As noted before, AEW World Tag Team Champion Cash Wheeler of FTR was arrested after turning himself in last night after being charged with aggravated assault with a firearm in Florida.
His arraignment took place this morning in which the prosecution noted that the incident was “believed to be a road rage incident”. Wheeler allegedly “flashed a gun” at the other party during the incident and he does not know them personally.
Wheeler was ordered to turn in any weapons that were in his possession to the Orange County Sherriff’s Office within 12 hours of his release pending the resolution of the criminal case against him. He was also ordered to not get in any sort of contact with the victims or witnesses of the incident.
