The Incident That Led to Arrest of WWE star

On March 25, 2022, a traffic fatality incident occurred involving Sytch, resulting in the death of 75-year-old Julian Lafrancis Lasseter.

It was believed that Sytch had crashed into him, causing a three-car collision in Ormond Beach, Florida. Her blood alcohol level at the time was a staggering 0.280, more than three times the legal limit for operating a motor vehicle.

Charges and Legal Proceedings

Sytch faced nine charges, including one count of DUI causing death (DUI Manslaughter), one count of causing death while operating a vehicle with a suspended or revoked driver’s licence, four counts of DUI causing injury to a person, and three counts of DUI causing damage to property.

Just before she was set to go on trial for the nine charges, Sytch entered a no-contest plea. This plea essentially rules that the time she has already spent in incarceration since May 2022 covers seven of the nine charges listed.
