Jimmy Uso Arrested For DUI

TAMPA — Professional wrestler Jimmy Uso went from body slams in the ring to being thrown in the slammer Thursday when he was accused of drunken driving.

Uso, whose real name is Jonathan Fatu, was arrested just after 3 a.m. Thursday at Howard Avenue and Platt Street after a police officer said Uso was driving the wrong way on Howard in a silver Mustang, according to an arrest affidavit.

The 26-year-old World Wrestling Entertainment performer, 6 feet 2 and 240 pounds, had a blood alcohol reading of 0.180 — well above the 0.08 limit at which point the state presumes impairment.

Uso, who lives in South Tampa, remained in jail Thursday in lieu of $500 bail. He wrestles as part of a tag team with his twin brother, Jey, while wearing Samoan tribal beads. He has worked in the WWE since May 2010.
