TMZ reported that Jimmy was pulled over by police due to speeding. The officer got behind Uso and noticed that he was driving erratically, swerving “left and right.” Jimmy reportedly “reeked of alcohol” when he was pulled over and then refused when the officer tried to proceed with DUI tests. Jimmy was then arrested for the DUI charge, and also hit with a speeding citation.
Ironically, on RAW Reunion this past Monday, John Cena cut a promo during a segment that alluded to the past legal issues of the USO brother. “Respect for calling me out, but ain’t no way I’m getting bested,” Cena rapped. “Ya’ll look just like your mugshots! How was it getting arrested?”
John Cena was making reference to Jimmy being arrested back in February following a drunken altercation with police officers in Detroit. He was charged with obstruction and disorderly conduct in that incident.
The WWE is set to have their “Smackdown” brand air on Fox Sports later this year and are trying to keep talent from signing with new competitor AEW. So, it will be interesting to see how WWE handles this situation.
