Cash Wheeler was arrested Friday morning in Orlando, Florida

AEW’s Cash Wheeler was taken into custody earlier today by authorities from the Orlando Police Department and charged with one count of aggravated assault with a firearm. Initial information about the apprehension was brought to light by the Orlando Sentinel.

Daniel Wheeler, better known in wrestling circles as Cash Wheeler, is a member of the tag team FTR with Dax Harwood. They hold the AEW tag-team championship.

Based on a sworn declaration provided to law enforcement, Daniel Matta was traveling west on I-4 near South Street during the morning of July 27. He then observed a Jeep Gladiator weaving through traffic behind him. This vehicle subsequently overtook him by utilizing the right shoulder of the road. He then noticed the driver, “a white male with a beard pointing a black semi-automatic handgun out of the driver’s window at him with a strong stare.” Matta later identified Wheeler as the driver.

Wheeler appeared in court Friday afternoon. Bail was set at $2,500, and Wheeler is forbidden from possessing a firearm or having contact with the alleged victims until the case is decided.
