WWE superstar Jimmy Uso, whose real name is Jonathan Solofa Fatu, was arrested in Detroit after what TMZ Sports is calling a drunken dispute with police. The 33-year-old was reportedly in a car with his wife, fellow WWE superstar Naomi, when the vehicle was pulled over for going the wrong way on a one-way street.
According to the report, the vehicle the two were in smelled strongly of alcohol so Naomi, who was driving, was asked to exit the vehicle.
Eventually, Jimmy Uso got agitated and exited the vehicle himself despite being told to remain inside.
Once he was outside, the report states Uso removed his shirt and squared up with police officers indicating that he wanted to fight. After the police officer removed his taser, Uso calmed down.
However, he was ultimately arrested for disorderly conduct and obstruction before being released from jail on bond.
TMZ shared a photo of Uso’s mugshot from the arrest.

And they say that wrestlers don't live their gimmick anymore. I wonder if he yelled "welcome to Uso Penitentiary!" when he was put in a cell. What's going to happen with their match this weekend at Elimination Chamber? #wwe #jimmyuso #usopenitentiary #tagteamwrestling #smackdownlive #eliminationchamber#wrestling #wrestlingpodcast #podcast
Uso is a member of the popular tag team duo The Usos, along with his twin brother. The pair have won the WWE Tag Team Championship on multiple occasions. There is no word on whether Usos arrest will impact his scheduled appearance on Sunday, February 17 where he and his brother were scheduled to face Shane McMahon and The Miz for the WWE World Tag Team at the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view in Houston.
