WWE star Jimmy Uso charged with drunk driving

In the early morning hours of a recent Thursday, an off-duty officer traveling along Interstate 10 noticed a vehicle speeding at more than 100 mph while weaving in and out of his lane. The Florida officer suspected a case of drunk driving and reported it to the county's sheriff's office. Deputies were informed that the driver pulled into a parking lot, but left before deputies arrived.

Reportedly, the driver was later pulled over after he turned onto another highway and nearly missed colliding with another vehicle as he allegedly traveled at 86 mph in a 45 mph zone. According to the arrest report, the driver was identified as Jonathan "Jimmy Uso" Fatu, a WWE performer. The deputy says the wrestler's eyes appeared watery and bloodshot, and his pupils were dilated. Further notes indicate that his speech was slurred and he struggled to present his vehicle information and license.

Further allegations state that Fatu only stepped out of the vehicle after several orders to do so and then struggled to remain steady on his feet. He was arrested and later released after he posted bond. He now faces charges of unlawful speeding and DUI, and his next court appearance is scheduled in August. Reportedly, this is not Uso's first DUI arrest.

In and of themselves, drunk driving charges are simply based on allegations, and they could still be dropped or reduced. Retaining the services of an experienced Florida criminal defense attorney is the sensible thing to do. Legal counsel can scrutinize the charges and the evidence, along with the procedures used during the traffic stop and the arrest. Any irregularities can be addressed in court while the attorney works to obtain the best possible outcome for the client.
