Emma’s Lawyer Says She Was Arrested Because of a Mistake

As reported this afternoon, WWE Diva Emma was arrested Monday in Hartford, Connecticut, near the site of RAW. According to the Hartford-based publication The Courant, she was arrested for shoplifting.

Police say Emma, who’s real name is Tenille Dashwood, was charged with sixth-degree larceny after she stole an item from the Wal-Mart department store located on 495 Flatbush Avenue, which is approximately three miles away from the site of Monday’s WWE event at the XL Center. The alleged theft was reported to police at approximately 1:00 p.m. and she was released at 2:13 p.m.

The WWE Diva appeared in community court Tuesday. According to her lawyer, Hubert Santos, she was told to participate in community service.

Santos said Dashwood’s arrest stemmed from a mistake. He told the publication that she was using the self-checkout machine at the Wal-Mart when she purchased approximately $30 of items, but forgot to pay for a case for an electronic device.

    Her booking so far has also been full of mistakes

    Her forgetting to pay could be used as a part of her storyline with Santino. Character-wise, she’s a bit of a dumbwit anyway.

    I don’t think that’s the type of free publicity that WWE wants for their talent.

  • Luke

    Compared to Swagger’s DUI, I’d suggest this is pretty minor…

  • xnyer

    If she paid for everything else this was a mistake……..Drops the charges already.

    she paid for everything else right?i think it was just a mistake. she doesn’t need to steal,she can just buy it,wwe pays her enough.Maybe she didn’t know how to use the machine.

    • PandaBread

      So true. That’s why I don’t use those things.

    I work at WM and the “loss prevention” ppl look for be excuses to nab ppl and the self checkouts suck, they tell you that something scans and it doesn’t. If it was under a certain amt, it will be swept away by wm

    Come on people. She didn’t purposely steal the case. You’re making it sound like she meant to do this. Self-checking at stores has it’s own faults, & this being one of them. But you can’t blame her. WWE pays her enough. There’s no reason why she would “steal” it.
