Early Wednesday morning, Raymond Leppan, better known as WWE Superstar Adam Rose, was arrested in Hillsborough, Fla., according to the Hillsborough Sheriff's Office. He was booked on charges of tampering with a witness and battery domestic violence.

Rose is currently serving a 60-day suspension for his second Wellness violation. During his suspension, he has been vocal about disagreeing with the decision to suspend him and offered his personal doctor's note as evidence backing his statements up. He also said he would be okay with whatever WWE decided to do in response. However, this arrest might just force WWE's hand in releasing him.

Rose, 36, is originally from South Africa and has been with WWE since 2010, when he signed a developmental contract and debuted in Florida Championship Wrestling. The bulk of his tenure in WWE has been with NXT and FCW as the Leo Kruger character, although he finally found success and earned a main roster call-up when he adopted the Adam Rose moniker. He had most recently been part of the Social Outcasts stable.
