Police: Ex-pro wrestler bruised after scuffle

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -- Chapel Hill police say former pro wrestler Ric Flair was left bruised and bloodied after a fight with his daughter's 22-year-old boyfriend.

Police told the News & Observer of Raleigh on Tuesday the scuffle left both men slightly injured. Authorities responded to an apartment complex after neighbors called about a fight.

When police arrived, the two men and Flair's daughter, 22-year-old Ashley Elizabeth Fliehr, were inside her apartment. None would cooperate with officers.

Police said Flair's daughter kicked an officer and was charged with assault and resisting arrest. Neither man was charged in the incident.

Chapel Hill Police Capt. Chris Blue declined to release the boyfriend's name because he could later face charges.
