Jack Swagger Faces Possible Suspension Or Worse For Pot Arrest

February 20, 2013 | Posted by Jeremy Thomas

- As previously reported, Jack Swagger was arrested on Tuesday night for a DUI and marijuana suspension. Per WWE’s Wellness Policy, just being arrested is enough for WWE to release him if they so desired. The policy lists as follows:

“Any WWE Talent, who is arrested, convicted or who admits to a violation of law relating to use, possession, purchase, sale or distribution of drugs will be in material breach of his/her contract with WWE and subject to immediate dismissal.”

In addition, the violation acts identically per the Wellness policy as a positive test for drugs which includes a potential fine, suspension or more. This would be Swagger’s first Wellness violation.
