WWE superstar Jack Swagger was on Tuesday night arrested in Mississippi for allegedly driving under the influence, while having weed in his car.
According to law enforcement sources, Swagger was leaving a Smackdown taping at Mississippi Coast Coliseum in Biloxi, when a cop pulled him over for overspeeding. Thereafter, the cop discovered he was under the influence of something other than alcohol and then conducted a search – which ended with the discovery of marijuana in his car.
Swagger, real name Jacob Hager, was then arrested and charged with DUI, weed possession and overspeeding misdemeanors. He has since been released on self recognizance.
Jack Swagger has just returned to the WWE after months of absence, and he won this year’s Elimination Chamber match that made him the No 1 contender for the World Heavyweight championship at Wrestlemania, WWE’s biggest event. As for whether the latest arrest will hurt his career, we don’t think so. This is because the WWE has stated concerning the arrest that Jack is ‘responsible for his own personal actions.’
