Florida State Attorney RJ Larizza has filed a motion seeking to have Tammy Sytch incarcerated until a future trial date.
This comes after Sytch, AKA WWE Hall of Famer Sunny, was arrested on May 6 in relation to a traffic fatality incident on March 25 and charged with DUI Manslaughter, Driving with a Suspended or Revoked License (Causing Death or Serious Injury), and seven charges of DUI Causing Damage to a Person or Property.
She was bonded out of jail on May 7 when a bail bondsman put up 10% of her $227,500 bail, and court records show that James Pente, Sytch’s boyfriend, has put up his property as collateral.
The new motion seeks to have Sytch incarcerated in pre-trial detention until her eventual trial for these charges.
Per PWInsider, the motion states:
“The State submits that there is a substantial probability that the Defendant committed DUI Manslaughter when she killed the victim on Match 25, 2022. The State also submits that Defendant poses a threat of harm to the community based on criminal history surrounding driving offenses as detailed above.”
Sytch is set to be arraigned on May 31 at 2:30pm in Volusia County Court.
A press release from the Ormond Beach Police Department stated that Sytch’s blood-alcohol level was three-and-a-half times the legal limit at the time of the incident.
DUI Manslaughter is a felony in Florida, and if Sytch is convicted, she could face up to 30 years in prison, with the minimum sentence being four years.
As we covered previously, 75-year-old Julian Lafrancis Lasseter died after it was believed Sytch had crashed into him and caused a three-car collision in Ormond Beach, Florida.
Police had been waiting for Sytch’s toxicology results to come back before arresting her.
Lassetter’s estate has also filed a civil lawsuit against Sytch and her boyfriend James Pente, who, according to the Ormond Beach police report, is the registered owner of the car she was driving. The lawsuit is seeking in excess of $100,000 in damages.
Tammy Sytch is due in court on May 26, but that’s actually in relation to a separate arrest back in February where she faces 11 different charges.
