Former Rhode Island College Wrestler & Current WWE Performance Center Talent Terrance Jean-Jacques Has Been Arrested

WWE A former Haverhill High wrestling great on the verge of becoming a professional wrestler is facing several criminal charges.

Terrance Jean-Jacques, 24, of 40 Locke St., who signed a contract with World Wrestling Entertainment in April, was arrested Sunday and arraigned Wednesday on charges of assault and battery, kidnapping, witness intimidation, destruction of property and threatening to commit a crime.

He is alleged to have hit his pregnant girlfriend Jillian Gilman, who appeared in Haverhill District Court with Jean-Jacques’ parents, Teresa and Ernest.

 Judge Stephen Abany ordered Jean-Jacques held without bail at Middleton jail pending a dangerousness hearing scheduled for Tuesday.

A decorated wrestler at the University of Iowa and later at Rhode Island College, Jean-Jacques appeared to be on the verge of tears as he stood in the courtroom before the judge Wednesday, a maroon Rhode Island College shirt adorning his chiseled 6 foot-3 inch, 250-pound frame.

This story is both sad and troubling, and is noteworthy for a few reasons. Terrence Jean-Jacques used to wrestle right up the road at Rhode Island College and he’s currently signed to a developmental deal with WWE. Both of those things aren’t important though, because he’s currently in jail on multiple charges, including hitting his pregnant girlfriend. Hitting a woman should never be tolerated, but it’s especially awful when you find out that the woman is not only his girlfriend, but she’s also pregnant. It’s a bad story all around, and Jean-Jacques has been indefinitely suspended by the WWE. That seems like a ‘wait and see’ approach by the WWE, because if the facts in this case are correct, he’ll almost certainly be released.
