Former WWE star Tammy Sytch, better known as Sunny, has been accused by Florida police of causing a fatal car accident while under the influence of alcohol last month.

The 49-year-old has not been charged but allegedly crashed her 2012 Mercedes into the back of a 2013 Kia Sorento, with both Sytch and a 75-year-old man taken to hospital for their injuries.

The man, identified as Julian Lafrancis Lasseter, ultimately died, police report.

Reports claim that Sytch had been "driving at a high rate of speed" before the collision, and police believe the former WWE star was drunk at the time of the crash, with blood samples taken from Sytch but results yet to be released.

A statement from police read: "The Ormond Beach Police Department Traffic Unit is actively investigating the crash. The investigation may lead to criminal charges, which are pending toxicology results.

"OBPD has requested an expedited timeframe on the processing of these samples and the results will be made available as soon as the department receives them."

A third car was involved in the incident but the passengers did not require medical attention for their injuries.

Sytch, a WWE Hall of Famer who wrestled under the names "Sunny" and "Lynn Sytch" has at least six other DWI (driving while intoxicated) arrests, with one as recent as 2019 for driving the wrong way down a one-way street.

The Hall of Famer was also arrested five times in one month for a variety of charges including disorderly conduct and third-degree burglary.

Sytch has been in and out of prison on a number of parole violations, and just this year was arrested in New Jersey for allegedly trying to stab a lover with a pair of scissors.

She was charged with unlawfully possessing a weapon and making terroristic threats.

The original pin-up star of the WWE has had frequent run-ins with the law, with Daily Star reporting numerous occasions of Sytch having parole hearings, arrests and charges brought down on her.

In January 2013, Sytch spent 114 days in jail for breaking a protective order, and between May and June 2015 she was arrested for driving while drunk on three separate occasions.

She avoided a 90-day jail time sentence because she had just spent 97 days in rehab, but Sytch was then charged with violating her parole and sent to prison.
