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."

Oh wow! He just won a huge match on Sunday, got a new gimmick, and was headed towards a new career.

I guess he flushed that all down the toilet...

OK for anyone saying it says he's 8' or more....the inches are on his left, or ur right...anyway just to be clear a foot is 12 inches so where it says 72 that is 6 feet so to the top of his head is about 78 or 79 inches so he is 7 feet 6 inches tall

With medicinal and recreational marijuana legalization spreading throughout the country, one question begs answering: how much pot is too much when it comes to getting behind the wheel?
