The actress, who played Santana in Glee, was arrested at a home in West Virginia, on November 25.
Local TV station WSAZ-TV shared a photo of the 30 year old in handcuffs at a police station.
She was later released on bail for £750 [$ 1000], with the publication stating her father-in-law picking her up from the station.
The website states police were called to their home at 9:30pm, over a domestic situation.
Ryan told officers Naya had ‘struck him in the head and bottom lip’.
He reportedly later provided the officials with video footage of the incident.
The couple first started dating back in 2010, before the actress called time on their romance.
They reunited four years later, before tying the knot in a surprise wedding in July of that year.
Naya welcomed their first child together, son Josey Hollis, in 2015.
The pair announced their divorce last year, before calling it off earlier in October, for the sake of their little one.
OK! Online has contacted Naya’s reps for a comment.
