WWE wrestler Naomi (Trinity Fatu) responded to a fan on social media and declared that she was not ticketed or drinking on the night that her husband Jimmy Uso (Jonathan Fatu) was charged disorderly conduct and obstruction following a traffic stop in Detroit. “I was NOT ticketed, I was NOT drinking, leaving the lot I was unaware that it exits to a 1 way street (it was dark snow no signs no traffic I was pulled immediately made a mistake and I own it),” Naomi wrote on her Twitter page.
Powell’s POV: According to a February 14 TMZ.com report, Uso was arrested (no date was listed) when he exited the vehicle, removed his jacket and shirt, and “squared up” while ignoring police commands. The story stated that an officer pulled out his taser, and Uso settled down before being arrested and later released on bond. TMZ cited a source who said the car “reeked of booze.” WWE issued the following statement once word of the arrest was reported: “Jonathan Fatu is responsible for his own personal actions.” The Usos went on to win the Smackdown Tag Titles at Elimination Chamber just three days after the arrest was reported.
I was NOT ticketed, I was NOT drinking, leaving the lot I was unaware that it exits to a 1 way street (it was dark snow no signs no traffic I was pulled immediately made a mistake and I own it) as for my husband he’s more of a man you’ll ever be & I’ll leave it at that #blocked https://t.co/ymRRanIQeH
