Terri Runnels, former WWE star, was arrested at an American airport for carrying a loaded firearm. Her act of carrying this firearm qualified as a class 3 felony. Due to this, she could be facing up to 5 years in jail.
She was an Attitude Era icon and extremely popular among the WWE universe back in the 90s and 2000s. Terri, who is 52 now, was one of the biggest stars in WWE.
According to reports, she was arrested in Florida at 7:32 am for possession of the gun. Reports in TMZ have confirmed that she was arrested at Tampa International Airport.
She was arrested for carrying a loaded Glock 9mm. It had at least 11 hollow-tipped bullets, which cause major damage upon impact. She was charged a fine of $2000 and then released from Hillsborough County Sheriff’s office.
She was earlier married to Goldust (real name Dustin Rhodes) and is listed as 5’0″, 119 pounds, blue eyes, and blonde hair on her booking sheet in the sheriff’s office. However, she is not going to get away only with a fine of $2000. She has committed a class 3 felony and could face up to 5 years of jail time along with a $5000 fine.
This is not the first time she will be going to court. Her first time was when she divorced Dustin Rhodes. Later, she dated wrestler New Jack for five years. She had to go to court for this relationship as well. After the break, Jack was sharing Terri’s nude pictures. A Florida judge then ordered him to stop the activity two years post the split.
Apart from some in-ring action, Terri spent most of her days in WWE as a manager. She managed some of the biggest stars from the WWE universe.
Let us wait and see the punishment she receives for the crime committed.
