Former WWE star and Hall of Famer Tammy Lynn “Sunny” Sytch is behind bars after she was arrested in connection to a deadly three-car crash in Florida that was allegedly caused by her driving under the influence.

The 49-year-old was arrested Friday night and booked into the Volusia County Jail on charges related to a car crash in late March that killed a 75-year-old man, TMZ reported.

She faces several charges, including felony DUI manslaughter, the most serious of the offenses. In addition to this, Sytch was booked on eight other charges, most of which are DUI-related.

One charge accuses Sytch of driving on a suspended/revoked license, and then causing great bodily harm and/or death as a result. Her bond was set at more than $220,000.

On March 25, Sytch was driving a 2012 Mercedes-Benz when she rear-ended a Kia that was stopped at a traffic signal on North Yonge Street in the city of Ormond Beach, just north of Daytona Beach, WFLA reported, citing police.

The Kia's driver, Julian Lasseter, 75, was taken to a hospital but later died from the injuries he sustained in the crash, authorities said.

The impact caused Lasseter's car to strike a third vehicle, causing injuries to the GMC Yukon's 46-year-old driver and a passenger, whose names were not disclosed. They did not need to be hospitalized, police said.

Two unnamed witnesses said Sytch allegedly had been "driving at a high rate of speed" before hitting the Kia, TMZ reported, citing a traffic crash report from the Ormond Beach Police Department.

Sytch was brought to the Halifax Medical Center for treatment after the crash.

Police said that they believed Sytch was under the influence of alcohol at the time of the crash.

Her blood was taken by a search warrant served shortly after the crash. Her blood-alcohol level was found to be three-and-a-half times the legal limit while driving, WFTV reported, citing police.

If convicted on her new charges, the former WWE star could be facing serious prison time, according to TMZ.

It is unclear why Sytch is just being arrested for the March car crash.

Sytch has been arrested for drinking and driving six different times before her recent arrest.

She was also arrested in Keansburg, New Jersey, in January for allegedly unlawfully possessing a weapon and making terroristic threats. She was taken into custody at the Monmouth County jail on Jan. 13.
