Last Friday, Cash Wheeler was arrested by the Orlando Police Department for aggravated assault with a firearm. The incident happened last month. Wheeler allegedly flashed a gun at the victim. However, Wheeler’s attorney noted that the incident was “believed to be a road rage incident.”
Cash Wheeler was released from jail last Saturday on a $2,500 bond. The judge ordered Wheeler to surrender any weapons in his possession to the Orange County Sheriff’s Office within 12 hours of his release. The judge also ordered Wheeler to have no contact with any witnesses or the victim.
During the All In media call, AEW President Tony Khan commented on Cash Wheeler’s arrest last Friday. Khan said that he couldn’t come to a conclusion because he still learning the facts.
“As for things that have happened outside of the ring, I can’t comment on the specifics at this time because I still don’t know everything. We’re still learning facts. Based on the information we have at this time, we’re still keeping an eye on that situation. At this time, I think it’s a very inconclusive situation. It differs from other times when we’ve come in and weighed in or acted on a situation based on the evidence because, in this case, with everything we’re looking at, I don’t think we have those facts right now. At this point, I think it’s rather inconclusive. I do very much look forward to the match and we’ll keep an eye out throughout this weekend and as long as it’s a pending situation.”
FTR (Cash Wheeler and Dax Harwood) are scheduled to defend their AEW World Tag Team Championships against Young Bucks (Matt and Nick Jackson) at All In.
