Tammy Sytch, known to wrestling fans as WWE Hall of Famer Sunny, was arrested in Florida last week and charged with DUI Manslaughter and eight other offenses stemming from a March traffic incident which left one man dead. Bail was set at $227,500, which she posted with the help of a local bondsman.

Citing Sytch’s lengthy history of drunk driving, the state requested pretrial detention. At a hearing today (May 13), Judge Karen Foxman granted that request, stating:

“The defendant is a threat to the community and I do not feel that a monitor would protect the community because it’s too easy to evade.”

Daytona Beach reporter Claire Metz of WESH 2 was in court and posted updates, including this video of the judges ruling:

State Attorney R.J. Larizza of Florida’s 7th Circuit issued a statement after Sytch’s bond was revoked:

“A deadly driver will reside behind bars until her case is resolved. A serious threat to the driving public has been removed.”

Sytch will be arraigned on May 31. She and her boyfriend James Pente also face a civil suit filed by the family of Julian Lasseter, the 75 year old man who died when the car Sytch was driving rear ended his stopped vehicle on Mar. 25.
