WWE: Arrested star wrestles just hours after release from custody

Last night, Ted DiBiase, Jr. wrestled in two matches mere hours after being released from police custody due to a DUI arrest. DiBiase, Jr.’s blood alcohol level was well-above the legal limit, and he was taken into custody at 4:30 a.m. DiBiase, Jr. was released from jail about twelve hours later at 4:53 p.m. on $500 bail. DiBiase, Jr. and Jake Hager wrestled in a 23-man over-the-top battle royal for the right to wrestle in the main event for the new FCW Florida Heavyweight Championship. Hager defeated DiBiase to win the belt. Also, I reported yesterday, that DiBiase, Jr. was the current FCW Southern Heavyweight champion. According to a fan report, he actually lost it a few weeks ago to "Handsome" Heath Miller. Now FCW has two Heavyweight belts and they plan on having a unification match between Hagar and Miller this Tuesday.

Courtesy of the official website of the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office, you can view a charge report on WWE developmental wrestler Ted DiBiase, Jr.’s DUI arrest yesterday at DiBiase, Jr.’s mugshot is also available on the page.
