Chyna was arrested for public intoxication months before her death, authorities reveal.
According to TMZ, the former wrestler “was seriously struggling before she died — so much so, police found her wasted and passed out on the ground outside her apartment building.”
Law enforcement received a call in November about a woman lying unconscious in the early morning in Redondo Beach, CA. Authorities found Chyna passed out. Police tell the website that Chyna had slurred speech and bloodshot eyes; she also smelled of alcohol.

Police say that Chyna admitted to drinking wine the night prior and chose to sleep outside her apartment because she was struggling with her keys. The former WWE star also had around $20k in cash that she claimed was earned at an autograph session.
Paramedics determined that Chyna was too drunk to take care of herself, and police arrested her for public intoxication.
As reported, Chyna was found dead on April 20. Her official cause of death is still being investigated and hasn’t been fully released.
