Chyna was arrested for public intoxication just months before she was found dead.

As Gossip Cop reported, Chyna’s body was found in her bedroom in Redondo Beach, Calif., last month. She was 45. While her cause of death is still pending, the predominant theory is that drugs played a role.

And now it’s emerged that Chyna was actually struggling with alcohol use. According to TMZ, the former wrestler was discovered sleeping outside her apartment complex on a November morning. Police were called to the scene, and Chyna copped to drinking the night before and being unable to get her keys in the door.

She was reportedly slurring her speech, smelled of alcohol, and had bloodshot eyes, leading the cops to take her into custody for public intoxication. It’s not clear where the case stood at the time of her death. Investigators found several pill bottles at her bedside, and her manager believes she ultimately succumbed to an accidental overdose.

That said, the manager has also suggested Chyna was suffering from CTE, the debilitating brain disease caused by repeated head trauma. As Gossip Cop previously reported, he intended to have the star’s brain donated for research purposes. Gossip Cop will continue to have updates as appropriate.
