Naya Rivera, who’s perhaps best known for her leading role on Glee and her humorous, no-holds-barred memoir, has been arrested and charged with domestic battery in Kanawha County, West Virginia. Per People, an alleged incident occurred between Rivera and her husband, Ryan Dorsey, on Saturday evening, which resulted in a deputy responding to a domestic-violence complaint. Dorsey claimed that Rivera “struck him in the head and face” when they were out for a walk with their two-year-old child. Dorsey also provided video evidence of the alleged incident, which he recorded on his cell phone. A local West Virginia news outlet captured Rivera at the police station when she was getting arraigned.

As People notes, Rivera and Dorsey have had a tumultuous relationship over the past year — they decided to reconcile after proceeding with a divorce. Neither of the actor’s reps has responded for comment.
