Legendary Wrestler Ric Flair Is On The Run! (Sort Of)

Charlotte, North Carolina police are on the hunt for Ric Flair - considered to be the finest professional wrestler of all time - for not paying his estranged wife $35k in spousal support. Flair, real name Richard Morgan Fliehr, was ordered to pay $4,000 a month to Jacqueline Beems but has failed to keep up the regular payments, reports the Los Angeles Times.

Flair, 64, can avoid going to jail if he pays what he owes, though a judge issued an arrest order in a Charlotte court on Tuesday (July 16, 2013). "The reason I didn't pay my ex-wife the 32 grand is because my son died and I was in the hospital for a month," Flair told the Charlotte Observer. "I was in the hospital for a month with a blood clot. I didn't go to work for three months."

Reid Fliehr was found dead by his father on March 29. The wrestler's son, 25, died from taking a combination of heroin and prescription drugs, according to the autopsy.

Bizarrely, Beems turned herself into police on Tuesday after a warrant was issued for her arrest for making a series of threatening phone calls to Flair's current girlfriend. She was released on a $500 bond. "My girlfriend is the mother of four and she has 50 texts and five voice-mails from my ex-wife," said Flair.

Unpick this one, if you can.
