Jake Atlas has faced a few speedbumps throughout his pro wrestling career. Now it appears that an incident in his personal life is causing a lot of issues.
Atlas was arrested on May 23rd on battery charges. He assaulted his partner of several years. This is a misdemeanor battery charge for domestic assault. The exact details of this case were reported by PW Insider.
The report claims that Atlas was out drinking at Bid Daddy’s Roadhouse the night before, 5/22 and called his partner at 10 PM EST to come pick him up. When his partner arrived and attempted to bring Atlas home, Atlas instead wanted his partner to remain and drink with him. The victim stated that Atlas later wanted him to go back to another friend’s house to be intimate together but Atlas, according to the victim, was upset his partner was showing “half more attention” to her than Atlas, sparking a “verbal argument.”
At that time Atlas became “physically aggressive” and he charged at the victim. This led to another witness stepping in to prevent the attack. Atlas was told to go home and “sleep it off,” but he left the apartment and followed the victim.
Atlas again attempted to attack the victim with the witness again trying to stop it from happening, but this time, the altercation left the victim with a scratch on his left forearm and his tank top torn.
They were able to separate Atlas and the victim. Atlas got in a car, but he then got out and demanded to be brought back to his apartment to get his dog and leave. Once he returned to his apartment, Atlas refused to leave.
Police showed up and tried to talk with Atlas, but he proceeded to bad mouth the victim instead of tell his story. The police then determined that Atlas was the aggressor and he was arrested.
Atlas signed a no contact order agreeing to have no communication and to stay 500 feet away from the victim the same day he was arrested. He was released from jail on May 23rd and is set to appear in Orange County court on June 28th.
