Arianne Andrew, who appears as Cameron for WWE, one of Brodus Clay’s “Funkadactyls,” has been suspended by the sports-entertainment organization, according to F4WOnline.com and PWInsider.com. F4WOnline.com reports that she has been suspended for 15 days. The suspension went into effect Friday and will expire on Sept. 14.
The suspension stems from the fallout of her arrest for driving under the influence on Aug. 24 in N. Hillsborough County, Florida. According to the police report, the WWE Diva blew a 0.20, more than twice the legal limit in Florida. She compounded the matter by attempting to bribe the arresting officer with $10,000 to “let her go because she would lose her job” and not notifying WWE officials of her run-in with the law prior to the news story surfacing online. A company spokesman told TMZ.com, “Ariane [Cameron] did not alert us to this matter, we are investigating and will take appropriate action.”
According to PWInsider.com, WWE officials are displeased that Andrew did not notify of them of her arrest, instead finding out about it online. Another factor leading to her suspension was embarrassment of the dance performer being spotlighted on the premiere episode of WWE’s children’s program on The CW, Saturday Morning Slam.
Andrew flew with the Raw roster to Australia last week for their live event tour of the country. After appearing at Thursday’s show in Brisbane, she did not appear at Friday’s event in Sydney, when her suspension went into effect, nor Saturday’s show in Melbourne.
