Ex-WWE Star Investigated for DUI After Bloody Crash

Former WWE superstar Shane Helms -- aka "The Hurricane" -- is at the center of a drunk driving investigation after a BRUTAL motorcycle crash on Thursday that left him and his girlfriend broken and battered.

According to the police report obtained by TMZ ... a witness told cops Helms was driving home from a restaurant in Smithfield, North Carolina around 9:15 PM -- with his GF on the bike -- when he blew through a stop sign, lost control and "drove straight through the metal chain link fence."

Cops say one of the witnesses told officers he was hanging out with Helms at a local restaurant minutes before the crash and said he "was sure" Helms had been drinking there.

Helms and his GF were transported to a local hospital where they were treated for multiple broken bones and other injuries.

Law enforcement sources tell us officers took a blood sample from Helms at the hospital to check his blood alcohol level at the time of the crash ... but it could take several months to get the results back.

So far, we're told an investigation is underway ... but no charges have been filed against Helms.

Takes months to get a blood toxicology back for alcohol but only a matter of hours for the govt to get a dna test back for OBL!

Now if Maury could get the same response time on DNA as OBL what a show...

Im not a believer in the official OBL story.

Idiot. Probably didn't even learn his lesson. Next time, in addition to your girlfriend make sure you have a baby and a kitten on your bike too.

If this is true, Shame Helms is officially the biggest **** in the world for not only putting his life at risk but also the life of his girlfriend and the lives of every other person on the road.

He is not fat, he has over 150 stitches in his face and it's swollen BADLY. The fence he ran through wasn't repaired from an accident that happened a couple weeks ago and that's why the injuries are so jagged and bad. His GF broke her neck and some other bones. People make mistakes everyday, so don't throw rocks if you live in a glass house.

Drunk driving isn't a mistake. If he was drunk I hope they throw his dumb ass in jail and throw away the key. What a dumba$$!!

First off, to those who say Shane Helms is not fat but rather his face is swollen, think again. If his face was swollen to due his wreck then his eyes would be swollen shut, he's just a fat a**. Second, to those naysayers that claim OBL is not dead you are wrong, I know cause I'm OBL and I'm cold and wet...gurgle, gurgle, gurgle.

Why in the world would any intelligent person try to say that it would take several months to get the results of a blood test back?

I would think it could be done in hours if not minutes.
