Former Glee star Naya Rivera has been arrested for alleged domestic battery of her husband.

According to the local news channel WSAZ, Rivera was arrested at a home in Kanawha County, West Virginia, on Saturday evening.

Deputies told the station that when they arrived at the home they spoke to Rivera’s husband of three years, Ryan Dorsey, who claims that Rivera struck him in the head and bottom lip during a walk with their child.


Rivera was arraigned early Sunday morning before being released on a personal recognisance bond.

According to deputies, she was collected by her Father-in-Law from the court house.

Last month, it was revealed that Rivera would no longer be moving forward with her divorce from Dorsey,  originally filed in November 2016.


Rivera is best known for playing cheerleader Santana Lopez in Glee between 2009 and 2015. Earlier this year she starred as a guest judge on RuPaul’s Drag Race.
