Tammy Sytch will return to prison again. As previously announced Friday, a judge revoked the WWE Hall of Famer’s endorsement in relation to a March 25 accident in which Sytch struck another vehicle at a stop light. She was immediately taken into custody.
This development comes just a week after Tammy Sytch was arrested for the March incident that resulted in the death of the rear vehicle, a 75-year-old man, and injuries to Sytch himself. Sytch was charged with eight DUI-related charges, including negligent homicide caused by DUI and one DUI while driving with a suspended driver’s license. She faces a prison sentence of 4 to 30 years or more.
Tammy Sytch was initially released on bail last Saturday afternoon; The entire bond was listed at over $227,000. She had evaded arrest before last week as police waited for her toxicology reports to come back. The reports would eventually show that Sytch had a blood alcohol level 3 1/2 times the legal limit for driving.
Sytch and her boyfriend James Pente, who police claim is the owner of the vehicle that was driving (Sytch has claimed otherwise), have been sued by the deceased’s family, seeking over $100,000 in damages demands. No court date has been set for the civil trial. Sytch has defended both Pente and himself on social media since the incident, claiming the death was caused by a heart attack and not the accident.
Since 2012, Tammy Sytch has been arrested more than 15 times (not counting this most recent arrest), with several of the arrests attributed to DUIs. Her recent arrest and response prompted former WWE Head Coach Bill DeMott and AEW’s Mark Henry to call for Sytch’s removal from the WWE Hall of Fame, into which she was inducted in 2011. Sytch has since fired back at DeMott on social media, referencing DeMott’s checkered past at the WWE Performance Center.
