Wrestler's daughter arrested after tussle with police
CHAPEL HILL (WTVD) -- The daughter of wrestling legend Ric Flair was arrested in Chapel Hill Friday.
Ashley Fliehr, 22, is charged with assault on a law enforcement officer. Her first court appearance is scheduled for October 6.
According to Chapel Hill Police, concerned neighbors called for help when they heard a commotion in the parking lot of their apartment complex off Conner Drive Saturday night.
Officers found Ric Flair, his daughter Ashley Fliehr and an unidentified 22-year-old man. Sources tell Eyewitness News the three were involved in a fight that left the former pro-wrestler bloodied and bruised.
Flair declined to file charges in the case. But, his daughter is accused of kicking an officer. Chapel Hill Police say a taser gun was used on Ashley Fliehr.
She is charged with assault on a law enforcement officer and resisting arrest. When Eyewitness News tried to contact Ashley Fliehr, her boyfriend said the incident was a family matter that is now resolved.
Ric Flair, whose real name is Richard Morgan Fliehr, is best known by his ring names, Ric Flair and the Nature Boy.
Flair is among the most well known wrestlers in the world and has been one of wrestling's biggest stars since the late 1970s. Many consider him the greatest wrestler of the modern era of professional wrestling.
He retired as a wrestler in March 2008.
