The former NXT star Velveteen Dream has been a controversial figure. He was a popular star on the brand in the past. His gimmick and in-ring skills helped him gain huge popularity. However, he was also a subject of controversy when he found himself at the end of allegations. There have been multiple allegations against the Velveteen Dream. He has been eyeing for a return to WWE. However, he has once found himself in trouble.
Velveteen Dream arrested twice this month
According to online court records, Clark is charged with first-degree misdemeanor counts of battery and trespassing. The charges were filed with the Orange County, Florida courts on August 20. Details on the allegations were not available late Monday night. Under “Marsy’s Law,” alleged victims in Florida can request that certain court documents be kept confidential.
Clark was arrested by Orlando Police and taken to the Orange County Jail. He was released after posting $1,200 cash bond on August 22. Clark’s first court appearance was to be an arraignment scheduled for September 28. However, his lawyer submitted a written plea of not guilty and waived his arraignment.
PWInsider has further noted that he was also arrested on 8/26 for an out of county warrant for “possession of drug paraphernalia” in Florida. He is currently listed as incarcerated at Orange County Jail in Orlando. The details behind the original warrant and the circumstances of Clark’s arrest are not yet clear. He allegedly had cocaine and destroyed evidence.
Fans had started #FireVelveteenDream trend on Twitter amid the accusations in 2020. He had sent explicit images to underage users on social media platforms. He denied the accusations and again during the Speaking Out movement in mid-June last year, which he did not comment on, and was involved in a car accident in late June as well. He was accused of sending explicit photos to underage users over Instagram.
However, amid all the accusations, Triple H had said in August 2020 that WWE looked into the allegations and found nothing against him. With all that in the past now, it turns out he wants to make a return to WWE NXT somewhere down the line.
