Michael Elgin Arrested For Theft In Japan

Michael Elgin was reportedly arrested in Japan for stealing.

Cassidy Haynes from Bodyslam.net has reported that Elgin was scheduled to wrestle on the July 10th Pro Wrestling NOAH event in Shizuoka and he was pulled from the card due to the fact that he was arrested last weekend for stealing protein powder.

According to the report, Elgin could face up to 5 years in jail.

Elgin was one-half of the GHC Tag Team Champions with Masa Kitamiya. The titles were vacated on July 12th and at the Budokan Hall event on July 16th, Timothy Thatcher and Hideki Suzuki defeated Kitamiya and Yoshiki Inamura to win the titles.

Elgin was fired by Impact Wrestling on June 26th, 2020, due to sexual assault allegations coming out of the "#SpeakingOut" movement on social media. He would later file a lawsuit against Impact on February 8th, 2022, in the Circuit Court of Davidson County, Tennessee.

In July of 2021, Elgin was arrested for violating a protection order filed by his ex-fiancee.
