In a startling development, former WWE Women’s Champion Liv Morgan, known for her electrifying performances in the ring, found herself on the wrong side of the law following a traffic incident in Sumter County, Florida.
Reports from respected sources PWInsider’s Mike Johnson and Village-News.com have confirmed the arrest, which occurred under dramatic circumstances on the evening of December 15th. Morgan, aged 29, whose real name is Gionna Daddio, was navigating a yellow jeep along a County Road when she reportedly veered across the white and yellow lines.
This erratic driving caught the attention of a vigilant sheriff’s deputy, who initiated a stop at around 6:30 P.M. on Thursday. What unfolded next was a series of events leading to Morgan's unexpected arrest. The deputy, upon approaching the vehicle, was greeted by the unmistakable odor of marijuana emanating from inside.
A subsequent search of Morgan’s jeep yielded a small plastic bag containing marijuana and a vape pen filled with an oil-like substance. Laboratory tests later confirmed the substance to be marijuana, compounding Morgan's legal woes.
Morgan's Arrest Details
Morgan was officially booked at 7:22 P.M. and faced charges including possession of marijuana (not exceeding 20 grams), possession of drug paraphernalia, and possession of drugs, suspected to be synthetic cannabinoids.
The bond for her release was set at a total of $3000, with $1000 for the marijuana possession and $2000 for the suspected synthetic cannabinoids. She managed to post bond and was released at 10:04 P.M. This arrest comes at a time when Morgan is already sidelined from WWE due to a significant shoulder injury sustained during an altercation with Rhea Ripley on the July 24th episode of WWE Raw.
This storyline injury was a creative way to grant Morgan time off for recovery. In lighter news, Morgan was recently spotted at the premiere of the "Iron Claw" movie, accompanying AEW World Champion MJF. While MJF playfully hinted at romantic links, it appears to be nothing more than a jest.
Throughout her illustrious WWE career, Liv Morgan has achieved notable success, including a reign as Smackdown Women’s Champion and two-time WWE Women’s Tag Team Champion alongside Raquel Rodriguez. Fans eagerly await any official update on her anticipated return to WWE television following her recovery and resolution of her legal situation.
