WWE Star Jack Swagger

ARRESTED

for DUI & Pot

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."

PS DUI doesn't automatically mean alcohol. Even driving while having Tylenol is considered DUI.

I don't condone DUI but for pete's sake, it's pot..not like he was drunk behind the wheel. We've seen people do way worse. Not to mention, those who see pot behind the wheel as a travesty clearly have never actually taken pot. Still a fan of Swagger.

He needs to lose his push and be put given zero tolerance in the future. DUI/DWI is something that should never be given any tolerance, and I really wouldn't have a problem if Vince decided to fire his ass and bring up either Bray Wyatt or Chris Hero from NXT to take his place in this angle.

Firstly, I do not advocate the use of Cannabis.
However, for theraputic purposes it effectively
replaces many more powerful, addictive, and often
lethal "prescribe medications" which many "doctors"
and massive pharmaceutical corporations have shamelessly MARKTED to our citizens.
Secondly, Mr. Swagger is one of the most talented
individuals in his industry, with an extremely-impressive amateur background.
Unquestionably, the executives with the WWE will closely examine the totality of the situation.
