Wrestler Arrested for Suspicion of DUI

5/1/2008 1:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Former WWE Intercontinental Champion, Santino Marella, was arrested at 2:57 AM EST in Tampa, Florida on suspicion of DUI.

Marella, real name Anthony Carelli, was pulled over after cops witnessed his car drifting back and forth -- he had "bloodshot, watery and glassy eyes."

Carelli failed two field sobriety tests -- including one in which he couldn't hold his balance. He told officers he started drinking at midnight, and had three Miller Lights and one Kamikaze. The ol', "I had a couple of beers."

As first reported by Wrestling News World, when Mr. Wrestler was hauled to the Hillsborough County jail, his BAC was under the .08 legal limit -- .061 and .062. But, he took the test nearly two hours after being arrested so he can still be prosecuted.

He was released on $500 bail around an hour ago.

Ooooo Noooo!    

Looks like Hillsborough County put the slap-down on old Santino. He can hold his title belt but I guess he can't hold a couple belts of whiskey. Light weight -- no, make that feather weight. He drinks like Paris Hilton: two drinks and he's looped.

I guess hangin with Carlito really isn't cool, and getting beat by a girl, didn't help, did it? I bet he was teased for getting his ass handed to him by Maria and the rest of the Divas. LOL.......

I think it's disgusting how a "news" source such as TMZ can be so uncaring when it comes to child rape and molestation cases. How do you justify showing a picture of a 14 year old victim? Don't you think this is already hard enough on him? I fear that you will all be burning in hell before you realize you should have had a conscience.

Santino, what was you thinkin', bro? You work for one of the greatest companies in the world and you go and do this...guess you won't be WWE IC champ or Tag Champ for quite some time now.
