More on Liv Morgan Marijuana Arrest

As noted before, Liv Morgan was arrested earlier this month in Florida for marijuana possession following an erratic driving incident.

PWInsider’s Mike Johnson reported that he was able to obtain a copy of Morgan’s arrest report detailing the reasons for her traffic stop and arrest.

The defendant (Gionna Daddio) Committed the offenses of possession of a controlled substance (THC oil ) a vape pen, pursuant to F.S.S 893.13.6a and F.S.S. 893.13.6b- Possession of Marijuana 20 grams or less, by unlawfully and willfully having in her possession a green leafy substance that field tested positive for marijuana within Sumter County to wit:

On 12/14/2023, at approximately 6:26 pm, Sgt. Otero observed a yellow jeep bearing Florida Tag [DELETED BY PWINSIDER] Traveling West on CR 476 Bushnell, Florida, within Sumter County. The vehicle could not remain in the lane it was traveling. Sgt. Otero observed the vehicle to cross over the yellow and white lines on the roadway several times. Sgt. Otero then conducted a stop on the vehicle to ensure the driver wasn’t having any health issues. Sgt. Otero explained as he approached the vehicle, he immediately smelled the odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle.

I Deputy E. Hillman arrived on scene as Sgt Otero was speaking with the defendant. Sgt. Otero asked the defendant to step out of the vehicle. The defendant was detained due to her stating there was marijuana in the vehicle and she did not hold a medical marijuana card. I then took over the investigation.

Upon contact with the defendant, I did a pat down of her person and placed her in the back of my patrol car. A search was done of the vehicle, and in a pink fuzz bag located on the back seat within arms reach of the defendant, I located a small clear plastic bag containing a green leafy substance. A continued search of the vehicle, I located a vape pen within the center console of the vehicle that contained an oil-like substance.

I conducted a presumptive field test on the green leafy substance and the oil-like substance in the vape pen, which all yielded a positive result for marijuana.

I read the defendant’s Miranda warning. Post-Miranda, the defendant stated the green leafy substance(marijuana) was hers, and all the items inside the vehicle were hers. The defendant stated that she transports a lot of people in her vehicle, so she doesn’t know where the Vape pen came from. The defendant stated she smokes marijuana but does not vape. The defendant stated that she does not have a medical marijuana card.

Due to the vape pen and green leafy substance all testing positive for marijuana, the defendant was placed under arrest. 

Johnson reported that Morgan’s statement to the officer about the vape pen that was found had belonged to someone else fits with the story that was going around within WWE following her arrest.

Johnson also reported that Morgan is currently scheduled to be officially arraigned in Sumter County, Florida this February.

Morgan reportedly was released from jail the same day following her posting a $3,000 bond.
