Well, let’s just say it didn’t start well. Rosa, who is a WWE Diva was apparently sobbing in an airport restroom when police found her. She was reportedly muttering to herself and calling for help. An officer on the scene reported that “she was afraid [her fiancé] would try and kill her. She also stated the abuse had been an on-going thing.”
What was she hiding from? According to police, it was Slocum, who Mendes says had been beating her. The actual police report states that Mendes claims that Andy “hit her several times at their shared residence in Las Vegas.”
We know that people don’t take domestic violence accusations lightly. They can ruin careers, marriages, and obviously lead to jail time.
It turns out that Mendes had been drinking at the time, but that didn’t stop police from taking her seriously, either. They took photos of what she says were injuries she got from Slocum, and then she filed a criminal complain against him.
So his name doesn’t sound familiar? Well, that’s because he was a WWE Wrestler by the name of Jackson Andrews. as for the WWE, they released a statement:
“(she) contacted a WWE Talent Relations representative this morning to notify WWE that, upon her arrival in San Antonio last evening, she contacted police at the airport to report alleged domestic abuse that occurred just prior to her flight.”
So who is this Slocum guy? Well as I said before he was a wrestler, but he lost his job after refusing to show up to training sessions. Even just his picture makes me think he looks suspicious.
Obviously he is innocent until proven guilty, but with bruising and a very scared girl, you have a pretty convincing case. We’ll see what happens once this thing gets in front of a judge.
Until then, check out some video of Andy Slocum, Rosa Mendes boyfriend below.
