Domestic violence charges against Adam Rose dropped

WWE on YouTube

He’s moved on from WWE, so this doesn’t have any impact on his work status, but the news Florida prosecutors have closed the case on Ray “Adam/Aldo Rose” Leppan’s domestic violence case is hopefully a positive step for the wrestler and his family.

TMZ Sports posted on the case being dropped earlier today.

Leppan was arrested on May 11 and charged with tampering with a witness and battery domestic violence. WWE announced his suspension later that day under their policy for such matters.

Prior to his release the next day, his wife and lawyers plead for leniency, and the judge responded by not issuing a restraining order and instructing Leppan to continue with the pastoral counseling in which he was already taking part. The court evidently is satisfied with both whatever progress he’s making there and his behavior since the incident, since TMZ discovered prosecutors filed a motion to dismiss and the case is now listed as closed.

WWE released Rose a couple weeks later, a move he says was a mutual parting of the ways. He’s now working on the independent circuit.
