Mississippi police had the ultimate smackdown on WWE champ Jack Swagger when they arrested him last night for DUI (driving under the influence) and possession of marijuana.
World Wrestling Entertainment star Jack Swagger, real name Jacob Hager, had just finished taping a TV episode of “SmackDown” when he was pulled over by Biloxi Mississippi police for speeding. Law enforcement claimed they could tell Swagger was DUI on marijuana (not an alcohol related DUI) giving them probable cause to search Swagger’s 2013 Ford Taurus. Police found marijuana in Swagger’s budget friendly ride which led to Swagger’s arrest.
“The All American American” wrestler was charged with misdemeanor counts of speeding, DUI, and possession of marijuana. Swagger was later released on his own recognizance.
The WWE’s reaction to Swaggers legal charges seemed minimal as they released the statement, “Mr. Swagger is responsible for his own personal actions.”
However, Jack isn’t completely off the hook with the WWE, according to their Wellness Policy “Any WWE Talent, who is arrested, convicted or who admits to a violation of law relating to use, possession, purchase, sale or distribution of drugs will be in material breach of his/her contract with WWE and subject to immediate dismissal.”
With a successful growing career on the line, Swagger better hire a DUI defense attorney that can put a prosecutor in a good pile drive to get his case dismissed!

Dang, what a Valentines Day for Rapper 2 Chainz, pulled over for speeding, popped for possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia, then taken to the police station booked and later forced to take celebrity photos with two local officers. It’s not like 2 Chainz had an option to say no to taking the pics, he didn’t want to piss off the officers and add obstruction of justice to his list of charges. Besides it is in 2 Chainz best interest to keep his fans happy, just look at these pleased police smiles, they love 2 Chainz!
Valentines evening around 9 PM, 2 Chainz was driving 79 miles an hour on Route 50 heading to his concert appearance at the University of Maryland. A state trooper pulled him over for speeding. Upon questioning the Grammy nominated rapper and 6 other passengers, the state patrol officer smelled an odor of burnt marijuana, providing a reason for the officer to search 2 Chainz’s white van.
Officers found trace amounts of marijuana and a grinder (a device to smash cannabis) on 2 Chainz which led to his arrest. The 6 other passengers were allowed to leave. 2 Chainz was taken to Maryland Police Station and charged with possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. Upon his release that night, 2 Chainz abided the cops request and took the fan photo. The rapper left the police station furious and began tweeting about the situation, “We [went] to jail for a grinder??? REALLY???…da f-k u know? Haha wut a valentines day!!!…Locked me up and then Wanted pictures smh (shaking my head).
If found guilty of possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia, 2 Chainz will have to pay some pocket change of $1000.00 and will spend up to a year in the pokey.
