Glee star Naya Rivera has been arrested and charged with domestic battery after an alleged incident involving her husband Ryan Dorsey.


It is understood that the altercation took place on Saturday night in Kanawha County, West Virginia.


Her husband, Ryan Dorsey told officers that his wife hit him in the head and face. It has been reported that the 34-year-old recorded the incident on his mobile phone.


Local news station WSAZ shared a video of the actress in handcuffs at the station.


They shared that the 30-year-old was released on a $1000 bond.


It is understood that her father-in-law collected her from the station.



The police released a statement following the Glee star’s arrest, “As is always the case in criminal matters, the charge against Mrs Rivera is merely an accusation. She is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty."


Naya and Ryan have experienced many difficult moments throughout their relationship. The pair began dating in 2010 when Naya’s career sky-rocked with her role as Santana Lopez on Glee.


During her early days on the musical-comedy show, Naya discovered she was expecting Ryan’s child but chose to terminate the pregnancy. It is understood that the pair were not together at the time.


Naya revealed that she was nervous about telling Ryan about the abortion, but believed it was the right thing to do.


Naya told Entertainment Tonight, "Telling Ryan about the abortion was really nerve-racking.I didn’t know how he would react."


She vaguely shared, "He ended up saying, you know, one of the best things that any man in that situation could have ever said."

The pair got married in 2014 but filed for divorce last year.


However, last month, the Devious Maids star revealed that they decided to call off their divorce. She told People, “It is what it is, but I’m glad that my family is together.”


Naya and fellow actor Ryan have a two-year-old son named Josey together.
