Source: Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office

As we reported earlier, WWE superstar Santino Marella (real name- Anthony Carelli) was arrested this morning and charged with Driving Under the Influence in Tampa, Florida.

According to the police report, he was arrested at 6301 West Shore Boulevard with a blood alcohol level of 0.061. This figure is below Florida’s legal limit in 0.08.

Santino was booked in Hillsborough County jail at 4:36 a.m. on $500 bail.

The arrest record indicates WWE as the name of his employer, which is technically inaccurate, since Santino is an independent contractor and not an actual employee of the company.
