AEW’s Jake Atlas arrested and charged with domestic violence

AEW star Jake Atlas was arrested last week in Orlando and charged with misdemeanor battery. The victim of the domestic assault is his partner.

Atlas was arrested on May 23 when police officers responded to a domestic disturbance call at nearly 1AM. The incident happened the night before when Atlas was out drinking with friends and needed a lift back so he called his partner.

According to the police report, after his partner arrived, Atlas wanted him to remain there drinking and then go home with another friend for more fun.

An argument then erupted after Atlas was upset that his partner was showing more attention to their friend, rather than him, and became physically aggressive and attacked him.

Atlas was arrested inside the apartment he shares with his partner after multiple attempts at trying to make him leave.

He did not stay long in jail as he was bailed out later in the day but he is set to appear in court on June 28 in Orange County. He also had to sign a no contact and no communication order and was ordered to stay at least 500 feet away from the victim.

He is currently out recovering from surgery to repair a torn ACL which he suffered after he signed with AEW in January.
