Police: Wrestler Ric Flair, wife involved in fight at Charlotte condo

Wrestler Ric Flair and his wife were involved in an altercation at the couple's SouthPark condo Monday night, according to a Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department report.

Police say at around 9:40 p.m. Flair's wife, Jacqueline Bains Beems, assaulted the former professional wrestling champion, whose real name is Richard Morgan Fliehr.

The incident took place at the pair's condo in the 4000 block of Sharon Road near SouthPark Mall, but no one was arrested or transported to the hospital, police said.

Beems was arrested in February of 2010 for allegedly assaulting Flair during a domestic dispute at the couple's home in the Stonecroft neighborhood of south Charlotte.

In that incident, police said Flair's wife punched him in the face. Beems was charged with assault, while Flair received minor injuries and was not transported to the hospital. Those charges were dropped by the district attorney in July 14 due to a lack of evidence.

Beems was also arrested and charged with DWI and reckless driving on March 31, 2012.

Flair and Beems met in 2004 in Chicago and dated until they married on November 11, 2010. Each was married previously.

Flair has been involved in other police incidents. In September 2008, he received cuts and bruises and his 23-year-old daughter was arrested in connection with a dispute that also involved a 22-year-old man at a Raleigh apartment complex.

And in November 2005, Flair was charged in connection with an incident on Interstate 485 in south Charlotte. In that case, he was accused of grabbing another motorist by the neck.
