Breaking News: Jim "The Anvil" Neidhart Arrested On Drug & Burglary Charges!

A local FOX affiliate in Tampa is reporting that former WWE superstar Jim Neidhart has been arrested and charged with two counts of possession of a controlled substance, two counts of trafficking in a controlled substance, one count of burglary of an occupied dwelling, and one count of grand theft.

According to the report, Neidhart was arrested in Thonotosassa, Florida after deputies were alerted to Neidhart being loud and yelling as he attempted to open a pill bottle while pumping gas at a gas station parking lot located at 3100 Flethcher Avenue.

After reportedly being argumentative with the authorities, Neidhart was patted him down and they found 28 methodone tablets and 95 oxycotin pills. Several pill bottles in Neidhart’s possession were belonging to neighbors who had recently reported them stolen.

Neidhart, who was listed as a self-employed entertainer on his arrest record, is currently being held without bond pending his first appearance before a judge. Due to the Labor Day holiday, it’s unlikely he will be seen before Tuesday.
