According to a new report from PWInsider, former WWE NXT star Dan Matha, also known as Dorian Mak, was arrested on Monday for failing to appear at an April 24.
Matha had been ordered to appear in court after records indicated what was a traffic crash involving $12,500 in damages that took place on Plymouth Sorrento Road and Haas Road in Apopka, Florida back on March 28.
During the incident, Matha was charged with driving while utilizing a registration tag for his vehicle that had been expired over six months.
The officer noted in his report that when he was dispatched to the incident he “observed a silver Hyundai Sonata with severe front end damage.” The officer said when he “spoke to the driver of the vehicle, the driver advised he knew the registration was expired.” This was Matha’s second conviction for driving with an expired tag over six months.
The officer cited Matha with the following citation(s):
320.07(3)(c)(3) - The operation of any motor vehicle without having attached thereto a registration license plate and validation stickers, or the use of any mobile home without having attached thereto a mobile home sticker, for the current registration period shall subject the owner thereof, if he or she is present, or, if the owner is not present, the operator thereof to the following penalty provisions:
(c) Any person whose motor vehicle or mobile home registration has been expired for more than 6 months, upon a second or subsequent offense, commits a misdemeanor of the second degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082 or s. 775.083.
It was noted in the incident report that Matha was not impaired during the time of the crash and that the crash resulted in “serious injury”, which is believed to refer as Matha himself being hurt. Matha has previously made reference on social media stating that he was injured in a car wreck.
Also, as noted in the March incident report, Matha had been previously charged several times over the last year with driving without a license, most recently in February 2020.
Back on June 24, a warrant had been issued for Matha’s arrest after he failed to appear ifor his April court appearance over the March 28 crash incident. Recent court records indicate Matha was arrested on Monday at 3855 South John Young Parkway at 12:32 PM local time, and later released on his own recognizance. He is currently scheduled for a new hearing on September 2 at 7:30 am local time.
The 32 year-old Matha signed with WWE back in 2015, and had been training at the Performance Center while performing on NXT events, most notably as one half of the Outliers with current Raw star Riddick Moss.
Matha was released earlier this year as part of the financial cutbacks made by WWE due to COVID-19. His last appearance was in a loss to Tyler Breeze at the March 7 live NXT event in Orlando, Florida
