No criminal charges for The Ultimate Warrior

TMZ.com passed this along:
Ultimate Warrior won’t face criminal charges after allegedly bilking a memorabilia dealer out of valuable wrestling merch … including ring-worn wrestling trunks — this according to law enforcement.
TMZ broke the story … a sports memorabilia dealer named Christopher Elias filed a police report last week, claiming he paid Warrior $28,000 for the giant merchandise collection … but Warrior never anted up.
Now, a rep for the Sante Fe Sheriff Department tells TMZ, they investigated the matter and can’t determine whether any fraud took place.
As a result, police have deemed the merch dispute to be a civil matter — and the courts can handle it from here out.
A rep for Warrior tells us, “The facts will speak for themselves once presented.”
