Ric Flair Beat Up By His Wife

By Robert Paul Reyes

"The wife of professional wrestler Ric Flair was arrested Sunday night for allegedly assaulting him, TMZ reported Monday.

Flair and his wife, Jacqueline Beems, have been married for only three months."

Ric Flair is a wrestler who looks like he munches on vitamins and performance enhancing pills like the rest of us munch on popcorn. Anybody in his right mind wouldn`t start an argument with Flair, but apparently the musclebound wrestler married a lady who isn`t in her right mind.

Only a fool would attack a wrestler who may be on steroids, and Jacqueline is lucky that her husband didn`t slap her down. I abhor violence of all types, including domestic violence. But I am of the opinion that a man has a right to defend himself when he is being physically attacked by a woman. A man is not a punching bag, and he shouldn`t tolerate anyone, male or female beating him up.

Domestic violence is equally reprehensible whether it`s a husband beating his wife, or the other way around. It`s not funny when a wife assaults her husband, it`s a crime, and I hope the judge throws the book at Jacqueline.
