Ex-WWE Star Alberto Del Rio Charged With Kidnapping, Sexual Assault

Grand jury indicts former WWE champ Alberto Del Rio on one count of aggravated kidnapping and four counts of sexual assault.

Del Rio, whose real name is Jose Alberto Rodriguez Chucuan, is alleged to have kidnapped his ex-girlfriend after an argument.

According to court documents, investigators said Alberto accused his ex-girlfriend of infidelity.

But the woman denied that she was cheating on him, which angered Del Rio. He then struck her multiple times.

Del Rio then told her to put on a dress and dance for him. But she refused.

He then warned her that he'd take her son and 'drop him off in the middle of the road.'

Meanwhile, he tied her hands with boxing straps and stuck a sock in her mouth. He then sexually assaulted her for several hours, using various objects.

According to investigators, he also punched her in the back during the assault, causing visible injuries.

The woman also told police that Del Rio smashed her phone and laptop and attempted to burn her passport.

Del Rio is now facing four counts of sexual assault and one count of aggravated kidnapping.

If convicted, all 5 counts carry serious penalties.

Felony aggravated assault could carry five years behind bars, while sexual assault charges have a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison.

So, a conviction could put Del Rio in jail for a long time.

Commenting on the case, The Bexar County District Attorney's office said:

[Del Rio] is charged in a multi-count indictment.

Because these cases are pending trial, we can make no further comment on them.

The 43-year-old Del Rio is famous for his WWE stints from 2010 to 2014 and 2015 to 2016.
