The 30-year-old actress has reportedly been charged with the criminal offence after she was allegedly involved in an altercation with her husband, Ryan Dorsey, on Saturday evening in Kanawha County, West Virginia.
PEOPLE has reported that Naya has been accused of striking the 'Blood' actor over the head and in the mouth during a walk with their two-year-old son, Josey, in Chesapeake over the weekend.
Ryan is believed to have video footage of the incident on camera.
The incident was first reported by local news station WSAZ, and the site has since shared footage of Naya in handcuffs, being arraigned.
The former 'Glee' star has been released on bail.
The couple filed for 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 their relationship was on the mend.
Speaking at the time, a source said: “She is back together with Ryan Dorsey. They want to make it work for the sake of their son.”
And the trio put on a happy display as they celebrated Thanksgiving as a family.
