ORMOND BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Authorities say a World Wrestling Entertainment Hall of Famer is accused of killing a man in a traffic accident while driving under the influence in central Florida.

Tamara “Sunny” Sytch was arrested Friday night.

She’s also charged with causing injury in a DUI crash and driving with a suspended license.

Ormond Beach police said in a social media post that the 49-year-old wrestler's blood alcohol content after the crash was 0.28. That's more than three times the legal limit in Florida.

The March 25 crash killed 75-year-old Julian Lasseter.

Police say Sytch's car plowed into a car stopped at a red light and pushed it into another car.

According to the Tampa Bay Times, Sytch was released from jail on Saturday after posting a $227,500 bond.

Editor's Note: A previous version of this story stated Sytch's blood alcohol content was 2.80.
