A woman who was inducted into the Wrestling Hall of Fame has been charged in the March death of a 75-year-old man.

Tamara Lynn Sytch, who was known as โ€œSunnyโ€ in her WWE days, was arrested Friday by the Ormond Beach Police Department, according to WESH-TV.

Julian Lafrancis Lasseter, who was stopped at a traffic signal, died in the March 25 crash after he was struck by a vehicle in a chain-reaction accident of which Sytch has been accused of starting.

Police offered their condolences to the victim.

Should this star be booted from the hall of fame?

โ€œOur heartfelt thoughts remain with the Lasseter family as we proceed with this case,โ€ the. Ormond Beach Police Department said in a statement. โ€œThis is still a very active and ongoing investigation, and we will continue to pursue any evidence or leads.โ€

Lasseter was taken to a hospital after the accident but died there. The occupants of another car in the crash were injured, according to NewsDaytonaBeach.

Police said that toxicology reports showed that at the time of the accident, Sytch had a blood-alcohol content of 0.280, more than 3.5 times the legal limit.

She was charged with one count of DUI causing death, one count of causing death while operating a vehicle with a suspended or revoked license, four counts of DUI causing injury to a person and three counts of DUI property damage.

Sytch was jailed with a bond set at $227,500 but bonded out of Volusia County Jail on Saturday, according to WESH-TV.

Lasseterโ€™s daughter filed a suit against Sytch, accusing her of negligence. James Pente, identified as a friend of Lasseterโ€™s, was also named in the civil suit because he rented the car Sytch was driving at the time of the accident, according to NewsDaytonaBeach.

According to the Daily Mail, Sytch had six previous DWI arrests, including one in New Jersey in which she was charged with driving the wrong way on a one-way street.
