Naya Rivera was arrested and charged with domestic battery on Saturday night after her husband Ryan Dorsey claimed the former “Glee” actress hit him in the head and bottom lip, Gossip Cop confirms. According to Dorsey, they had an argument while taking their 2-year-old son Josey on a walk in Chesapeake, West Virginia. After having spoken to the police and turning over video Dorsey had allegedly taken with his phone of Rivera striking him, the actress was picked up by the cops.

Part of Rivera’s arraignment was caught on camera by WCHS, the local ABC affiliate in West Virginia. In the footage, the actress can been seen in handcuffs and being brought before a Kanawha County magistrate (see below). Rivera’s bail was set at $1,000, and she was released on personal recognizance. Dorsey grew up in Chesapeake, and it was his father who picked up Rivera after she was charged with domestic battery.

As Gossip Cop has previously reported, Rivera and Dorsey’s relationship has had its fair share of drama. Just a few months after her engagement to Big Sean ended in 2014, Rivera married Dorsey. It was later revealed that Dorsey and Rivera had previously dated and then broken up in 2010 , as she was becoming famous for her work as Santana Lopez on “Glee.” Not long after her split, Rivera discovered she was pregnant with Dorsey’s baby, which she then aborted.

Then, following two years of marriage, Rivera filed for divorce from Dorsey in November 2016. At the time, she and Dorsey issued a joint statement that read in part, “After much consideration, we have made the decision to end our marriage. Our priority is and always will be our beautiful son that we share together.”

But in October 2017, Rivera filed a motion to dismiss her divorce. And in subsequent weeks, she and Dorsey had been spotted together. It appears they were in Chesapeake for Thanksgiving. Gossip Cop has reached out to a rep for the actress for a comment. We will update as we learn more about Rivera’s arrest for domestic battery in West Virginia.
