According to a Mexican newspaper and reported here by PW Torch, Psicosis has allegedly been arrested. If this is indeed all true, then add another name to the sad list of self-destruction. Very surreal stuff:
El Mexicano newspaper reports that Psicosis (Dionicio Castellanos) was arrested at 10:25 p.m. on Monday night in Playas de Rosarito, which is 35 minutes south of the U.S. border in Tijuana. According to the report, Psicosis asked to borrow a car from a nearby resident. The resident accuses Psicosis of threatening him with a pistol wrapped in a towel when he refused to lend the black Mitsubishi to him.
Psicosis reportedly took off in the car and crashed into several vehicles after police unsuccessfully tried to stop him. An 18-year old woman, who is three months pregnant, was inside one of the cars that he struck.
When police caught up to Psicosis, he initially resisted arrest before he was taken into custody. Police searched the stolen car and found what appeared to be the weapon Psicosis flashed before taking the car. It was a toy pistol from the Buzz Bee Toys company, which specializes in manufacturing water guns.
WWE was not mentioned in the article, but the article made it clear that Psicosis is a wrestler. They focused on it being a real-life battle between rudos (Psicosis) and technicos (police) that reflected the drama of a lucha libre show.
If true, this sucks. He always came across as a real fun-loving guy on TV.
RD had been persued to shut down back in 2000 by the WWF laywers. But he also seems to have at least some inside sources because of the fact that he was tipped off about the Gimmick Battle Royal far before even Metzler found out.
