Bo Dallas missed the Mexico tour this past weekend because he was arrested after being taken off the plane at Dallas/Forth Worth airport in the evening.
The news was originally broken by Steven Bell of The Late Shift podcast and later confirmed by multiple insiders. Dallas was apparently shouting at the flight crew while he was pretty drunk, singing ‘Circle of Life’ from the Lion King movie. Police officers were called in after he was ejected from the plane and took him in custody.
The police report, obtained by Pro Wrestling Sheet, says that he was arrested at 7:25PM for public intoxication/drunkenness but no force was used to take him in. The reporting officer wrote that Dallas – real name Taylor Rotunda – was kicked off flight Envoy 3331 heading to Puebla, Mexico and was then found several gates away from his departure point. He was wearing a grey Tapout shirt.
“Rotunda dropped his phone, passport, and boarding pass. Rotunda stood up and was very unsteady on his feet. I could immediately smell a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage emitting from Rotunda’s person,” the officer wrote in his report. When asked how much he drank, the WWE Superstar said “a little bit” and when pressed how much is a little bit, he replied, “I’m not really planning on driving tonight!”
The officer wrote that based on his investigation, he was a danger to himself and others, put him in cuffs and took him to jail. The whole incident was captured on two body cameras.
