WWE star Liv Morgan’s criminal case in Sumter County, Florida has been officially closed, can confirm.

Morgan was arrested in December 2023 during a traffic stop and Morgan was arrested for possession of marijuana (not more than 20 grams), possession of drug equipment and possession of drugs, possibly synthetic cannabinoid after a sheriff's deputy saw the yellow jeep she was operating crossing over the white and yellow lines of a County Road.

The most serious charge against Morgan, possession of drugs, possibly synthetic cannabinoid, was dropped last month because the State of Florida had no way of proving its case.  An Assistant State Attorney in Sumter County told KOMONews, “In order to prove the charge possession of THC, the State is required to prove that the THC came from synthetic sources and was not derived from plant sources.  No labs in the State of Florida perform such tests, so we remanded it to county court as Possession of Cannabis.”

According to the arrest report, when a Sumter County Deputy approached Morgan's vehicle "the odor of marijuana was detected."

Although Morgan was slated for a 2/20 hearing in regard to the only charge left pending from her arrest,   The charge of possession of marijuana (not more than 20 grams), has learned that on 1/31, Morgan’s attorney entered a plea of Nolo-Contendere in regard to the charge.  That is a plea in which a defendant accepts conviction as though a guilty plea had been entered against them, but does not officially admit guilt to the charges against them. is told that a fine was imposed against Morgan.  Court records list an assessment of $543.00, but not any additional fines.  The charge of possession of marijuana (not more than 20 grams) is a first degree misdemeanor in Florida.  It can be punishable up to one year in jail or on probation, along with a $1,000 fine. Conviction of possession also results in a six month driving license suspension, random drug testing, and all the reimbursement of all fees related to the sentence.  Court records only refer to a fine being imposed.

As previously reported, there was no heat on Morgan from WWE management in the wake of the arrest.  Morgan returned to WWE from a shoulder injury at the 2024 Royal Rumble and is expected to perform at the WWE Elimination Chamber event later this month in Perth, Australia.
