Velveteen Dream Multiple Arrests Update: Charges Dropped for One Arrest Case
As noted before, former WWE talent Velveteen Dream, real name Patrick Clark, was arrested twice this past August in Florida over various charges.
PWInsider’s Mike Johnson reported that the battery and trespassing charges against Clark stemming from his arrest on August 20th have been dropped based on recent court records. Johnson reported that a scheduled court hearing for September 28th for these charges was also recently cancelled by the court.
Johnson also reported that recent court records stated that the official reason for the dropped charges was due to prosecutors believed that they did not have enough evidence to go forward with the case and likely get a conviction result against Clark.
Clark is still currently facing legal issues related to his arrest in August 26th over his probation violation from past drug paraphernalia charges.
