His court date means he could miss a Smackdown taping...
- More details have emerged in Jack Swagger's arrest on Tuesday night for DUI, marijuana possession and speeding. The AP reports that Swagger was arrested just before midnight after being pulled over for driving ten miles over the speed limit. Swagger's car was towed and after he was booked, he was released from custody to a friend that picked him up at the police station.
Swagger faces fines of $188 for speeding, $437 for the marijuana possesion and $1,300 for his first DUI offense. Because of the DUI his appearance in court is mandatory and he could also lose his driver's license for ninety days. Swagger also could get two days in jail but could avoid that through stipulations such as counseling.
As we previously reported, Swagger's court date is set for March 12th in Gulfport, Mississippi. That is a Tuesday and WWE has a Smackdown taping set for Fort Wayne, Indiana that night. A bit of research shows that it would be difficult via commercial flight to make that trip, so he could miss the taping that night.
