Report: WWE diva assaulted
Aug 6, 2012 - by Michael Riba
It was reported earlier today by Justin LaBar of wrestlezone.com that WWE Diva Rosa Mendes was arrested at the airport in San Antonio, Texas, the location for tonight’s Raw.
In the report, which was sent in by eyewitnesses to the incident: “Reportedly, Mendes appeared highly intoxicated and was arrested as soon as she got off a flight.”
WWE announcer Scott Stanford tweeted the following which suggests the fact Mendes was arrested is true: “@scottstanford1: #FreeRosa”
In an update to the situation, it appears the intoxication reports were false (or, rather, believed to be false).
LaBar now states: “Diva-Dirt.com is reporting a different version of what happened. They report that they’ve spoken with someone from San Antonio police who stated: “Rosa was the victim of an assault in Las Vegas prior to flying out to San Antonio for tonight’s taping. The report states that after landing in San Antonio, Rosa was spotted visibly upset in a public bathroom at the San Antonio International Airport. A concerned female passerby called the police on her behalf.”
Pictures of her injuries were taken by the SAPD, according to the report, and she was given courtesy transportation to her hotel in San Antonio.
WWE has yet to release an official statement on the situation.
