WWE superstar Jimmy Uso’s ran into some trouble with the law this week in Detroit — ending up being arrested and having his mugshot taken.

According to TMZ, Jimmy Uso (real name Jonathan Fatu) was riding as a passenger in a car with his wife Naomi (Trinity Fatu) in Detroit when they were pulled over by cops. According to the police report, Naomi was driving the wrong way on a one-way street.

The police then reportedly asked her to step out of the car after smelling alcohol. According to the report, they asked Jimmy to stay in the car but he got out anyway.

TMZ reports that Jimmy then took off his jacket and “squared up with the officer.” Finally, Jimmy backed down and did what was asked, so they arrested him on charges of “disorderly conduct and obstruction.” He posted bond and was released — with his mugshot being obtained by TMZ:

PWInsider reported that they reached out to the WWE and received a one-word statement about the Jimmy Uso arrest.

“Jonathan Fatu is responsible for his own personal actions.”


This comes one year after Jey Uso (Joshua Fatu) was arrested in Hidalgo, Texas, and charged with a DUI (also via TMZ). The WWE released almost an identical statement when he was arrested.

Jimmy Uso had been arrested twice before — once in 2011 for DUI charges and again in 2013 for driving with a suspended license.

The Usos are booked to wrestle against Shane McMahon and The Miz at Elimination Chamber this weekend for the SmackDown Live tag team titles.
