WWE Hall of Famer Tammy ‘Sunny’ Sytch pleads no contest to DUI causing death

Syndication: Daytona Beach News-Journal Nigel Cook/News-Journal / USA TODAY NETWORK

Last spring, WWE Hall of Famer Tammy “Sunny” Sytch became embroiled in the most serious in a long list of alcohol-related legal issues — a car accident which resulted in the death of a 75 year grandfather of three. Police investigating the incident alleged Sytch was driving at a high-rate of speed when she crashed into Julian L. Lasseter’s stopped car, killing him instantly. They also reported her blood alcohol level was greater than .08 at the time of the accident.

Sytch originally pled not guilty to all charges, and has been in prison since May of 2022 after a judge revoked her bond in the cast citing her frequent DUI arrests as a sign she was a danger to the community. But Volusia County court documents obtained by TMZ show the 50 year old recently changed her plea to no contest on the charges of felony DUI causing death, driving with a suspended license causing death, and two of DUI with damage to property, and four of DUI with damage to a person.

Her trial was scheduled to begin next Monday (Aug. 21). A sentencing hearing is not currently on the court’s docket. When that happens, Sytch faces a maximum of maximum sentence of 25 years in prison.
