TMZ Sports is reporting that Jimmy Uso was arrested following a drunken incident with Detroit police.
According to the story, Jimmy and his wife, WWE Superstar Naomi, were pulled over for driving the wrong way down a one-way street. The cops said the car “reeked of booze,” so they ordered Naomi out of the car, and that’s allegedly when things got crazy.
According to our police sources, cops say their 2018 Dodge Journey reeked of booze … so they ordered Naomi out of the car.
We’re told while Naomi talked to cops, Jimmy got out of the car — despite commands from police — and took off his shirt and jacket and squared up like he wanted to fight. We’re told the officer took out his taser cause he was scared for his safety.
Jimmy ultimately settled down and complied with their commands … was handcuffed, and arrested for disorderly conduct and obstruction. He was taken to jail … and later posted bond.
Jimmy’s brother Jey was arrested a little over a year ago for driving while intoxicated following a Smackdown taping in Texas.
The Usos are scheduled to wrestle for the Smackdown Tag Team Championship against Shane McMahon and The Miz at Sunday’s Elimination Chamber pay-per-view in Houston. No word yet on how this incident will affect that match or the show, but we’ll keep you updated with any pertinent news or announcements.
Update: WWE’s statement on the arrest is below, in full.
“Jonathan Fatu is responsible for his own personal actions.”
