Jimmy Uso arrested on charges of disorderly conduct & obstruction

Jimmy Uso was reportedly arrested this week in Detroit after an altercation with the police, as first reported by TMZ Sports.

“The 33-year-old -- real name Jonathan Solofa Fatu -- and his wife, fellow WWE superstar Naomi, were pulled over near downtown Detroit ... after cops say Naomi was driving the wrong direction on a one-way street.

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.”

The report goes on to say that Uso calmed down and was eventually handcuffed and taken to jail before posting bond. He was charged with disorderly conduct and obstruction.

WWE has not yet released a statement on the arrest.

Jimmy Uso and his brother Jey were scheduled to challenge for the SmackDown tag team championship against Shane McMahon and The Miz this Sun., Feb. 17, 2019, at the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view in Houston, Texas.

We will update you further with any statement from WWE regarding the arrest or Sunday’s match.
