Tammy Lynn Sytch, formerly known as Sunny in WWE, was arrested yesterday on several charges relating to an accident that killed a 75-year-old man. Sytch had previously taken to social media to run her mouth about her innocence. Investigators decided that there was enough evidence to pick her up on charges of DUI manslaughter after toxicology tests confirmed suspicions that she was under the influence at the time of the accident.

The penalty for her crimes could keep her in jail for a large portion of the remainder of her life. Tammy Sytch is facing 30 years in prison for the offense. The judge may be willing to issue the harshest sentence possible, as Sytch has a long history of DUI arrests.

Tammy has been arrested multiple times for driving drunk and various other dangerous or violent crimes. Sytch claimed that she had a seizure which caused the accident. The results of the toxicology tests don’t lie, though. Tammy was found to be impaired.

Sunny was once one of the brightest stars in professional wrestling. She redefined what it meant to be a woman in wrestling. Sytch was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2011 despite her many criminal and character issues.

Tammy Sytch is currently 49 years old. If the judge goes with the harshest possible sentence, she would remain behind bars until she is about 80 years old. The best she can do is try to convince the court to show some sort of leniency, as all the evidence seems to point against her.

The downfall of Tammy Lynn Sytch has been hard to watch for long-time wrestling fans. She had the world on a platter, and instead melted down under the pressure of the bright lights. Fortunately, it looks like society won’t have to deal with her dangerous actions for a long time.
