Flair’s ex-wife turns herself in

By Steve Lyttle

Jacqueline Baines Beems, former wife of professional wrestling figure Ric Flair, turned herself in to authorities Tuesday morning in Charlotte and was released on bond after being charged with a misdemeanor, her attorney says. Beems, 44, of Charlotte, ans

The website TMZ.com reports that the charge dates back to last October, when Beems is accused of making a series of phone calls to Wendy Barlow Kidder, Flair’s girlfriend.

Flair and Beems made news in February 2010, a few months after they were married, over an altercation at their home in south Charlotte. Beems was charged with misdemeanor assault after the two got into a fight. The charges later were dropped by police for lack of evidence.

Another incident was reported in June 2012, at the couple’s SouthPark condo. A Charlotte-Mecklenburg police report said the two had another fight, but there were no injuries and no charges filed.

Flair and Kidder recently were featured in the ABC-TV reality show “Celebrity Wife Swap.”
