The Pro Wrestling Sheet obtained the Phoenix Police Department’s report regarding the allegations of Eric Arndt (Enzo Amore) back in 2017.
Phoenix PD’s report backs up Arndt’s claim that he didn’t hide the investigation from the WWE. According to the report, while they began working the case on October 23, they never contacted Arndt until his accuser made her claims public in January 2018.
WWE sources stated that Arndt’s release was due to a lack of communication and failing to bring the investigation to the higher-ups prior to it becoming public. He claimed, however, that it couldn’t be true since he didn’t know about the investigation until went public. The case going public was also what caused a witness to come forward, who was a former friend of Arndt’s accuser and provide evidence that Philomena Sheahan was untruthful in her grievances against the former Amore.
Below is the official statement from Phoenix PD regarding Arndt’s case.
In reviewing the totality of this investigation, it does not warrant the submission for any criminal charges at this time. There is insufficient evidence to corroborate the victim’s disclosure of sexual assault. There were no witnesses to the incident and the forensic examination and crime lab results do not provide evidence of a sexual assault at this time.
The suspect did not give a direct statement to police, but did give an indirect statement through his attorney that all contact with the victim was consensual.
Cell phone and social media data and information contradict some of the initial statements about the incident and there is no cell phone or social media data that can corroborate the sexual assault disclosure.
Witness statements made to law enforcement contradict the victim’s statements.
Video surveillance does confirm that the parties involved were together at the Clarendon Hotel on the night in question. The footage also confirms the victim leaving that morning. The video surveillance does not capture or corroborate the disclosure of sexual assault.
The facts of the case do not allow this case to proceed at this time. In the event that additional evidence comes to light, that can corroborate the victim’s disclosure of sexual assault, this case can be re-opened and further investigated. Until such evidence is located or provided this case will be closed.
