Prosecutor’s Office Files “Nolle Prosequi” In Cash Wheeler’s Aggravated Assault Case

Prosecutor’s Office Files “Nolle Prosequi” In Cash Wheeler’s Aggravated Assault Case

Last August, Cash Wheeler was arrested following an alleged road rage incident where it is claimed he pulled a firearm on another driver. Subsequently, the AEW star pleaded not guilty, and a trial date was set for May 20th, 2024, with it understood that if he was found guilty, he could face five years in prison, probation, and a fine. However, it has now been noted that the prosecutor’s office has filed “nolle prosequi,” which means “unwilling to pursue.” Why this decision has been made is unclear, but it means Wheeler is in the clear.

36-year-old Wheeler broke into the wrestling business in 2005, and nine years later received his big break, signing with WWE and becoming Dash Wilder. Almost immediately, he would be partnered with Dax Harwood, who was going by the name Scott Dawson at the time, and together, they became one of the most successful tag teams in WWE history. Still, due to being unhappy with how they were being presented, it’s known they wanted to leave the company, and after being released in 2020, would join AEW, where they have been presented as featured performers ever since.
