The criminal case against Cash Wheeler has reportedly been dismissed.

Last August, AEW’s Cash Wheeler was arrested for assault with a firearm after he allegedly flashed a gun during an incident of road rage. Three months ago, it came out that a trial had been arranged for May 20, and that Wheeler was set to appear in court on that date to settle proceedings, however it now appears as if the scheduled hearing will not take place.

To provide an update, PWInsider are now reporting that the trial scheduled for May 20 has been cancelled, with the prosecution choosing not to proceed any further with the charges against Cash Wheeler.

“Next week’s scheduled trial against AEW’s Daniel “Cash” Wheeler will not go forward, has confirmed. This afternoon, the Prosecutor’s office filed “Nolle Prosequi.” The Latin phrase is used in court records as a legal notice that the Prosecution in a legal case has opted to drop and abandon the case. There is no word as to why the Prosecutors made that decision or why it took them until the week before the trial to drop prosecution. As of this morning, there was a pre-trial hearing set for tomorrow afternoon at 2 PM and a trial slated for 5/20. All of that has been canceled. Wheeler’s bond has been released and the case was officially closed as of 3 PM this afternoon. Wheeler can move forward without any additional worry about legal issues stemming from the situation.


It will be a relief to both Wheeler and AEW to be able to move past the situation, with attention now hopefully returning to matters inside the ring. Next, Cash will be part of team AEW as he, Dax Harwood, Eddie Kingston and Bryan Danielson look to defeat The Elite in Anarchy in the Arena at Double or Nothing, happening on May 26, six days after the court hearing was originally set to take place.

As always, we’ll aim to provide any further updates on the now dropped criminal case against Cash Wheeler as soon as we hear more.
