WWE: Jimmy Uso arrested for driving drunk in Tampa Bay, Florida

via <a href=""></a>

WWE superstar (if you can call him that) Jimmy Uso, real name Jonathan Fatu, was arrested for driving drunk in Tampa Bay, Florida, at 3 a.m. this morning (Sept. 29). has the story:

Uso was arrested just after 3 a.m. Thursday at Howard Avenue and Platt Street after a police officer said Uso was driving the wrong way on Howard in a silver Mustang, according to an arrest affidavit.

The 26-year-old World Wrestling Entertainment performer, 6 feet 2 and 240 pounds, had a blood alcohol reading of 0.180 - well above the 0.08 limit at which point the state presumes impairment.

As of press time, Uso was still in jail pending $500 bail. There isn't much to add here, really. Uso, one half of a twin tag team with his brother Jey, who are sons of former star Rikishi, has been floundering as a performer as of late. The tag team has been toiling away with occasional appearances on Smackdown and, as of late, NXT.

WWE has yet to comment on the situation.
