False Imprisonment: Case of Thomas Latimer aka Bram

Wrestling fans and TNA supporters are feeling some heat after Thomas Latimer, a talented wrestler from TNA Wrestling, is in trouble with Florida authorities. The official charges from The Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office are for domestic battery by strangulation and another for false imprisonment which count for two felony charges. It is said in the report that the officers observed evidence portraying the possibility of a physical altercation and their investigation revealed that after the couple had been arguing, the woman felt threatened and sought refuge in her bedroom. Bram followed her into the bedroom and closed the door. He refused to allow her to leave and pushed her onto the bed, keeping her confined by holding her neck. He is currently in jail and still awaiting trial.

Two Felonies Defined

These two felonies are extremely detrimental for the wrestling star as both are serious issues. Domestic violence or the willful intimidation, physical assault, battery, sexual assault and/or other abusive behavior as part of a systematic pattern of power and control perpetrated by one intimate partner against another is a serious matter that should always be confronted by the law. The latter issue, false imprisonment, is another serious allegation. This happens when one person forces someone else by threat, or secretly confining, abducting, imprisoning, or restraining another person without lawful authority against his or her will. That means not only did Bram hurt someone but he also confined them in an effort to secure his power over them.

Such allegations sound barbaric but unfortunately are common enough for false imprisonment to have its own specific law. The common infringement of false imprisonment of a person without consent or legal validation can be committed by words, acts or by both. It is also defined as an unlawful restraint of an individual’s personal liberty or freedom of movement. This is not to be confused with physical restraint in its entirety. In order for it be constituted as wrong, it is not necessary that the individual be actually confined or assaulted. It is to be noted that, there is no necessity in a false imprisonment case to prove that a person used physical violence or physically assaulted another person. It is sufficient to show that at any time or place the person in any way deprived another person of his/her liberty without adequate legal power.
