Naya River, best known for her role as Santana Lopez in TV show Glee, was arrested over the weekend for domestic battery after an alleged incident involving her husband, Ryan Dorsey.
The 30-year-old actress was arrested after she allegedly assaulted her husband in West Virginia.
Police were called to a home in Chesapeake over a domestic violence complaint. When they arrived, Naya’s husband Ryan Dorsey, 34, said that Rivera had hit him in the head and on the bottom lip while they were on a walk with their child in public; the criminal complaint states.
Dorsey gave the police a cell phone video of the assault, leading to Rivera’s arrest, according to the complaint. The maximum sentence for domestic battery is a year in prison and/or fine up to $500.
Rivera was arraigned on a misdemeanor charge just after midnight and was released on a $1,000 bond.
Rivera and Dorsey got married in 2014. Rivera filed for divorce in 2016, but called off the separation last month.
