Velveteen Dream was in hot water late last year.
While researching a different story, Fightful was sent an affidavit for an arrest warrant for Patrick Clark, also known as WWE's Velveteen Dream. However, it was later deemed that the situation was "not suitable for prosecution."
A man named Edgar Rodriguez reported a criminal mischief to Orlando PD on November 30, 2019, stating that he parked his 2015 Infiniti QX70 on North Magnolia avenue. When he returned to the vehicle, he found his driver's side window smashed, and the incident was caught on the building's surveillance footage. The footage featured a black man in a pink shirt and dark colored pants approaching the vehicle, and motioning as if he was smashing the window, before riding off in a blue Ford Mustang. On December 18, Rodriguez contacted an officer, saying he saw the same man in the same car in his parking garage. The man was identified as Velveteen Dream after a December 29 police lineup, and the Mustang's license plate showed it was registered to Clark (Dream). The damage was stated to equal $1800 according to the warrant affidavit.
A warrant was issued for the arrest of Clark for criminal mischief with bail set at $1000. However, on February 11, the warrant for arrest was recalled, though no further details were given.
On February 11, the following was issued.
COMES NOW the State of Florida, by and through the undersigned Assistant State Attorney and states that:
1. From the investigation which has been made, it is the opinion of the writer that this case is not suitable for prosecution.
2. This action is taken to clear the records and to release subject's bond if any has been posted responsive to the above charge(s). If in custody, defendant should be released PROVIDED THERE ARE NO OTHER CHARGES OR HOLDS AGAINST HIM
The warrant was returned unserved on February 12 and no further action was pursued by the Orlando PD. No reason was specified for the change, and no information about Clark's contact with Orlando PD was revealed. You can find additional information on the situation at the Orange County Clerk website.
On Friday, Dream alleged that his phone was hacked after explicit photos and allegations of inappropriate conversations emerged.
Fightful has reached out to WWE for statement on the matter.
