This past weekend, Sean Waltman was arrested at the LAX airport and charged with five counts of narcotics possession with intent to sell. Waltman was quick to take to social media and state that he was not using drugs again, and that he would explain his side of the story shortly.
Waltman’s first real comment on the matter was on Twitter, saying that the items taken by the police would be tested, and he would also be taking a hair follicle test that will prove he’s clean.
On Wednesday, he elaborated on his claims both to TMZ and on his AfterBuzz TV show, X-Pac 1-2-360. He explained to TMZ that what the police identified and logged as methamphetamine pills were actually yeast cleanse capsules.
The transcript, courtesy of Cageside Seats:
What they say was methamphetamine, was actually … I’ve had a yeast infection, believe it or not, for the better part of a year. I had some candida cleanse capsules, that I got from Vitamin World, and apparently the meth fairy came and turned them into crystal meth. That’s the story.
With my past, I can totally understand anybody rolling their eyes at my story. Once the lab work comes back, this should be all cleared up. But in the meantime … oh what a mess.
That was the only way they were going to get anybody to take me — otherwise they were going to have to let me go. And this one guy was not going to have that, it wasn’t going to happen. Now, whether or not they actually think that there was a meth-like substance in there, or they were trying to stick it to me — who knows?
On his own show, Waltman went more in-depth about the whole situation, saying that when he was stopped by agents, he immediately produced his medical marijuana card, but was informed there was a zero tolerance policy on drugs. He also said that even though his ring gear was part of the items that the police confiscated, he’s still planning on making it to the Cow Palace in San Francisco this weekend to be part of APW’s big show.
