WWE Star Jimmy Uso Hit With Second DUI In Two Years

A WWE superstar is in hot water today, and it’s not the first time.

Jimmy Uso, part of Uso’s tag team and a faction on WWE’s Friday show Smackdown with champion Roman Reigns, was arrested for DUI after driving in Florida with a BAC of .205, according to TMZ Sports.

Jonathan Fatu (Uso’s real name) was pulled over at around 10:35 PM on Monday in Pensacola.

Police say that Fatu ran a red light after being clocked going 50 MPH in a 35 MPH zone. They smelled alcohol on the 35-year-old and asked him to exit the Dodge Charger that he was driving.

The wrestler was “noticeably swaying” when he got out of the car, and he admitted that he had “multiple” beers before getting behind the wheel.

He was arrested after he failed field sobriety tests. His BAC breath tests came back at .202 and .205, which is way above Florida’s legal limit of .08.

Fatu was booked on a misdemeanor DUI charge. It’s not known what the WWE will do in response to the arrest, as it’s the second time Fatu has racked up a DUI, the first coming in July of 2019.
