Former WWE Cruiserweight Champion Rich Swann had all charges against him dismissed on Thursday. He was previously arrested on allegations of false imprisonment and battery.

According to a report released by the Gainesville police, Swann was arrested following an altercation with his wife, Su Yung.

He is currently suspended by the WWE.

According to a new report from PWInsider, the decision to clear him of all charges was as a result of prosecutors determining that there was “insufficient evidence” to move forward with a strong case.

Swann was slated to match up with Drew Gulak in a match to determine the No. 1 contender for a Cruiserweight title match in early December. Oddly enough, at the time, the winner would be set to face Enzo Amore, who is currently in legal trouble himself. The WWE has since released Amore.

Swann signed with WWE’s NXT product after a standout appearance in the Cruiserweight Classic in 2016. He’s wrestled all over the world, and dealt with multiple tragedies including both of his parents dying before he turned 17.

Swann defeated Brian Kendrick on the first episode of 205 Live to win his first Cruiserweight title.

At the time of this writing, it is not yet known how this will — or won’t, for that matter — alter his status with the WWE.
