On Saturday night, the Kanawha County Sheriff confirmed to E! News that the 30-year-old actress was arrested that night and was waiting to be arraigned.
Local outlet WSAZ first reported the news and stated, “Investigators say she’s charged with domestic battery. They tell us it involves her husband at their home.”
Soon after the news was confirmed, reporter Kalea Gunderson shared a video of the arraignment on Twitter, which showed the teary actress in front of a judge.
“You have been charged with a misdemeanor domestic battery,” said the judge. “Do you know what you have been charged with?”
“Yes, your honor,” the star said quietly.
According to Kalea’s following tweets, “Criminal complaint states Rivera’s husband Ryan Dorsey told police she struck him in the head and bottom lip when they were on a walk with their child.”
The reporter then tweeted that Naya was released on bond and picked up by her father-in-law.

On Thanksgiving day, the actress posted a smiling and happy photo of the couple’s son, Josey.
The photo is tagged with Dorsey’s name and captioned, “Josey is the cuteeeest!! #joseyhollisdorsey #nayarivera #ryandorsey #thanksgiving.”
Meanwhile, Rivera dated the Pitch actor before breaking up and getting engaged to Big Sean in 2013.
However, when the rapper called off the wedding a year later, she immediately reunited with Dorsey. They got married three months after getting back together, tying the knot in a secret wedding ceremony in Mexico in July 2014.
