Bodyslam‘s Cassidy Haynes confirmed that Elgin’s absence from the NOAH event was due to his arrest in Japan last weekend for stealing protein powder, and is still in jail.
The speculation is that Elgin could potentially face up to five years in jail. Elgin was previously arrested in June 2021 for violating a protective order.
