This is what they call breaking character. WWE wrestler Jack Swagger, who recently emerged as a racist “Tea Party” heel leading up to a showdown with Mexican-born Alberto Del Rio, was arrested for driving under the influence last night, according to TMZ. The site says Swagger was pulled over for speeding in Mississippi and was found to be driving under the influence and in possession of marijuana.
Twitter quickly settled on a #WeedThePeople hashtag to mark the event.
So, has Swagger blown his cover, or has he blown the lid off the Tea Party’s pot-fueled underbelly?
