Swagger to appear in court on June 25 for February arrest


The Sun Herald newspaper is reporting that Jack Swagger is set for trial on June 25 in Gulfport Municipal Court to answer the charges of driving under the influence, speeding, and possession of marijuana from back in February.

Swagger was arrested right after he finished taping Smackdown after the cops stopped his car for speeding. Cops then smelled marijuana and found him in possession of a small amount. He was released later that night and WWE didn’t punish him (yet) as he was in one of the main events of WrestleMania.

According to the report, the City prosecutor always recommends the maximum sentence of two days in jail for first-time offenders and a completion of victim-impact classes.

The fines associated with his charges are $437.25 for possession of marijuana, $180 for driving 10 mph over the speed limit, and $1,300 for driving impaired.
