Professional wrestling champion Ric Flair calls police after he is ‘assaulted by his wife’… for the second time in two years
Professional wrestling legend Ric Flair called police to stop his wife from beating him, according to reports, the second he has needed authorities to intervene during a fight with his spouse.
For 45 years, Flair has been a terror in the ring, winning 30 different championships as ‘Nature Boy,’ a wild and aggressive 6-foot-1, 243-pound fighter.
In February 2010, Jacqueline Bains Beems was locked up after police accused of her of punching Flair in the face and kicking and biting him in an assault that left him bloody and bruised.

Long-term: Flair and Beems, seen here in 2008, have been together since they met in Chicago in 2004. They married in October 2010
On Monday, officers were called the Flair’s luxury condo in Charlotte, North Carolina, after Flair, 63, dialed 911 and asked for help, according to WCNC-TV.
The police report isn’t clear what officers found when they spoke with Beems, 43, and Flair.
However, no one was taken to the hospital and no one was arrested.
Flair and Beems met in 2004 during one of his appearances in Chicago.
They dated for six years until marrying in October 2010.
Legend: Flair has dominated the wrestling ring for 45, winning 30 championships and becoming the first wrestler inducted into the hall of fame twice.
Police arrested Beems in March on charges of reckless driving and driving while intoxicated.
The 2010 assault charges against her were dropped last July for lack of evidence.
Flair continues to appear in the ring and make public appearances — though his wrestling career is now part-time.
Earlier this year, he became the first wrestler to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame twice — once as himself and once as part of the wrestling time the Four Horsemen.
