WWE icon, porn star’s sad demise
PORN star and WWE legend Sunny has been arrested on contempt of court and fugitive of justice charges and could be facing up to five years in jail, according to reports
The 45-year-old, real name Tammy Sytch, is said to be behind bars in New Jersey, America, with police describing her as a "fugitive from justice", The Sun reports.
TMZ broke the news that the WWE Hall of Famer was locked up again and is being held on an $AUD3200 bond.
According to Monmouth County Sheriffs' Office, Sytch is facing six charges of contempt-disobedience/resistance.
The charges are related to Sytch not appearing before the court in two different jurisdictions.
There is still no word on the exact circumstances of the situation that led to her being cuffed in New Jersey.
Sytch was arrested four times in Pennsylvania between 2015 and 2016 and pleaded guilty to a trio of DUIs after completing an initial rehab program.
Judge Joseph T. Matika sentenced her to 97 days in prison, only to then give her credit for 95 days in rehab and two days in jail. She was released without spending a single day behind bars - although she was warned that any trouble during her probation would have consequences.
But just 18 days later she was banged up again as she pleaded guilty to driving without a licence, driving an unregistered vehicle, operating a vehicle with no insurance and having licence plates displayed that did not belong to her.
She was fined nearly $2000 as part of an agreement made with prosecutors that led to them dropping the most severe charge of receiving stolen property. Prosecutors also dropped a charge of fraudulent use or removal of registered licensed plates.
In February 2017 she was paroled from Carbon County Correctional Facility in Pennsylvania after agreeing to attend a WWE-sponsored rehab.
Upon release, she was ordered to report directly to the in-patient drug rehabilitation centre, successfully complete any after-care recommendations and report to the probation office upon completion.
The conditions of release also ordered Sytch to perform 75 hours of community service and that she would have a "zero-tolerance" threshold for possession or consumption of alcohol and non-prescribed medication. That rule also applied for any missed urine screens without a legitimate excuse.
The release orders from February 2017 also show that her failure to adhere to the judge's order would result in a petition to revoke her parole. That petition was filed six months later on August 22, 2017.
A bench warrant for her arrest was issued the next day but was kept out of the public radar, and it still remains unclear what led to the court revoking Sytch's parole.
Based on court records, she could now be looking at five years in prison - based on the original verdict against her, which the court could opt to impose - plus any other additional penalties.
Working for the WWE as a presenter and manager, Sytch has since gone on to forge a successful career in the porn industry.
She has starred in one adult movie - Sunny Side Up: In Through the Backdoor - and offers webcam sessions on Skype.
