Rypien was arrested on Sunday evening following a public incident involving his wife, Danielle.
A report from KHQ-TV revealed that Rypien said in court that he and his wife were having an argument while he was driving, and he struck her in order to remove her hands from his face so that he could see the road.
KHQ also uncovered additional details surrounding the allegations. Police said they were dispatched to the area of Maple and Garland after a witness stated Rypien’s wife was complaining of stomach pains, allegedly from Rypien hitting her. Rypien’s wife told police she did not want her husband to be arrested. KHQ was the only crew at the scene and got exclusive video of Rypien being arrested.
During his court appearance today, Rypien’s lawyer told the judge that no crime had been committed. Rypien’s next court appearance is scheduled for later this month.
