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."

I do think that Jack Swagger should get rid of that Colter guy and be a heavyweight champion again...WWE writers should pay attention to the WWE Universe and figure this out

WWE have a long history of wrestlers abusing drugs. The new so-called drug policy at WWE is a joke. CEO Mr. Vince Kennth McMahon is very selected on whom he will suspend or will be fired. Jack Swagger is a good ole boy, Vince McMahon is all about profits. Some undercover DEA & IRS officers should really check whats really going on in WWE.
