Tamara Lynn Sytch, a WWE Hall of Famer, was involved in a deadly collision and is being investigated by Florida authorities to discover whether she was “impaired at the time,” according to the Ormond Beach Observer.
Sytch, 49, who is better known to wrestling fans as “Sunny,” was allegedly involved in a three-car collision in which Julian Lafrancis Lasseter, 75, of Daytona Beach Shores, perished. Sytch allegedly collided with the rear of a 2013 Kia Sorrento at a stoplight just before 8:30 p.m. on March 25, and the Kia collided with the rear of a 2011 GMC Yukon that was also at the stop signal.
According to witnesses, Sytch was going at a fast rate of speed, and the Observer stated that a warrant “was approved and executed to get a blood sample,” which police would use to assess whether she was impaired. According to TMZ, police stated in their report that they felt Sytch was impaired by drinking.
Additionally, police in Ormond Beach informed TMZ that they are requesting expedited findings from the tests and that charges may be filed.
Sytch was a WWE mega-star manager in the 1990s, but she has a checkered record, particularly in recent years.
She was detained in January on accusations of possessing a weapon and making terroristic threats after allegedly threatening to kill her “intimate boyfriend” with a pair of scissors. Prior to that, in February 2019, she was arrested and charged with her sixth DUI.
In 2011, she was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.
