TMZ is reporting that Jack Swagger was arrested Tuesday night in Mississippi for allegedly driving under the influence with marijuana in his vehicle.
Swagger was leaving this week’s Smackdown taping from the Mississippi Coast Coliseum in Biloxi when he was stopped by police for speeding. The officer determined Swagger was driving under the influence and searched his vehicle. Marijuana was found and he was arrested by local sheriff’s deputies but later released on his own recognizance.
He’s been charged with three misdemeanors – driving under the influence, possession of marijuana and speeding.
TMZ obtained the following statement from WWE:
“Mr. Swagger is responsible for his own personal actions.”
The gossip publication also released his mugshot:
Richard Reacts: This is probably one of the most irresponsible arrests in WWE history. He’s been off television for 6 months and not only does he have Vince McMahon’s confidence but a title match at Wrestlemania. Sources have always claimed Swagger had a tendency to develop an attitude/ego problem but this takes the cake. Wow.
