In a shocking turn of events, Cash Wheeler, a prominent figure in the All Elite Wrestling (AEW) universe, has found himself in the midst of a legal quagmire.
The video of his arraignment for aggravated assault with a firearm has recently been made public, shedding light on the circumstances surrounding his arrest.
Cash Wheeler’s Unexpected AEW Detour
Wheeler was gearing up for a significant bout at AEW All In London. However, his arrest has thrown a spanner in the works, casting doubts over FTR’s participation in the event.
The duo was previously considered the favourites to clinch victory in the match. But with Wheeler’s legal troubles, their prospects seem uncertain.
AEW Star: Details of the Arrest
The Orlando Police Department apprehended Wheeler, charging him with a single count of aggravated assault with a firearm. The county records confirm that the court proceedings took place in Circuit Court.
The video of the arraignment provides a glimpse into the legal proceedings. Wheeler’s attorney, representing the AEW World Tag Team Champion, revealed that Wheeler had voluntarily turned himself in the previous night.
The attorney stated, “To my right is Mr. Wheeler. Daniel Wheeler. He turned himself in late last night on a warrant from the Orlando Police Department. The charge was aggravated assault with a firearm. It’s a third-degree felony.”
Bond and Conditions
The defence requested a bond of $2,500 for Wheeler, emphasising that he should have no contact with the alleged victims and should not possess any weapons.
The attorney highlighted Wheeler’s clean record, his age of 36, his US citizenship, and his property ownership in Maitland as reasons for the bond request.
Interestingly, Wheeler reportedly does not know the identity of the alleged victims. The State did not object to the bond amount, noting that the incident seemed to be a result of road rage.
The alleged victim claimed that Wheeler brandished a handgun during the altercation.
AEW’s Response and Future Implications
AEW has acknowledged the situation, stating that they are closely monitoring the developments. Tony Khan, a key figure in AEW, might have to make a pivotal decision regarding FTR’s future in the wake of these events.
The wrestling community and fans are eagerly awaiting more updates on this matter.
