Ric Flair’s Tight Lips May Have Gotten Wife Off
Ric Flair’s wife is in the clear for allegedly assaulting the wrestling legend at their home back in February — and it might have a lot to do with the fact that Ric refused to testify against her.
According to officials in a Charlotte, NC court, the judge tossed out an assault charge today against Jacqueline Beems — who married Flair in November 2009 — because the D.A. didn’t have enough evidence to prosecute her.
We’re told Flair — a crucial witness for the prosecution — took the stand to testify … but pled the 5th.
Beems’ attorney Brad Smith tells TMZ, “We are just thrilled at the outcome and all parties are looking forward to moving on.”
