Ric Flair claims he can’t attend this weekend’s Panthers-49ers game because of death threats. But that may not be the case.
According to the Charlotte Business Journal, Flair has an outstanding warrant for his arrest in Mecklenburg County, North Carolina.
On July 3, Mecklenburg District Court Judge Christy T. Mann signed an order for the arrest of one Richard Fliehr on contempt of court violations. Legal documents show the former wrestler failed to meet the terms of a June 18 order.
That order called for the wrestler to pay $32,352.51 in unpaid post-separation support and legal fees by 5 p.m. on June 27 and maintain support of his estranged spouse’s car lease and insurance and health insurance, documents show.
Of note: the court order says Flair/Fliehr’s failure to meet the deadline means he would be required to turn himself in and “shall remain in the custody of the Mecklenburg County Sheriff until he pays all sums required…”
Flair’s arrest is still outstanding to this day and his next court hearing is January 24th. Unless he never wants to go back to North Carolina, he better take care of his legal issues.
