WWE star Adam Rose (Raymond Leppan) appeared before a Florida court on Thursday morning after being held in custody since his arrest on Wednesday morning where he was booked on alleged charges of tampering with a witness and battery domestic violence with his wife.
A police report revealed that Rose was arrested after “smacking the phone away” from his wife when she placed a phone call to 911 after he allegedly grabbed her face during an argument. “Marital problems” was among the things listed as part of the police report this past Wednesday.
According to a report by TMZ, a judge had planned to place a restraining order against Rose on Thursday, preventing him from any contact with his wife. However, Rose’s wife “begged the court to reconsider” stating they have a special needs child that needs both parents. A lawyer for Rose argued his actions were “not aggressive or painful” and instead “more of a passionate, ‘Hey, let’s talk about this.” The judge revealed a previous domestic violence incident back in March and expressed a concern over a pattern of abusive behavior. Despite the example, the judge held off on the restraining order and set a low bond of $1,000. Rose is expected to be released from custody by the end of the day on Thursday. He’s been ordered to seek counseling once a week until his next court date in June and remains suspended from WWE indefinitely.
