Jean-Jacques was jailed in a local facility and was said to be emotional as he was represented by a public defender. 

Jean-Jacques' parents requested that the judge release him to their care, and noted that he was set to undergo surgery this week. The judge, Stephen Albany, denied the request. 

Jean-Jacques was a collegiate wrestler at the University of Iowa and Rhode Island College. He competed in one MMA fight in 2013, and had a half-dozen canceled over the next two years before signing with WWE in April.

When Fightful.com contacted WWE for a statement, the company said. "We have zero tolerance for matters involving domestic violence, and per our policy, Terrance Jean-Jacques has been suspended indefinitely following his arrest."
