Arrest Warrant Issued for Ric Flair

flairAn arrest order has been issued by a judge in Meckleburg, North Carolina for WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair.

The Charlotte Observer is reporting that Flair (Richard Fliehr) was held in contempt earlier this month for not paying his estranged wife more than $32,000 in spousal support.

Flair was ordered to pay $4,000 a month to his latest former wife Jacqueline Beems. The money was intended to go for her car payment, health insurance and legal fees.

The court says that Flair owns Beems $32,352.51 and he will avoid jail time if he pays her that amount.
Flair did tell the Observer that he plans on paying his ex-wife by Wednesday.
“The reason I didn’t pay my ex-wife the 32 grand is because my son died and I was in the hospital for a month,” Flair said. “I was in the hospital for a month with a blood clot. I didn’t go to work for three months.”

Beems also has some recent issues with the law as she turned herself in to authorities on Tuesday and was charged with making a harassing phone call to Flair’s current girlfriend Wendy Kidder, better known to wrestling fans as Fifi the Maid.
Beems is accused of making a series of phone calls to Kidder, Flair’s girlfriend and was charged with the misdemeanor. She was released on a $500 unsecured bond.
