Glee actor Naya Rivera arrested for domestic battery charges

GLEE actress Naya Rivera has been arrested and charged after she allegedly assaulted her husband during a row - one month after calling of their divorce. Twitter blasted the star for her actions, which led to charges of misdemeanor domestic battery.

Police have confirmed the news to PEOPLE, while a video obtained by WSAZ shows the 30-year-old handcuffed whilst being arraigned by police. "Do you know what you have been charged with?"

Media reports said Rivera was released after her father-in-law paid the $1,000 bail bond.

According to WCHS TV, Ryan claims she hit him over the head and on the lip while they were out for a walk with their child.

The photo is tagged with Dorsey's name and captioned, "Josey is the cuteeeest!"

On Thanksgiving, Rivera posted a smiling and happy photo of the couple's son, Josey.

They have a two-year-old son.

Before Ryan Dorsey, Rivera was engaged to the American rapper Big Sean.

E! News has reached out to a rep for the actress, who starred as Santana Lopez on the hit FOX series from 2009-2015.

Rivera and Dorsey got married in July 2014 and announced in last November that they were heading for a divorce.
