CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP & NBC17) – Police say the wife of pro wrestler Ric Flair has been charged with assaulting him in their North Carolina home.
In a statement, Flair called the incident an unfortunate disagreement and said he did nothing wrong.
Authorities say officers were called to Flair’s home in south Charlotte on Sunday night. Flair said his wife attacked him after they went out for dinner. He had minor injuries, but refused treatment from paramedics.
Police charged 41-year-old Jacqueline Beems with simple assault. She was released from jail a few hours after her arrest.
The 60-year-old platinum blond grappler nicknamed “The Nature Boy” is currently wrestling for Total Nonstop Action Wrestling after a long career with World Wrestling Entertainment.
In September 2008, Flair’s daughter, 22-year-old Ashley Fliehr, was arrested in Chapel Hill and charged with resisting a police officer. Police were called to an apartment complex about a fight. When officers arrived on scene they found a bloody Ric Flair, Ashley and her boyfriend.
