Flair flees NC due to warrant

See also

Mecklenburg County, NC has a standing (bench) warrant currently active for former world champion Ric Flair due to his failure to meet his court ordered obligations in paying spousal support to estranged wife Jacqueline Beems.

It is believed Flair is in arrears in excess of $20,000 to Beems and is thought to be spending time between the home of current girlfriend Wendy Barlow around Atlanta and with daughter Ashley in Orlando where she is currently part of the WWE NXT roster.

Due to a number of legal issues Flair has been off the grid for some time including canceling personal appearances allegedly due to medical concerns. Flair has been suffering from blood clots in his legs making it difficult if not dangerous for him to fly from city to city.

Flair and Beems, his fourth wife, have had a stormy relationship which resulted in a number of police calls for domestic disturbances. The two have battled back and forth for a number of years with the divorce still pending and allegations of abuse, cheating and thievery being made by both camps.

The legacy of Ric Flair seems to be slowly getting tarnished by his activities outside the ring which include a number of run-ins with police, drunken episodes, and a number of lawsuits over money.

The WWE had an interest in Flair being an ambassador but have since reconsidered their position due to the activities of Flair.

While not confirmed it is believed that if Flair is apprehended in another state the state of North Carolina will seek extradition due to the amount owed as well as possible contempt of court charges he could face.
