Sonya Deville made her comeback to WWE television back in January 2020 in a non-wrestling role. Fast forward three years, Deville became an active in-ring competitor, but that’s on hold now due to her ACL injury. She was also arrested on firearm charges earlier this year and now Deville has resolved them.
Sonya Deville was arrested in New Jersey on a firearms charge. She had a firearm in her vehicle and did not have a proper permit for it. The incident took place on February 19th but the public did not find out until the news broke on March 1st.
Ringside News exclusively reported that WWE Creative was informed about Sonya Deville’s February 19th arrest immediately. As revealed by Jim Walsh of Courier Post, the charge against her has been resolved.
According to the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office, Sonya Deville successfully resolved the charge by completing a six-month pretrial intervention program, concluding in late November. Her entry into the program was approved on May 25th, with consent granted based on a 2014 memo from the state Attorney General’s Office.
This memo considers entry into the program routine for cases with similar fact patterns. The Attorney General’s memo on gun charges prompted by a prior case involving the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office, emphasized that a prison term was not necessary or appropriate for individuals who inadvertently violate New Jersey’s gun laws.
Sonya Deville suffered an ACL tear after injuring herself on the July 28th episode of SmackDown and has been out of action since then. Sonya Deville’s rehab is also going as well as it can, but don’t expect her to return to the squared circle anytime soon. Regardless, we’ll have to wait and see when she will return to the ring.
