Jake Atlas has been arrested.
According to a police report, Atlas was arrested and charged with misdemeanor battery (domestic assault) on May 23. Police responded to the domestic violence call at 12:57 AM.
According to the police report, Atlas (Kenny Sanchez) was out drinking on May 22 and called his partner to come pick him up. Atlas wanted his partner to drink with him and then wanted his partner to go with him back to a female friend's house to take part in sexual activities. His partner said in the report, "he [the partner] showed the female half more attention than Atlas, which upset Atlas. This started a huge verbal argument between him and Atlas."
Atlas reportedly became physically aggressive and charged his partner. A witness stepped in to prevent an attack. Atlas' partner left, but Atlas followed, continued to yell, and again attempted to attack. Atlas scratched his victim and tore his tank top before the witness separated them, putting Atlas in a car.
The witness agreed to let Atlas in to get his dog, but didn't leave, continuing to argue with his partner. His partner then called the police, feeling Atlas would not leave or calm down.
Atlas signed a no-contact order agreeing to have no communication and to stay 500 feet away from the victim/his partner the same day he was arrested. He was released from jail the same day he was arrested. He is set to appear before Orange County, Florida court on June 28, where he will be officially arraigned at 7:30 AM.
Atlas is recovering from a torn ACL, suffered during an AEW Rampage taping in January. He underwent surgery in February.
Atlas and AEW have yet to publicly comment on the arrest.
