Jimmy Uso arrested on DUI charges

Jul 6, 2021 - by Marc Middleton

WWE SmackDown Superstar Jimmy Uso has been arrested for DUI again.

Uso was pulled over on Monday at around 10:35pm ET in Pensacola, Florida after police say he ran a red light, clocked going 50 mph in a 35 mph zone, according to police records and TMZ.

Police records show that during subsequent questioning, officers smelled alcohol on Uso and then asked him to exit his Dodge Charger. Police noticed Uso swaying, and he admitted he had consumed “multiple” beers before getting behind the wheel.

Uso then failed sobriety tests and was arrested. Police say Uso’s BAC breath tests came back at .202 and .205, well above the legal limit of .08 in the state of Florida.

Uso was booked on a misdemeanor DUI charge, and is currently still incarcerated as of this writing with a $500 bond. It’s possible that he is being held for 24 hours due to the nature of the charge, and jail records indicate that he is being held in the “tank.” He also received citations for speeding and running a red light.

This is Jimmy’s second DUI charge in the last two years as he was also booked for similar charges in July 2019, also in Pensacola. A jury later found him not guilty in that case, despite police video that showed him swerving and stumbling during the arrest. Uso was also arrested earlier in 2019 after allegedly getting into a drunken dispute with police in Detroit.

Uso is currently featured on SmackDown in the main storyline with WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns. There is no word yet on how this will impact his status with the company.

    Future endeavored? Or does Vince’s love of Samoan’s keep this guy around?

    Let him go before he kills someone or himself.

    Release him already.

  4. James says:

    He must have a drinking problem that needed to be addressed.

  5. Gerry says:

    He’s now in the USO penitentiary!!

    Vince is never going to release someone related to Reigns. Can’t do anything that would endanger his relationship with the Rock – he wants to make sure the Rock returns once in a while. So far, Uso has been lucky that he has been stopped before causing an accident. The guy obviously has a problem with drinking too much and then getting in his car.

    If he wants to drink himself into oblivion every night – good for him. The moment he gets in a car after drinking that changes everything. Hope they throw the book at him this time

    I’m a “one strike” kinda guy when it comes to DUI. IDGAF what YOU do to YOURSELF, thats whatever. But once you put other lives at risk then its time you lose your ability to drive a car. He shouldn’t have a DL anymore clearly. Granted, that doesn’t always stop people, but it may be the shot in the arm to prevent it again.

    @Brian

    You don’t think Rock’s allowed to come back whenever he wants. Besides he’s too busy making Fast & Furious 93 and raising his kids to pay attention to his cousins.

    That said, WWE needs to release Jimmy already. This is ridiculous.

  9. aag44 says:

    He really needs to get his act together now and seek the necessary help. Maybe in the past they didn’t fire him because of the value of the Usos as a combined act, but over the past few months, Jey has shown that he can be in storylines without his brother. Not the smartest timing, to say the least…

  10. Drew says:

    I honestly don’t think WWE even cares about this stuff. Several drunk Superstars have been arrested over the years and nothing ever seems to happen to them.

  11. Stonz says:

    Yeah if it was some kind of drug charge, then WWE would take it more seriously. He didn’t violate their WP, so all they will probably do is bitch at him for doing it again. They won’t release him.

  12. Joseph says:

    Not sure if he needs to be fired but he does need to get his drinking under control.
