BUSHNELL, Fla. (TND) — A woman in Florida who some might recognize as a professional wrestler was arrested on marijuana charges after a traffic stop.

Her yellow jeep “could not remain in the lane it was traveling,” according to the arrest report from the evening of Thursday, Dec. 14.

It said a sergeant saw it “cross over the yellow and white lines on the roadway several times … then conducted a stop on the vehicle to ensure the driver wasn’t having any health issues.”

Then, “As he approached the vehicle, he immediately smelled the odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle [and] the defendant was detained due to her stating there was marijuana in the vehicle, and she did not hold the medical marijuana card.”

A deputy took over the investigation, arrested Gionna Daddio, and searched the jeep.

“In a pink fuzz bag located on the back seat within arm’s reach of the defendant,” she reported finding “a small clear plastic bag containing a green leafy substance [and] a vape pen within the center console of the vehicle that contained an oil-like substance.”

Both reportedly tested positive for marijuana.

The arrest report said Daddio admitted “all the items inside the vehicle were hers.

“The defendant stated that she transports a lot of people in her vehicle, so she doesn’t know where the vape pen came from.

“The defendant stated she smokes marijuana but does not vape.”

Daddio, 29, was charged with illegal possession of a controlled substance and of 20 grams or less of cannabis, which are a felony and misdemeanor, respectively.
