Former WWE manager Dutch Mantell has shared his thoughts on the ongoing criminal case of Sunny (aka Tammy Sytch) which has seen her charged with impaired driving manslaughter among several other charges.

Although Tammy was originally released on bail earlier this month, a judge recently revoked the bail, sending the WWE Hall of Famer back to jail. The judge clarified that Sunny is a threat to society and therefore jail is the only way to protect the community from her.

Speaking about the incident with Wrestling Shoot Interviews, Dutch Mantell revealed that his granddaughter Amelia died in a car accident caused by a drunk driver, which made the matter personal to her:

“I think jail is not just for punishing someone, it’s for keeping citizens safe,” Dutch said. “The reason I say this and I’m so adamant about it is that in 2012 my 16-year-old granddaughter, Amelia, was killed on the freeway by a drunk, doped driver who had a criminal record. of 15 pages. , and had been arrested for drunk driving, drunk driving, and all those things. And it was an accident waiting, just like Tammy. (02:56)

The former WWE manager added that although he loves Sunny, he has no sympathy for her:

“I have no sympathy for Tammy Sytch. I like her, but if she’s going to be such a detriment or actually a danger to all the other drivers. It could happen to you, it could happen to your daughter, your wife , your sister, anyone. You go down the road one day and here is a drunk driver who hits you and kills you,” Dutch Mantell added.

WWE Hall of Famer Sunny has often been on the wrong side of the law:

Tammy Sytch was one of the most famous female personalities during her time in WWE. However, she has been on a downward spiral since parting ways with the company.

WWE Hall of Famer Tammy Sytch was handcuffed and taken to jail. A judge revoked his bond. She is accused of driving while intoxicated and causing a fatal accident. Prosecutors argued she already had 3 impaired driving convictions, was driving without a license and would be a danger to the community.@fox35orlando https://t.co/qbot1UpcQd

The first diva was recently arrested and charged in connection with a fatal collision that killed another motorist in March. A police report into the case revealed that Sytch’s toxicology results determined that his blood alcohol level was three and a half times the legal limit of 0.08 for driving a motor vehicle.

However, this isn’t the first time Sunny has been in trouble with the law. In 2018, she was arrested twice for drunk driving, the second time serving eight months in prison. She has been arrested six times for drunk driving since her induction into the Hall of Fame in 2011.

She was also arrested in January this year for illegal possession of weapons.
