Patrick Clark, better known to wrestling fans as Velveteen Dream, was arrested on Friday in Orange County, Florida. The arrest was due to an out-of-county arrest warrant for possession of drug paraphernalia. Clark was once seen as one of WWE's hottest prospects during his time on the NXT brand, but he was hit with a pair of sexual misconduct allegations in 2020 regarding minors. While WWE claimed it found no wrongdoing from its internal investigation, Dream was still off television while healing from injuries suffered in a car accident and was poorly received by fans upon his return.
He was released from WWE in May 2021 after being off TV for five months. Clark then released a lengthy statement on Instagram attempting to give his side of the story, consistently claiming innocence regarding the misconduct allegations. He has not wrestled in any capacity since his release.
Update: Per PWInsider, this was Clark's second arrest this month. He was also arrested on Aug. 20 for First Degree Battery and Trespassing and was let out on bond the following day. His arraignment hearing has since been canceled and the victim has requested confidentiality.
