Enzo Amore just announced on Twitter that he will not face criminal charges after being accused of sexual assault by Philomena Sheahan earlier this year.
Amore posted a letter from his attorney that disclosed there was insufficient evidence for the case to continue and the Phoenix Police Department had officially closed the investigation.
"[Amore] is working diligently toward his next venture in the entertainment industry and looks forward to reconnecting with his fans in a big way in the very near future," it read.
Sheahan's allegation ultimately leads to Amore's firing, but early reports had WWE decision to releases Enzo based in his neglecting to inform them of the accusations. However, in this document, Enzo's attorney asserts that Enzo was never aware of the charges and thus could never hide them from WWE.
This all began when Sheahan took her account public in a January tweet:
“OKAY..it’s been long enough & I have been so so scared to share this," she wrote. "I was raped in mid-October by the WWE Enzo Amore (also known as Eric Arden) & Tyler Grosso &
Sheahan claims that on Oct. 19, Arndt, Grosso and a third accomplice, who was female, intentionally got her intoxicated, feeding her "coke, meth, [and] weed" until she "went into psychosis." She says that she was left alone with Arndt, who restrained her and forced himself on her. She also claims that Arndt's accomplices knew exactly what he would do once they'd left.
The Phoenix Police Department confirmed that they'd responded to a call on Oct. 23 concerning a sexual assault that matches the victim's description, and the case has been under investigation ever since.
The only words Enzo has uttered were made their an attorney in his official denial.
"Over the last two days, Philomena Sheahan has made multiple public accusations against Eric Arndt (also known as Enzo Amore with the WWE), including allegations of sexual misconduct concerning an October 2017 incident in Phoenix," the unnamed lawyer said. "Mr. Arndt fully and unequivocally denies those accusations."
In addition to the denial, the attorney also claimed Amore has been cooperating with police during the investigation. He also does not plan to make any other statements
"He is cooperating with the authorities in this matter and looks forward to having it resolved in a timely manner," the attorney said. "Neither Mr. Arndt nor his counsel will be making any further public comments on this matter."
Sheahan had a few logical holes poked into her claims by a close friend Sam Cook. Citing text messages that imply Sheahan and Emore's sexual encounter was consensual, Cook appeared to find case-altering evidence in favor of Amore. However, Philomena addressed those text message receipts on her Twitter account.
While Sheahan admits to sending the compromising texts, she's distanced herself from their potency by saying she was still under the influence of drugs.
The smoking gun in Cook's YouTube citizen trial is a text sent by Sheahan bragging about sleeping with a "famous wrestler." This not only carries connotations of consensual sex but by Sheahan glorifying the experience, Enzo's denial gets some validation.
Cook would continue to assert that behavior like this from Sheahan is not surprising, as she has a history of being unreliable.
"What she's saying is not true. And it's very odd that of all people that this happened to that she randomly gets to be on f—ng TMZ and Forbes magazine writes an article I mean this is so f—ing insane...She's not a credible person
Sheahan has been in and out of psychiatric institution the alleged incident with Amore. Even more, Sheahan admits to attempting to take her own life by taking 16 times the prescribed amount of Trazadone, an antidepressant.
Sean went on to explain in her latest video that her trip to the mental hospital earned her several alarming diagnoses.0comments
Shean has since deleted her Twitter account.
