WWE's Lacey Evans, Canadian police comment on Edmonton traffic stop

After Lacey Evans' video clip of a Canadian traffic stop went viral, both she and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police have offered their side as to what happened.

Evans (real name Macey Estrella-Kadlec) posted a video where she was pulled over by RCMP in Edmonton where WWE was in town for a Saturday house show. In the clip, the officer is trying to explain the ticket after giving her license back and Evans, jumping into character, asked him if he knew who she was. He said he didn't know and asked, "Who's Lacey Evans?" when she said her name. She grabbed the ticket and said she'd pay for it, adding "Canada is terrible".

As of Monday afternoon, the video had been viewed more than 2.1 million times.

Evans released a statement on Twitter Monday morning, saying that as a U.S. Marine, she doesn't condone, agree, or promote disrespecting law enforcement officials or making their jobs harder and that the video was created by "both parties" to promote the live show, signing the statement "Sgt. Estrella".

She also released a statement to CTV News in Edmonton: "My character is a sassy bad guy so I play the role often. The general public now believe this interaction was real when the officer and I planned to start recording and have him walk up again with the citation in hand. As prior law enforcement myself, I didn't expect people to honestly believe this was real considering I am an entertainer and was in town for a performance."

However, in a statement from RCMP Corporal Chris Warren to CTV News, the traffic stop was legitimate and wasn't staged: "That's news to me. I know the original traffic stop was legitimate and I don't have any further information at this time."

If you need to explain the joke, or excuse the angle, don't do them unless something goes wrong.

So this was on the way to Edmonton from the show I went to... and to me, this is absolutely hilarious! But I knew about her military background and knew immediately that it was staged... People who don't watch wrestling or pay attention to the little things that people say in throwaway phrases wouldn't know.

The actual video is funny IMO.

I also thought it was funny. Unfortunately in 2019 people read way too far into everything looking for reasons they can justify being offended so that they can look righteous on the internet.

She got stopped for real. She most likely got a real ticket and was asked what she was doing/where she was going. From there she likely had a nice chat with the officer (I'm sure she mentioned she was MP), got her phone out and had a little fun. Probably made that dude's week, whether he'd heard of her or not. I'm sure he's a fan now!

I mean, I know the right thing to do during a traffic stop is to take your shirt off and try to fight the officer while you let your employer handle the PR (which also probably would have made that cop's day), but I'll hand it to Lacy for handling the drama herself.

Can we have a "Like" button for posts? I want to "like" this post lol.

I think the reason why it was so funny for me is because at the wrestling show on Friday she cut this whole promo about how terrible Canada was and how irrelevant Calgary was and "Hart who?" and all that, and this just added to it for me lol
