WWE star Jimmy Uso arrested for DUI again

By Jason Powell, ProWrestling.net Editor (@prowrestlingnet)

WWE wrestler Jimmy Uso (Jonathan Fatu) was arrested for DUI on Monday in Pensacola, Florida. TMZ.com reports that Uso was pulled over on Monday night after running a red light and driving 50 MPH in a 35 MPH zone. Police officers smelled alcohol and Uso admitted to consuming multiple beers before failing a field sobriety test. Uso was eventually given BAC breath tests that registered at .202 and .205. Florida’s legal limit is .08. Read the full story at TMZ.com.

Powell’s POV: Uso was arrested for DUI in Florida back in July 2019, but a jury found him not guilty. As of the latest update, Uso was still in a Pensacola jail. I reached out to WWE for comment and will pass along any statement the company should choose to offer on the matter.

  1. I sort of understand how people with not a lot going on in their life turn to an excess of alcohol, but when life is going good why do people want to drink excessively? Unless he is using as a painkiller, I just don’t see the benefit.

    • “… why do people want to drink excessively?” – alcoholism is a disease. Addictive behavior is not simply a matter of choice.

      • Exactly. I hope he gets some real help this time. Seems like he’s a decent guy who just can’t get past this one demon. Hopefully he figures out a plan that keeps him from driving once he’s had more than one drink, or he finally goes after the drinking habit itself.

        Either way, I’m still holding out for that Uso’s vs G.O.D. feud happening one day.

      • True, but that first ever drink is a choice. And many other drinks after the first one. You don’t become an alcoholic overnight.

  2. I don’t care what his situation is, literally the least people expect out of another person is to not drive drunk. This dude clearly has a problem.
