Pro Wrestling Sheet has confirmed that Paige was taken to the hospital last night … and the reason she was pictured in handcuffs is because the wrestler was detained by police shortly beforehand.
The Las Vegas Metro Police Department tells us officers were outside of Caesars Palace for an unrelated incident when they were flagged down over a female seen running into the streets.
After authorities caught up with the woman she was quickly detained, and officers determined that she needed to be taken to the hospital for undisclosed reasons.
Sources tell us the woman was Paige, and the photos on Twitter were indeed of the incident, but law enforcement officials say they’re unable to verify the woman’s name due to HIPAA laws.
UPDATE: 7:42pm PST – Sources with direct knowledge tell us no charges were filed against Paige and WWE is currently investigating the matter to see if any disciplinary action will be necessary.
In the meantime, Paige wrestled Charlotte on RAW tonight for the Women’s Championship.
