Ric Flair Assaulted by Wife for Second Time, Calls Police
Professional wrestler Ric Flair reportedly called police on Monday after his wife assaulted him in their home. This is the second time that Flair has called authorities and requested help in dealing with his abusive wife.
According to reports, Flair called police to request help in dealing with his wife, Jacqueline Bains Beems, who had allegedly begun assaulting him. Neither was arrested, and no one was taken to the hospital after the incident. It's the second time that police have been called to assist in an altercation between the couple.
In 2010, Beems was arrested for assault after punching Flair in the face. She was taken in to the station and charged, but the district attorney dropped the charges due to a lack of evidence. After that incident, Flair's agent released the following statement:
"Ric and his wife had an unfortunate disagreement late (Sunday) night, which led to his wife being arrested and charged with assault. Ric has done nothing wrong. Ric finds this incident unsettling and is committed to correcting any issues in his personal life."
The couple has been together since 2004, when they first met. They married in 2010, and their relationship has, at times, been quite volatile.
Flair is a professional wrestler who works for the World Wresting Entertainment (WWE) industry. He has a 40-year history of working in the wrestling industry, for such popular companies as the WWE, National Wrestling Alliance (NWA), World Championship Wrestling (WCW) and Total Nonstop Action (TNA) Wrestling.
He was the very first WCW champion, after being awarded the title in 1991. According to reports, Flair has won over 30 different titles and has been inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame twice, which is a first for the industry.
He was initially inducted as an individual, for his role as Ric "Nature Boy" Flair. Then in 2012 he was again inducted as part of the quartet The Four Horsemen.
