Current Global Force Wrestling champion Alberto El Patron, best known as Alberto Del Rio during his time with WWE, is currently under investigation for domestic violence battery. No arrests have been made, and there has been no mention of who the alleged victim was in this incident.
PWInsider first broke the story of Alberto being detained at an airport by police. They reached out to the Orlando police department and received this official response:
“There was an incident at Orlando International Airport at about 3 p.m. Sunday involving Jose Rodriguez (DOB 5/25/1977) The reported incident was a domestic violence battery, and it is still under investigation. No arrests have been made as of this time, but the case remains open. That is all the information we have for release at this time.”
TMZ Sports further reported that a witness said “There was an altercation,” and that TMZ was told Alberto “allegedly roughed up a female companion.”
Del Rio is quite famously in a relationship with WWE Superstar Paige, but there has been no confirmation or indication that she was the “female companion” involved in this incident, although witnesses claim she was spotted at the airport with Del Rio on Sunday at the time of his being detained.
Global Force Wrestling released an official statement to Pro Wrestling Sheet on Monday regarding the situation.
“Global Force Wrestling takes all legal situations very seriously and is looking into this matter. GFW is a privately-held company and will thoroughly investigate this incident and fully cooperate with law enforcement.”
