commented.

CNN quoted a criminal complaint as saying that Dorsey told officers that Rivera hit him in the head and on the bottom lip while they were taking their 2-year-old son Josey for a walk down a street. The sheriff's office said in a statement to E! News that the two were arguing over their child.

The actress was arrested and charged with misdemeanor domestic battery. She was arraigned in court and then released on bond. E! News has reached out to a rep for the actress, who starred as Santana Lopez on the hit FOX series from 2009-2015.

The sheriff's office statement added that Dorsey did not require medical attention.



WCHS-TV reporter Kalea Gunderson shared a video of the arraignment on Twitter, which showed the teary actress in front of a judge.

"You have been charged with a misdemeanor domestic battery," said the judge. "Do you know what you have been charged with?"

"Yes, your honor," the star said quietly.

According to Kalea's following tweets, "Criminal complaint states Rivera's husband Ryan Dorsey told police she struck him in the head and bottom lip when they were on a walk with their child."

The reporter then tweeted that Naya was released on bond and picked up by her father-in-law.

CNN reported that during her brief court appearance, Rivera said she plans to hire an attorney.

If convicted, she could be sentenced to a maximum of a year in prison and a fine of up to $500.

'He kicked me in the stomach, I peed on myself. He body-slammed me to the floor twice and told me he would kill me, no one will find my body.: In her journey to recovery, domestic violence survivor Christine R. M. Dennis-Freeman tells it all

The tragic story of Christine R. M. Dennis-Freeman, like that of Agnes Yarlee and Diane Hart before her, has brought the issue of domestic abuse out of the dark unspoken place it thrives and into the open.
It's horrendous that it takes the death of women, or an attempt to kill women, to get a serious debate  on the issue of domestic abuse. Discussing domestic violence in our society is a real taboo and most men within the Liberian society, don't even find the topic worth their time, as compared to discussing sports, politics and corruption. 
But these women mention above are just the tip of the iceberg.


Defying the odds, Mrs. Dennis-Freeman refuses to keep her mouth shut and go with the flow of the Liberian society.  She courageously sat in a wheel chair up to 1:30am, sharing her story with C Liberia Clearly.  In her own words, she walked us through the day that led to her horrific story.
