According to TMZ.com, the Los Angeles Police Department is investigating battery accusations against former WWE Diva, Joanie "Chyna" Laurer. Laurer is accused of assaulting a female friend, Gabriella Targos, at a Sherman Oaks, California, motel Saturday night.

Known to wrestling fans as "Chyna", Laurer worked for World Wrestling Entertainment from 1997 to 2001.

During her tenure, she was a WWE Women's Champion and a 2-time Intercontinental Champion.

 According to Targos, Laurer called her and asked her to meet at the motel. Targos stated that when she arrived at the motel, Laurer began to attack her for no reason, punching her in the face, dragging her by the hair, and beating her with a wire hanger and threatening to kill her.

Targos said she was able to free herself and run out of the motel room, where she found a few police officers.

So far, no arrests have been made.
