Tammy Lynn Sytch rose to prominence as Sunny in WWE. She was known for her beauty and charisma, and was one of the most popular and influential figures in wrestling during the 1990s. However, her personal struggles in recent years have unfortunately overshadowed her accomplishments. Recently, her court trial was pushed to the next month, and now “Sunny” will have to wait even longer for the DUI Manslaughter trial.
The glamorous onscreen life that Sunny had was totally opposite in real life for her. She has battled addiction and has been arrested several times for various offenses such as DUI, domestic violence, and probation violation.
The former WWE Diva was charged with one count of DUI causing death, another one while driving with a suspended or revoked driver’s license (a felony in the third degree), and some more charges. Furthermore, she has also been charged with three counts of DUI for damage to property in a traffic incident in Ormond Beach, Florida that took the life of 75-year-old Julian Lasseter.
Tammy Sytch was given the “criminal indigent status” back in August 2022 when she waived her right to a speedy trial “arising out of the criminal episode made the subject of this prosecution. The court has now issued an order that the former WWE superstar is required to submit a DNA swab of her cheek. Moreover, there are multiple witnesses in the case scheduled to testify, which could possibly be the reason for the delay in the trial.
“A civil lawsuit brought by the victim’s daughter is still making its way to the court. James Pente, Sytch’s fiancé, submitted a motion to be dismissed from the lawsuit, claiming that since it was shown that the vehicle Sytch was operating belonged to a newly added defendant, Ultimate Motor Vehicles LLC of Florida, rather than him, he should not be made responsible for the event.” alleged negligent entrustment of the subject vehicle.”
The original belief when the lawsuit was first filed was that Pente owned the car, which apparently arose from Sytch’s arrest report, which listed him as the owner of the vehicle. How that connection (or error) was made, if the car wasn’t his, remains to be explained. It seems pretty clear that if Pente didn’t have actual ownership of the car, he can’t be held responsible for allowing Sytch to get behind the wheel, because he was never in control of that car. The obvious next question is how the dealership let Sytch leave with the car when she didn’t have an actual driver’s license at the time she took possession of the vehicle. The court has yet to rule on the dismissal motion.”
Tammy Sytch’s life has been in a tailspin ever since she has been away from WWE right after her induction into the Hall of Fame. We will have to wait and see what happens next in the Tammy Sytch case. Stay tuned to Ringside News as we keep you updated on this story.
