Naya Rivera was arrested and charged with domestic battery after allegedly hitting her estranged husband, Ryan Dorsey.

The pair announced their split last year after two years of marriage. The "Glee" actress and Dorsey are parents to a 2-year-old son, Josey.

The Kanawha County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement that a sheriff's deputy was dispatched to an address in Chesapeake, West Virginia, Saturday night, on a domestic violence complaint. Once the officer arrived, Dorsey claimed that Rivera, 30, had hit him in the head and face.

"The deputy saw minor injuries consistent with [Dorsey's] statement," the Sheriff's Office statement said. Dorsey also provided deputies on scene with a video of the incident that supported his account.
