Wrestling icon Ric Flair is wanted by North Carolina police after allegedly failing to pay spousal support to his estranged wife. The retired sportsman, real name Richard Fliehr, reportedly owes Jacqueline Beems more than $32,000 (£20,645) as per a court order issued after she filed for legal separation last summer (12) to end their three-year marriage.
A judge in Charlotte recently signed off on an arrest warrant for the 64 year old, demanding he pay up or be taken into custody.
However, Flair isn't the only one in trouble with the law - cops are also looking to question Beems over claims she threatened to beat up her former husband's new girlfriend, Wendy Barlow Kidder, last October (12). A warrant for her arrest was issued at the end of June (13).
It's the latest personal drama for Flair, who lost his wrestler son Reid to an accidental drug overdose in March (13).
The son of legendary wrestler Ric Flair died from an accidental heroin overdose, coroners have found. Richard Reid Fliehr, who was also a grappler, was found dead in a hotel room in Charlotte, North Carolina on 29 March (13).
According to his official autopsy report, which was released on Friday (14Jun13), officials found heroin and traces of muscle relaxant clonazepam and anxiety drug Xanax in his system.
The 25 year old, known in the ring as Reid Flair, struggled with substance abuse and was arrested three times in the last seven years, with police once allegedly finding heroin during a search of his car following an accident.
Following the release of the autopsy report, Ric Flair told the Charlotte Observer, "I loved him... He should have been on top of the world, but he was fighting a battle he couldn't win."
