Naya Rivera, the star of the hit TV show “Glee” was taken into custody for assaulting her husband as they brought their son for a walk on Saturday night in West Virginia.

The 30-year-old reportedly hit her husband Ryan Dorsey, 34, in the head while they spent the holiday weekend in his hometown of Chesapeake.

According to TMZ, Dorsey provided Kanawha County Sheriff’s Office deputies, with cell phone footage of the incident.

Rivera was sporting a baggy hooded sweatshirt, leggings, sandals, and handcuffs when officers escorted her into a Kanawha County magistrate court just after midnight.

Naya Rivera was charged with misdemeanor domestic battery and was released to her father-in-law on a $1,000 bond. She was quiet as she left the courthouse in Charleston.

The Glee star filed for divorce from the “Ray Donovan” actor last year but called it off in October to proceed with taking care of their child together. The couple got married after three months of dating in 2014.

She was engaged to rapper Big Sean before her rocky marriage with Dorsey.

The Detroit native mocked the woman’s arrest by tweeting a video that said: “I told you so.”

The hip-hop artist hinted at his turbulent relationship with Rivera in the song “I Don’t F— With You.” He said the woman was too controlling and violent.

Rivera, 30, gained fame as cheerleader Santana Lopez on the Fox series “Glee,” which aired from 2009 to 2015.
