We have learned that Sean Waltman was arrested and that is the reason why he did not board the flight out to the United Kingdom for the IPW: UK show. He was arrested by Los Angeles Airport PD on Saturday 4/29 at 12:45 am and charged with a felony with his bail set at $35,000. So, it looks like he was attempting to make it to the show before he was stopped by police. We have not heard exactly what the reason was for his felony charge.
According to Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department, he was released on Sunday evening at 6:23 pm local time. Shortly after that is when friends began hearing from him again and word got out that he was doing ok.
There were a lot of people (fans and people in the wrestling business) that were concerned for his well-being and the fact that he went silent on social media added to that concern so we are just happy to hear that he is ok. If we hear more on what happened at the airport from the LA Sheriff’s Dept, then we will pass it along.
UPDATE: Waltman noted on Twitter that his issues were not drug related.
I've had a crazy weekend. I'll get into it on the show Wednesday. Way too much to tweet about. Still mentally strong & healthy. No relapse.
