WWE NIL ATHLETE ARRESTED ON SEXUAL BATTERY CHARGE

By Mike Johnson on 2022-08-04 08:56:00

WWE Next in Line (NIL) signee Albert James (AJ) Ferrari has been charged with one felony count of sexual battery according to The Oklahoman.   A warrant was issued for his arrest yesterday.  The Payne County Sheriff's Office in Oklahoma lists a Albert James Ferrari, 21, as having been bonded out of their jail in the last 24 hours. 

Last month, Ferrari was dismissed from Oklahoma State University's wrestling team after they became aware of the sexual assault investigation against him. 

Derek Chance, Ferrari's attorney, previously denied Ferrai's guilt to The O'Colly:

"The allegations against AJ are false. It is unfortunate that a student athlete can become a target, primarily because of their status as an elite athlete. AJ is cooperating with law enforcement and is confident the truth will come out. He appreciated his time at Okla State, but he and the university mutually agreed a change was appropriate,

 Ferrarri was seriously injured last January in a car wreck in Oklahoma.  At the time, ESPN's report notes:

According to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol, Ferrari was driving his 2019 Dodge Durango with Rodriguez as his passenger on Highway 33 near Perkins, Oklahoma, at about 8 p.m., when he "attempted to pass 3 vehicles while cresting a hill." Ferrari's SUV hit an oncoming driver, then left the roadway to the left and overturned several times before coming to rest in a ditch.  The cause of the collision was listed as "passing in a no-passing zone."

Ferrari, 21, was signed in December 2020 to WWE's first ever NIL (Name, Image & Likeness) program, providing "a clear pathway from collegiate athletics to WWE."  At the time, he was one of the biggest names in college wrestling.  In freestyle, he earned a bronze medal at the 2018 Cadet World Championships and was the 2020 United States Junior National Champion.

There is no word on Ferrari's WWE NIL status as of this writing.
