TMZ: Ex-WWE Star Investigated for DUI After Bloody Crash



From TMZ.com:

Former WWE superstar Shane Helms — aka “The Hurricane” — is at the center of a drunk driving investigation after a BRUTAL motorcycle crash on Thursday that left him and his girlfriend broken and battered.

According to the police report obtained by TMZ … a witness told cops Helms was driving home from a restaurant in Smithfield, North Carolina around 9:15 PM — with his GF on the bike — when he blew through a stop sign, lost control and “drove straight through the metal chain link fence.”

Cops say one of the witnesses told officers he was hanging out with Helms at a local restaurant minutes before the crash and said he “was sure” Helms had been drinking there.

Helms and his GF were transported to a local hospital where they were treated for multiple broken bones and other injuries.

Law enforcement sources tell us officers took a blood sample from Helms at the hospital to check his blood alcohol level at the time of the crash … but it could take several months to get the results back.

So far, we’re told an investigation is underway … but no charges have been filed against Helms.

    Given some of his ridiculous online rants, it isn’t surprising that he has an alcohol problem.

  5. Tania says:

    Just because he goes on rants online and is a friend of the Hardys doesn’t mean he has a problem. He is a guy that got hurt along with his gf in a wreck don’t judge them

    This is all TNA’s fault! If they would of been responsible then Matt and Jeff would of been there!

    Then the 4 of them would of stoned in a Burger King.

    An eye witness saw him leave drunk… and didn’t say anything?

    Scum of the Earth, that eyewitness is. Just wanted to be able to “report” a story, and decided letting a drunk driver in the world was a good idea.
