Jadeja's mother was inside the car - a BMW - when the policeman got down from his bike following the accident and assaulted Riva.
Although the accident that took place in Jamnagar's Sharu section area was minor, the policeman reportedly over-reacted and slapped the cricketer's wife.
The police constable has been identified as Sanjay Ahir. He has been arrested after Riva lodged a complaint against him at a local police station.
Jadeja is currently playing in the Indian Premier League (IPL) for the Chennai team. The 29-year-old Indian spinner tied the knot with Riva on April 17, 2016.
