It was reported on August 18th, 2023 that Cash Wheeler (real name Daniel Wheeler) had been arrested on charges of aggravated assault with a firearm. The alleged incident took place on July 27th.

According to a police report, Wheeler’s alleged victim claims that the star was “pointing a black semi-automatic handgun out of the driver’s window at him with a strong stare.” The alleged victim stated that he “feared for his life.”

Court documents showed that Wheeler entered a plea of not guilty on August 3rd. In the not guilty plea, it was also revealed that he is requesting a jury trial.

An arraignment hearing in front of Judge Vincent Falcone III took place on the 20th of February but Wheeler was not present. The charge against Wheeler is listed as Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon (Assault) which is a third-degree felony. That crime can carry a punishment of five years imprisonment along with five years probation and a $5,000 fine.
