Following Breaking AP Report of Alleged Domestic Violence by Dan Rodimer, DCCC Chairwoman Cheri Bustos Calls on NRCC, Kevin McCarthy to Disavow Their Endorsed Candidate  

911 Records Allege Domestic Violence and $200k In Stolen Items, Including $20k Cash, Jewelry and Firearms

A new Associated Press report proves, once again, why Dangerous Dan Rodimer is unfit to serve Nevada in Congress, as a new AP report shows that twice in 2018, Las Vegas police responded to 911 calls made from his home alleging domestic violence and $200,000 in property stolen by Rodimer, including firearms, jewelry and $20,000 in cash.

These calls from 2018 are not the first time Rodimer has had direct confrontations with law enforcement. The failed former WWE wrestler who still calls himself “Big Dan” was accused of assault in three separate incidents in Florida from 2010 to 2013. Police records also show that in 2006 a neighbor called police to the wrestler’s apartment in Dunedin, Florida, reporting what appeared to be a domestic disturbance between Rodimer and his then-girlfriend.

And in yet another case, Dangerous Dan Rodimer pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor battery charge for a 2010 confrontation at a Waffle House that resulted in Rodimer’s victim suffering “intracranial bleeding” and requiring medical care.

Statement from DCCC Chairwoman Cheri Bustos:

“Dan Rodimer’s violent and criminal past makes him unfit to ask for votes from, let alone serve, the families of Southern Nevada. House Republicans who have lined up behind Rodimer, including Minority Leader McCarthy and the NRCC, have a responsibility to cut ties with their candidate given his dangerous and violent past.”

AP: Ex-wrestler running for Congress subject of 911 calls


Las Vegas police responded twice to 911 calls from Republican congressional candidate Dan Rodimer’s now-wife in 2018 alleging domestic violence and that Rodimer had stolen guns and jewelry belonging to her, according to police records.

In neither case did police arrest or detain Rodimer. No charges were filed. In the initial incident July 20, 2018, police wrote “there was no crime, just a verbal argument and we did not want to embarrass them or make them any more upset.”

The second incident occurred on Nov. 30 of the same year. Rodimer’s then-girlfriend, Sarah Duffy, called 911 saying Rodimer took $200,000 in cash, jewelry and guns from their house before leaving five days earlier, later sending her photographs of what he took. Duffy said she thought Rodimer had spent the days since then at a casino, but police couldn’t find him there.


On the 911 call, Duffy can be heard sorting through several objects trying to determine which guns were missing. “There are so many in here, I’m trying to see,” she tells the 911 operator.


The 2018 calls aren’t Rodimer’s only brushes with law enforcement. A former WWE wrestler who was known as “Big Dan” Rodman, he was accused of assault in three incidents in Florida from 2010 to 2013. In one case Rodimer pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor battery charge for a 2010 confrontation at a Waffle House and completed a six-week anger management course in exchange for the charge being dropped.

Records also show that in 2006 a neighbor called police to the wrestler’s apartment in Dunedin. Rodimer and his girlfriend were arguing loudly over another man having called the girlfriend. Both Rodimer and his girlfriend told police the argument escalated and got loud but nothing physical occurred.
