Ryan Dorsey, husband of Naya Rivera, has spoken out in light of his wife’s arrest for domestic battery.

Rivera hit him on the bottom lip after an argument over their son while walking with him in Kanawha County, West Virginia. The couple was there to celebrate Thanksgiving with Dorsey’s family. Rivera is known for her former role on the TV show “Glee.”

Dorsey also told the dispatcher Rivera had been drinking and that she was getting physical with him.

The dispatcher asked if anyone else was home with him, and he responded that his father was there, but he did not mention his son.

Dorsey submitted a video of the attack to the police, and Rivera was arrested. She was later released on a $1,000 bond and picked up from the courthouse by her father-in-law.

Yesterday, Dorsey posted on Twitter, asking for privacy:

The audio clip was released shortly after Dorsey tweeted the message.
