But in recent years, Sunny has become better known for her antics outside the ring. in 2012, she was busted five times in four weeks for a slew of charges. She ended up serving 114 days in a Connecticut prison.
She also had a brief foray into the world of pornography in 2016 when she starred in a Vivid Entertainment release entitled Sunny Side Up: In Through the Backdoor .
In the intervening years, Sunny has had a mish-mash of brushes with the law, including being a fugitive.
