AEW World Tag Team Champion Cash Wheeler, real name Daniel Wheeler, turned himself in to Orlando authorities last night on an arrest warrant that had been issued for him in regard to a July 27 aggravated assault with a firearm charge. His next hearing is scheduled for today at 1 pm.
A live feed from the Ninth Judicial Court Circuit in Orlando streamed Wheeler’s arraignment earlier this morning. You can find the full video, as well as a transcription of the proceeding, below. Wheeler’s arraignment begins around the thirty-minute mark in the video.
Wheeler’s Lawyer: Standing To my right is Mr. Wheeler, Daniel Wheeler. He turned himself in late last night on a warrant by the Orlando Police Department; the charge was aggravated assault with a firearm; it’s a third-degree felony. We are requesting that the court set bond in the amount of $2,500, with no contact with the alleged victims in the affidavit and no possession of weapons. My client is 36 years old. He’s a US citizen, has no prior record, to my knowledge. He owns a home and Maitland. And so those are the reasons.
Judge: Let me just second. I didn’t get to see this affidavit. Let me take a look at it. Wait, it doesn’t appear…
Wheeler’s Lawyer: Your Honor, I don’t think he, I, haven’t seen the affidavit. But my understanding is he does not know who these people are.
Judge: Well, State, did you want to be heard on bond or conditions?
State Lawyer: No, Your Honor. Mr. Wheeler appears to have no other criminal history. It does appear to be a road rage-type incident; he allegedly flashed a handgun at the alleged victim. But given that he has no prior history and does not know the victim, the conditions that the defense has laid out, it doesn’t object to.
Judge: Thank you. All right, well, that sounds reasonable, $2500 for the bond. In addition to that, sir, you’re going to be ordered to have no contact with the victim or any other witnesses involved in the case; you’re also going to be ordered to have no weapons on or about your person. Now, that means that any weapons that you own that aren’t in the custody of law enforcement at this point are going to have to be turned in to the sheriff’s department pending the outcome in this case. And that’s to be done within 12 hours of your release. All right. So now, anything else, State?
State Lawyer: No, Your Honor.
