WWE star Jimmy Uso ‘pulled over by police for drink-driving and speeding’

WWE star Jimmy Uso has been arrested a second time for drink driving after police stopped him for speeding.

The wrestler had allegedly drunk multiple beers before taking his Dodge Charger for a drive on Monday night.

According to TMZ, Uso – whose real name is Jonathan Fatu – ignored a red light and sped through a 35mph zone at 50mph when on the road in Florida.

Clocking his alleged offences, officers pulled him over at around 10.35pm and asked him to step out of his vehicle.

Police documents seen by TMZ state the wrestler smelt of booze as he swayed his way out of the car.

Fatu told the officers that he had earlier consumed "multiple" beers, police said in their report.

The athlete failed an alcohol test considerably with it returning results of .202 and .205, compared to the state of Florida's legal limit of .08, The Sun reports.

Following his arrest, Fatu spent the rest of the night in a cell on a misdemeanour driving under the influence charge, according to TMZ which reported he was locked up with a $500 bond.
