Former WWE wrestler Albert Del Rio was formally indicted on charges of kidnapping and sexual assault on Friday, according to multiple reports.

Del Rio was arrested earlier this year after assaulting a woman on multiple occasions. The most recent incident came on May 3, when Del Rio threatened to take the victim’s son and “drop him in the middle of the road somewhere.”

Via TMZ:

“The accuser — who cops say only speaks Spanish — claimed Del Rio smashed her cell phone, her laptop and attempted to burn her passport in an attack that started at around 10 PM on May 3 and lasted until around 2:30 PM on May 4.

The woman also claims Del Rio attacked her, causing multiple injuries and left her, “feeling woozy and dizzy from the hits to her head.”

There’s more … the accuser also claims Del Rio choked her and at one point “shoved a sock into her mouth, to keep [her] quiet.”

The woman says, “When the sock was in her mouth, she could not breathe.”

She also claimed Del Rio also sexually assaulted her with his penis and other body parts.

Del Rio was the first Mexican-born world champion in WWE history. He left WWE in 2014 before returning in 2015. In 2016, Del Rio signed with Impact Wrestling.

Felony aggravated assault carries a maximum sentence of 99 years in prison. The sexual assault charges carry a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison.
