WWE Star Jack Swagger Arrested For DUI, Drug Possession

jack swaggerWWE westling star Jack Swagger was arrested for DUI and drug possession on February 19, 2013 in Gulfport, Mississippi. Swagger, whose real name is Donald Jacob “Jake” Hager Jr., was pulled over just around midnight in Gulfport for speeding when the officer found a small amount of marijuana in his possession. While questioning Swagger, the officer suspected that the wrestler might be under the influence of alcohol, although, it is still unclear what Swagger’s blood alcohol content (BAC) level was. According to Lt. Craig Peterson, Swagger was stopped on the northbound side of Lorraine Rd six miles south of I-10. Jack Swagger had apparently just finished taping an episode of WWE Smackdown in Biloxi at the Mississippi Coast Coliseum. Lt. Peterson also said that Swagger’s vehicle was towed and that the WWE star was released to a friend after being released at the police station.

Swagger is set to appear in court on March 12 for misdemeanor charges. Even though the charges are misdemeanors, city prosecutor Kirk Clark says, “We have never recommended mere fines and fees only on a DUI. We always recommend the maximum sentence of two days in jail for first offenders. That time can be suspended but only on completion of certain court-ordered conditions like probation, classes, AA meetings, etc.“. If convicted, Swagger could have to pay $188 for driving 10 mph over the speed limit, $1,300 for a first time DUI and $437 for possession of a small amount of marijuana. Swagger could also have to complete a Victim Impact Panel should he be convicted. An official spokesman for the WWE said that “Mr. Swagger is responsible for his own personal actions“. Before becoming a professional wrestler, 260 pound, 6 foot 7 Jack Swagger played football and wrestled for the University of Oklahoma.
