  • Pro Wrestler Chasyn Rance "Tool Academy 3" Arrested for Sex with a Minor,3826378.story

    The girl's mother read her daughter's diary in March and discovered that her daughter had written that she "felt bad" about some things she had done in Orlando, an arrest report shows.

    In the diary, the girl admitted drinking alcohol, smoking marijuana and having intercourse with Rance, then 25, at his Orlando home after one of his wrestling matches, the report said.

    The girl's mother contacted the Orange County Sheriff's Office from California about the alleged sexual encounters, but initially did not permit her daughter to speak with an Orange County investigator.

    The mother took the girl to the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's office and was told she was in the wrong jurisdiction.

    The girl, her mother and attorney James Ledford appeared at the Orange County Sheriff's Office on April 9, the report said.

    During the interview, the girl said she had more than one sexual encounter with Rance at his Orlando home.

    She also said that she had spent time with him at the beach and slept in the same bed without having sex and still communicated with him regularly through phone calls and text messages.

    The girl said the two had talked about getting married after she gets older, but that she thought he should "go to jail for about a hundred years" because he was bad and cheated on his girlfriends, according to the report.

    During a series of three phone calls recorded at the sheriff's office in April, Rance told the girl that he thought she was "cool" and that he had been drunk during their first sexual encounter.

    "I didn't want to do that. I was waiting for a long time," he said, according to the report. "I was going to wait until you were like 18." Rance further told the girl that he didn't think he had forced her to have sex with him, said she was attractive and mature-looking and apologized for hurting her.

    The Orlando Sentinel is not naming the girl or her family members because she is underage. Ledford, the girl's family's attorney, declined to speak Wednesday. Rance also declined to speak.

    Rance was released from the Orange County Jail Monday on $3,500 bond, according to jail records.

    The 181-pound University of Central Florida graduate describes himself on his website using the phrase "Not Cocky."

    His appearance on Tool Academy, which seeks to teach romantic relationship skills to so-called bad boys, aired Feb. 14. Rance, who had been assigned the nickname "Wrestlin' Tool," walked off during the first episode.

    Another Orlando resident, Jacob Tapia, ultimately won the show's $100,000 top prize.

    Rance is next scheduled to wrestle on Saturday at the Salvation Army Gymnasium in Sanford.

    I watched Tool Academy and I knew as soon as I saw him he was gonna be a scum bag. Who would've thought that I was actually right about something? I don't think "tool" is a good enough word.

      I seen him a few ROH shows when he was with the YRR with Kenny King and Sal Rinauro (at the time). Yeah, he was a douche then, he was douche on Tool Academy, and now he's moved onto larger douche status. He was drunk during their first encoutner...LMFAO. Like that's supposed to be an excuse to the police. I honestly though his name was a stage name. I usually don't like to judge people until I've seen more of them, but sometimes, every so often, your first impression is dead on.

        I met the guy in person at a ROH fan signing, this personally comes as a shock.
