Jimmy Uso Arrested for DUI. WWE Future in Doubt?

Written by Mike Rickard II

WWE Superstar Jimmy Uso (aka Jonathan Fatu) has been arrested for DUI (driving under the influence), his second such arrest in just two years. In an exclusive, the intrepid sleuths at TMZ Sports are reporting:

According to police docs, Uso — real name Jonathan Fatu — was pulled over at around 10:35 PM on Monday in Pensacola after cops say he ran a red light after being clocked going 50 MPH in a 35 MPH zone.

In the docs, officers say during subsequent questioning … they smelled booze on the 35-year-old, so they asked him to exit his Dodge Charger.

Cops say when Uso got out of his vehicle, he was noticeably swaying … and claim that Uso had told them he had consumed “multiple” beers before getting behind the wheel.

Officers say Uso went on to bomb field sobriety tests … so they arrested him.

In the docs, cops claim Uso’s BAC breath tests came back at .202 and .205 — well above Florida’s legal limit of .08.

Fatu took his 2019 case to a jury trial and he was found not guilty.

Naturally, Jimmy getting his act together is his most important priority, but his WWE career could be on the rocks (no pun intended). WrestleVotes recently tweeted:

Fatu returned from a lengthy injury several weeks back and was involved in a top program on the WWE’s SmackDown program alongside real-life cousin Roman Reigns. It’s likely Fatu will be absent from WWE TV for some time until his case is adjudicated. It’s also possible the WWE will release him unless he is found not guilty.
