A police deputy has allegedly confirmed having video evidence of Naya Rivera hitting her husband Ryan Dorsey.

The former 'Glee' star was charged with misdemeanor domestic battery in West Virginia over the weekend after she allegedly struck out at Ryan whilst taking their two-year-old son Josey out for a walk.

At the time of Naya's arrest, it was believed Ryan had video footage of the alleged incident, and now, in a criminal complaint obtained by People magazine, an unnamed Charleston police deputy has claimed to have viewed the footage.

In the document, the police deputy said: ''[Ryan said that his wife] had struck him in the head and the bottom lip while the two were taking their child for a walk down the street.

''Ryan provided me with a cell phone video recording of Ryan being struck by Naya. I then detained Naya and charged her with domestic battery.''

It comes after police previously insisted they would not release details of the alleged incident, but confirmed the pair were thought to be arguing about their son when the altercation took place.

In a statement, the Sergeant B.D. Humphreys of the Kanawha County Sheriff's Office said: ''While we will not release details of the incident beyond what is in the criminal complaint (charging document), we will say the two were arguing over their child.''

Naya, 30, was arrested on Saturday (25.11.17), and was later released on bond.

Naya and the 34-year-old actor's relationship has been on the rocks over the last few months, after the pair had filed for a divorce in November last year.

However, last month the 'Devious Maids' star was believed to have filed a request to dismiss the legal paperwork as her and Ryan - who wed in 2014 after dating on and off since they first met in 2010 - had moved on and their relationship was on the mend.
