As we reported over the weekend here on eWrestlingNews.com, Tammy “Sunny” Sytch was arrested yet again. The most recent was due to Sytch driving while intoxicated (DWI) yet again. She also had warrants out for her arrest.
The WWE Hall of Famer was pulled over on Saturday night around 6:30PM EST in Seaside Heights, New Jersey while driving on Dupont Avenue. According to the Seaside Heights Police Department, this was her sixth arrest for DWI/DUI since 2015. During the arrest, Sytch was also given a summons for having an open alcohol container in a motor vehicle, for consumption of alcohol in a Motor Vehicle, reckless driving, failure to stop at a stop sign, driving the wrong way on a one-way street, driving with a suspended driver’s license and careless driving.
Sytch was then released into the custody of the Holmdel, New Jersey Police Department after it was learned that she has outstanding warrants in that jurisdiction as well as in Knowlton, New Jersey. She has been charged with Contempt of Court – Disobedience/Resistance of Court Command over both of those warrants and is currently being held at Monmouth County Correctional Facility in Freehold, New Jersey. The warrants in Holmdel and Knowlton are because she had not made sufficient payments according to an agreed-upon plan to reimburse the state of Pennsylvania for costs relating to her legal cases in that state.
TMZ.com posted the following article earlier today, confirming the above report:
WWE Hall of Famer Tammy Sytch — aka “Sunny” — was arrested for DWI in New Jersey over the weekend, the 6TH time she’s been busted for drunk driving.
Officials say the 46-year-old was driving the WRONG WAY on a one-way street around 6:30 PM on Saturday. She also blew through a stop sign.
When cops pulled her over, officers noticed she had an alcoholic container in the car and believed she was drunk — so they arrested her on suspicion of driving while intoxicated.
Cops say during the incident, they also realized Sytch was driving on a suspended license and she had two outstanding warrants out for her arrest.
Sytch was taken into custody and hauled to a nearby station. She was eventually released after facing a judge via video conference.
Sytch has a long and sad history with alcohol abuse and police. She’s been arrested for drunk driving 6 times starting back in 2012 and just last year, she served 8 months in jail after 3 DUI arrests in 2018.
