24 year old Terrance Jean-Jacques, a former collegiate wrestler who was signed to a WWE developmental deal back in April, was arrested in North Andover, MA on Sunday and arraigned Wednesday on charges of assault and battery, kidnapping, witness intimidation, destruction of property and threatening to commit a crime. The news was first reported by The Eagle-Tribune.
Jean-Jacques allegedly hit his pregnant girlfriend, who was with his parents in court yesterday. A judge ordered him to be held without bail pending a dangerousness hearing scheduled for Tuesday. He was said to be on the verge of tears while in court. His mother asked the judge to release him to their care, as he’s scheduled for surgery this week, but the judge denied the request.
Jean-Jacques has been training at the WWE Performance Center but he has since been suspended. WWE confirmed the suspension to Prowrestling.net, “We have zero tolerance for matters involving domestic violence, and per our policy, Terrance Jean-Jacques has been suspended indefinitely following his arrest.”
