Former WWE superstar and NXT North American Champion Velveteen Dream (whose real name is Patrick Clark) was arrested last week in Florida.

While not too many details are known as of yet, Orange County, Florida records indicate that Clark was arrested on Friday, August 26, 2022, on an out-of-county warrant for “possession of drug paraphernalia.” It’s currently unclear if Clark is still incarcerated or has been released, but more information is likely to come in the following days.

The news of Clark’s arrest comes just days after the superstar returned to social media for the first time in a few years, sharing a new look at some of his costumes and trying to kickstart a movement to re-join WWE following his release in 2021. During his time WWE, Clark wrestled throughout NXT, and became a fan favorite as the Velveteen Dream, becoming the NXT North Champion in the process.

However, in 2020, two accusations were made against him during the Speaking Out movement, one of which was with pro wrestler Josh Fuller, while the other involved a 17-year-old whom Clark claimed he was giving wrestling advice to. At the time, then-WWE COO Triple H said that the company looked into the accusations and found nothing from it.
