A toxicology test is underway to determine the cause of death for Wicked Tuna‘s Nicholas Fudge, RadarOnline.com can exclusively report.

According to the Concord, New Hampshire medical examiner, an immediate cause of death was unknown and is “pending studies.”

Kim Kellens — a spokesperson for the medical examiner — explained to Radar that the “doctor didn’t see anything super obvious, and is waiting to get some tests back before she determines the cause of death.”

As Radar previously reported, Fudge has had some legal troubles associated with driving while under the influence and possession of prescription drugs.

Only four months prior to his tragic death, Fudge was arrested for DUI, disobeying an officer, resisting arrest, and having an open container.

The troubled reality star was found guilty on two of the charges and he was sentenced to one year probation and ordered to complete an “Impaired Driver Care Management” program.

He was 28 years old.
