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."

WWE have a long history with wrestlers abusing drugs. There should have been under cover DEA & IRS agents investigating whats really going on in WWE. The new no tolerance policy is a joke. CEO Mr. Vince Kennth McMahon is very selective about suspending and terminating someone from their job. Good ole boy Jack Swagger will contine to abuse drugs and remain on WWE payroll.

his wwe match at wrestlemania should go to orton, sheamus got fined, etc, a real american, so a real american smokes hash,and is a racist, wwe should step in as its not a good adver for wwe to sit and do nothing, it reflects on them.. his title championship should be taken away to show wwe fans that the company does not support swagger or will not tolerate drugs in their wrestlers.

Those stupid racists Colter and Swagger have WWE walking on thin ice. If Stephanie McMahon doesn't change this retarded storyline and FAST, someone is gonna get hurt, or worse. The Hispanic audience in Dallas, Texas where they started all this has elevated this to a personal tryst between the immigrants and WWE, this WILL get worse before it gets ANY better, FYI, Del Rio, Ricardo Rodriguez, Epico, Primo, Rosa Mendez, Sheamus, Drew McIntyre, Mason Ryan, Wade Barrett, and a number other superstars (Canadians included) are immigrants. So Colter and Swagger can take their holier-than-thou bull**** and shove it up their asses.

Yeah, so much for his and Zeb Coulter's, "We The People", movement. Funniest thing about it would be if being that far south if he were nailed with some Illegal Mexican weed!

WWE fighter, Jack Swagger, was arrested for driving under the influence and having marijuana in his car. …and you have to see this guy’s mug shot! If he didn’t think he looked high and drunk, he should take a sober look at this picture! In Virginia, whether or not he would be facing mandatory jail time would be dependent on his level of intoxication and how many times he has previously been convicted of these offenses.
