South Carolina man accused of trying to kidnap WWE star
TAMPA, FL (AP) — Sheriff’s officials in Florida say a 24-year-old South Carolina man is accused of invading the home of a WWE star near Tampa.
Phillip Thomas II was arrested Sunday after officials say he entered the home of wrestler Sonya DeVille, setting off a security alarm.
Hillsborough Sheriff’s officials say the victim spotted Thomas on the property after the alarm rang and called 911 as she fled with a guest in a car.
Arriving deputies found Thomas at the home with a knife, plastic zip ties, duct tape and mace.
He was arrested pending a Monday court hearing on armed kidnapping and other charges.
