Former WWE Superstar Alberto Del Rio, also known in other promotions as Alberto El Patron, is being investigated for domestic violence, a report by TMZ Sports on July 10 said.
According to the report, Del Rio, who’s an eight-time world champion between American and Mexican wrestling, was at a Florida airport July 9 around 3 p.m. when he and a “female companion” got into an argument. The Orlando Police Department was contacted after Del Rio allegedly “roughed up” the companion.
Witnesses told TMZ that Del Rio and the woman were in the middle of an argument and things escalated, leading to the cops being called.
Although he’s being investigated for the incident, charges have not yet been filed and he was not arrested. Police didn’t release the name of the victim, though witnesses said that Del Rio was with current WWE Superstar and fiancee Paige at the airport “for a while.”
Del Rio currently wrestles for Impact Wrestling and debuted on an episode earlier this year under the name Alberto El Patron. He entered himself into the heavyweight championship picture and won the title, though he was forced to relinquish it due to a controversial finish.
