WWE Hall of Famer “Superfly” Jimmy Snuka posted a $100,000 bail and is now out of jail. His release came a few hours after he was booked.
Lehigh Valley District Attorney James Martin said that Snuka surrendered himself to authorities in Pennsylvania and was not arrested at home as it was reported by The Morning Call yesterday. After he was released from jail, Snuka also gave up his passport.
Snuka was arrested after a grand jury found conflicting statements and inconsistencies he gave to police during the years after the 1983 death of his mistress Nancy Argentino. The coverage of the incident in his autobiography also did not help as it differed from the statements he originally gave back then.
During the press conference, the District Attorney also revealed that the jury saw over two dozen evidences from the case and new witnesses who came forward after the DA reopened the case 30 years after it went cold.
The former WWE wrestler now has his first date with the judge on September 21, facing charges of third degree murder and involuntary manslaughter.
