WWE superstar Sonya Deville was arrested for gun possession in New Jersey

Sonya Deville was reportedly arrested in New Jersey recently for having a firearm in her vehicle. 

According to a social media post from Sean Ross Sapp and a report from TMZ, the 29-year-old began carrying a firearm following the home invasion incident she was victim to on August 16, 2020. She has been charged with one count of unlawful weapon possession -- handgun without permit.

Deville is said to have a permit for the firearm registered in Florida but not in New Jersey. She is in the process of having the charges thrown out. TMZ is reporting she is due in court later this month.

24-year-old South Carolina man, Philip A. Thomas II was arrested on Deville's property when police responded to the incident. He was charged with aggravated stalking, armed burglary of a dwelling, attempted armed kidnapping, and criminal mischief. He was later deemed to be "unfit for trial" following a competency hearing and transferred to a mental health facility. 

Deville and her fiancé, Toni Cassano, were recently featured in PEOPLE magazine after getting engaged last month. The SmackDown superstar proposed to Cassano at a wine cellar cave in Towaco, New Jersey.
