TMZ shared an audio copy of the call on Tuesday. Ryan sounds frightened of his spouse as he says, ‘There’s a domestic dispute. I just need a police officer. My wife’s out of control. She’s getting physical.’ 

The 34-year-old actor – who wed the TV beauty over two years ago –  was out of breath on the call and came off as frantic before telling police she had been drinking and they were fighting over their son, Josey, when she hit him twice causing his lip to tear.

Also on Tuesday Ryan broke his silence as he tweeted a statement telling fans this was ‘not some reality show’ and that deserve ‘kindness, respect, without judgment.’

His full statement read: ‘This is a difficult time for everyone in the family especially for Naya and I.

‘This isn’t some reality show, this is our life, and I ask that everyone especially “the media” please respect our privacy and treat us/this situation how you would want a loved one to be treated.

‘Perhaps with kindness, respect, without judgement, and as negative a situation like this is, with positivity and love. Thanks.’

RYAN’S STATEMENT

‘This is a difficult time for everyone in the family especially for Naya and I,’ he began his tweet.

‘This isn’t some reality show, this is our life, and I ask that everyone especially “the media” please respect our privacy and treat us/this situation how you would want a loved one to be treated. 

‘Perhaps with kindness, respect, without judgement, and as negative a situation like this is, with positivity and love. Thanks.’ 

He sounded like he was out of breath and panicked as he asked for police to come help him. 

Dorsey told the Chesapeake dispatcher that there were no weapons in the house and that he was able to get away from her temporarily. 

It was added his father was there but Ryan said his dad was not attacked. He does not mention their child Josey, aged two, even though the officer asks if there were children on the scene.

The call ends before the operator can get more information, the site added. 

She was arraigned and released on $1,000 bond. Ryan did not require medical attention.

Her mugshot was release over the weekend. The makeup-free star does not look at the camera.

The Kanawha County Sheriff’s Office tweeted Sunday that Rivera was arrested overnight for domestic battery.
