The Florida Times-Union has published additional details regarding former WWE star Tyson Tomko’s arrest Monday in St. Augustine, Florida on a felony robbery charge.
At approximately 5:00 p.m. Monday, Tomko entered the CVS Pharmacy at 175 Florida 312 and demanded a pharmacist give him all the 15 mg and 30 mg oxycodone in the safe. The pharmacist told detectives Tomko held his hand under his shirt as if he was pointing something.
He had been in the store two days earlier to ask for the same painkiller, saying he lost his prescription. The pharmacist felt threatened Monday and gave Tomko three bottles with 210 pills.
At approximately 10:00 p.m., deputies were called to a Chili’s restaurant at 215 Florida 312 about a person possibly using narcotics in the bathroom. He was arrested after he was found in a handicap stall. A syringe was found in a wastebasket in the bathroom.
Two of the bottles were found at a nearby Carrabba’s restaurant, where a man meeting Tomko’s description had spent an hour in the bathroom.
The former WWE Superstar was taken to a nearby hospital and subequently transported to a nearby jail, where he was booked for robbery. He remains behind bars in St. Johns County Jail — bond was set at $7,500.
