Naya Rivera arrested for domestic battery, accused of assaulting actor husband in front of toddler

Former Glee star Naya Rivera was arrested on domestic battery charges Saturday night after her actor husband accused her of assaulting him in front of their toddler son.

The New York Post reports that Rivera was arrested at her Kanawha County, Virginia, home at about 9:30 p.m. Saturday. Her husband Ryan Dorsey, who stars on the Showtime series Ray Donovan, reportedly told police that Rivera hit him in the head and the bottom lip while the couple was taking their 2-year-old son for a walk in the neighborhood.

Local news station WSAZ reports that Dorsey documented the assault on cell phone video and shared the footage with police.

Rivera had previously filed for divorce from Dorsey, but reportedly called off divorce proceedings earlier this month amid an apparent reconciliation.

The actress was reportedly arraigned on domestic battery charges after midnight on Sunday, and released on $1,000 bond. Police reportedly told WSAZ that Rivera’s father-in-law picked her up from the precinct.

This is a developing story and will be updated as more information becomes available.
