WWE diva Kaitlyn was arrested for an old speeding ticket in Michigan Tuesday night.

TMZ had the news:

Wrestling diva Kaitlyn was arrested earlier today at a WWE event in Michigan ... and it wasn't part of the script .... TMZ has learned.

It all went down at the Van Andel Arena ... sources tell us the 26 year old was taken into custody by the Kent County Sheriff stemming from an old speeding ticket.

Were told shortly after she arrived at the arena police showed up with a warrant ... she was hauled to a nearby police station where she was booked and took a pretty impressive mugshot.

A short time later Kaitlyn -- real name Celeste Bonin -- was released on a $315 bond.

This doesn't sound like a big deal, but anything that's not scripted in the WWE world is worth noting.

If this were someone like John Cena or CM Punk, people would certainly be paying attention, but the WWE's Divas division doesn't receive much attention inside or outside of the ring.

Kaitlyn has become better known as of late because of her feud with Eve for the Divas Championship. She took part in a triple-threat match at Hell in a Cell with Eve and Layla, with Eve eventually retaining the title over her competitors.

Recently, she's been feuding with Aksana. Aksana attacked Kaitlyn at Survivor Series before her championship match with Eve, which could have prevented her from challenging for the title.

Being arrested after defeating Aksana on the most recent Monday Night Raw kills her momentum. It's hard to predict how the organization will handle the situation, but no one likes bad publicity of any form.
