The arrest occurred on November 25 and Naya was released on bond early Sunday on November 26.
Rivera, 30, was charged with domestic battery for reportedly assaulting her spouse, fellow actor Ryan Dorsey, while visiting his hometown of Chesapeake, WV.
"I can just say that there was enough in the video to corroborate the statement of the video and that was why the decision was made that was made".
According to the reports, his bruises were consistent with his claims, and further evidence was backed up by the video taken during the alleged incident. A sheriff's deputy arrived at the scene and spoke with Dorsey, who said his wife, Rivera, "struck him in the head and face".
Dorsey had video evidence of the altercation with his wife, which he showed police, who ultimately chose to charge Rivera.
Domestic battery carries a maximum of a year in prison and a fine of up to $500, court records show.
Big Sean ended his engagement to Rivera in 2014 and later told American radio station Hot 97 their relationship was "craziness" and he was happy he "dodged" marrying her. She also requested primary custody of their then 1-year-old son Josey.
The couple only reconciled last month after it was previously revealed they'd be getting a divorce.
