Ex-WWE superstar Enzo Amore claims he’s been informed by police that he will NOT face criminal charges stemming from allegations he raped a woman in October 2017.
As we previously reported … Philomena Sheahan claimed publicly Amore — real name Eric Arndt — got her “f**ked up” in a Phoenix hotel room with 2 friends and repeatedly raped her.
But now, Amore’s attorney claims they were contacted by the Phoenix PD and were told, “there is insufficient evidence in this matter to warrant any criminal charges.”
Amore says they were also told, “The matter will not be transferred to the County Attorney for prosecution, and that their investigation and case is closed.”
“No charges were ever filed. The matter is closed,” Enzo’s attorney, Tom Cargill, adds.
We reached out to the Phoenix PD and the District Attorney’s Office — neither office confirmed Enzo’s case is closed. However, the Phoenix PD said they were looking into the claim and would get back to us.
As for Amore … his attorney says the 31-year-old 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.”
