This week on Raw, Rusev turned up at a restaraunt to attack Bobby Lashley who was on a date with his real-life wife Lana.
This storyline is playing out on TV as Vince McMahon seemingly does not understand what a girl like Lana sees in someone like Rusev… How lovely.
To follow-up from this angle, WWE has confirmed that the former United States Champion has been arrested following his actions on Monday Night.

On the matter, WWE.com had the following to say:
WWE.com has confirmed Rusev was taken into custody by the Cleveland Police Department on Monday and was released after no charges were pressed by Bobby Lashley and Lana.
The Bulgarian Brute will be in attendance for Raw on Monday Night in St. Louis, Mo. following his chaotic attack on The All Mighty at a local fine-dining establishment.
Rusev’s rage was sparked during an appearance on “King’s Court” when Lana and Lashley appeared on the TitanTron while enjoying an extravagantly romantic meal. The former United States Champion knew the exact location of the restaurant and stormed out of the arena to pay the devious lovebirds a visit.
Just in case you weren’t aware, the arrest is part of the storyline and not real.
