WWE Wrestler Tammy “Sunny” Sytch Pleads Not Guilty to DUI Causing Death

Yahoo! News reports that WWE Hall of Fame wrestler Tammy “Sunny” Sytch entered a plea of not guilty to the charge of DUI causing death after a collision on Ormond Beach in March.

According to the Ormond Beach Police Department report, on March 25, Sytch failed to stop her vehicle and crashed into another stopped vehicle waiting at a traffic signal at the intersection of U.S, Highway 1, and Granada Boulevard. The crash ultimately led to the death of a 75-year-old man inside the other vehicle.

Police officers responding to the scene administered field sobriety tests and Breathalyzer tests and found that Sytch had a blood alcohol level of 0.280 percent, more than three times the legal limit of 0.08 percent.

A search of Sytch’s vehicle found ‌she had an open container of vodka.

Later tests found that Sytch had THC in her bloodstream, indicating the use of marijuana before the fatal crash.

Sytch was arrested on May 6 and booked into the Volusia County Jail. She was later released on a $225,000 bond. On May 13, the court determined that while Sytch was a danger to the community and herself after repeated DUI incidents, she could remain free if she wore an ankle monitor equipped with an alcohol sensor.

Sytch, 49, is facing additional charges, including driving on a revoked or suspended license, four counts of DUI causing damage to a person, and two counts of DUI causing property damage. If convicted of the charges against her, Sytch could be facing 26 years in prison.
