EXCLUSIVE

Jack Swagger mug shot
WWE star Jack Swagger was arrested last night in Mississippi, TMZ has learned -- after allegedly driving under the influence ... with pot in his car.

Sources close to the situation tell TMZ, Swagger -- real name Jacob Hager -- was leaving a "Smackdown" taping at Mississippi Coast Coliseum in Biloxi when he was pulled over for speeding.

According to law enforcement, the officer who pulled him over determined Swagger was driving under the influence -- and a search revealed Swagger was in possession of marijuana.

We're told Swagger -- a former WWE World Heavyweight champ -- was taken in by local police officers ... and later released on his own recognizance.

He has been charged with DUI (not alcohol), marijuana possession, and speeding -- all misdemeanors.

We reached out to WWE, who tells TMZ, "Mr. Swagger is responsible for his own personal actions."

It is a good thing Linda McMahon went to congress and said" that the WWE is NOT A SPORT AND NEVER HAS BEEN A SPORT IT IS STRICTLY ENTERTAINMENT" Now that the WWE Does not have to test for drug use they could care less if one of their entertainers is a drug user as long as they Perform and then the WWE gets rid of them and finds a New Batch of Drug Users to make Money.
