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!
