Jack Swagger, Pro Wrestler, Could Benefit from a 24 Hour Drug Course

by Mike Miller June 11, 2013

For those of you who think professional wrestling is a total farce, just try going through the charades they go through week-in and week-out. While the matches are choreographed by some of America’s finest choreographers, make no mistake, there is extreme physical impact on pro wrestlers’ bodies.

There is no denying there are many addicted to prescription medication, alcohol and other drugs. For such a wild bunch they manage to stay relatively clean with respect to getting caught.

Wrestler Jack Swagger, who lost his shot at the world heavyweight championship this week to Alberto Del Rio, is set for trial in Gulfport for his arrest back in February for driving under the influence of marijuana after a taping of the TV show "WWE SmackDown."

The 30-year-old Swagger’s real name is Donald Jacob Hager. Not too intimidating, right?

Swagger lost a match for the world heavyweight title Sunday at WrestleMania 29, at which Del Rio retained the title at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.

The night of Swagger's arrest, he had been at the Coast Coliseum in Biloxi for a "SmackDown" taping. Police first caught him speeding, clocking his 2013 Ford Taurus at 55 mph in a 45-mph zone.

Police said they found a small amount of marijuana in the car and suspected he was driving under the influence of pot.

Swagger was arrested on misdemeanor charges of DUI, speeding and possession of marijuana

This was his first offense. I hope he takes a solid level 3 24 hour online drug class and decides to keep his body clean of chemical substances.
