Patrick Clark (the former Velveteen Dream of WWE NXT) has avoided assault charges after the case against him was dropped.
As previously reported here on eWn, the former NXT North American Champion was arrested twice last month. His first arrest was on August 20th for first-degree battery and trespassing. The second arrest took place on August 26th for possession of drug paraphernalia. Pwinsider reports that the charges stemming from the August 20th arrest have been closed against Clark. A subsequent hearing originally scheduled for September 28th has also been canceled.
According to court records, prosecutors did not believe that they had enough evidence to move forward with their case against Clark, and thus it was “not suitable for prosecution.”
Dream’s legal woes date back quite a ways at this point. The arrest on charges of assault triggered a violation of an existing probation, which arose from a November 2021 arrest for possession of cocaine, use or possession of drug paraphernalia, destroying/altering/concealing physical evidence and having no lamps/illuminating devices in his vehicle. Clark was determined to have violated his parole and served 25 days in lock-up before being released on September 13th of this year.
