WWE Hall of Famer Sunny involved in fatal driving accident, DUI suspected

0

Tammy Sytch, better known to wrestling fans as WWE Hall of Famer Sunny, allegedly caused a car accident last month in which a 75-year-old man died.

Sunny is no stranger to legal trouble, having been arrested multiple times since the start of 2022. In January, the WWE Hall of Famer was arrested on terrorism threats and weapons charges, and she was again arrested in February on multiple charges. Both times it was reported that she appeared to be under the influence.

Now, a new report from TMZ says Sytch has been arrested again after allegedly causing a car accident in which a 75-year-old man died. The report says police at the scene suspect she was under the influence of alcohol at the time. According to police documents, the crash happened around 8:28 p.m. on March 25 on US Highway 1 in Volusia County, Florida.

The documents indicate that Sytch was driving a 2012 Mercedes when it collided with the rear of a 2013 Kia Sorento stopped at a traffic light. The Kia then rammed a 2011 GMC Yukon which had also been stopped at a traffic light. Police say witnesses say Sunny was driving at “high speed” before the collision.

TMZ notes that according to police documents, the driver of the Kia was taken to hospital, where he later died of his injuries from the accident. Sytch was also taken to hospital with undisclosed injuries. Documents say the driver and passengers in the Yukon complained of multiple injuries, but were not taken to hospital as a result.

In a statement to TMZ on behalf of the Ormond Beach Police Department, a spokesperson said the results of a toxicology report could determine whether criminal charges are brought against Sunny as a result of the accident.

“OBPD has requested an expedited timeframe for processing these samples, and results will be made available as soon as the department receives them.”

This is far from Tammy Sytch’s first encounter with the law. She spent 8 months in jail in 2018 after missing several court dates on multiple impaired driving charges. In February 2019, the 2011 WWE Hall of Fame inductee was arrested again for a DUI, her sixth arrest for this offense.
