Fatu's wife Trinity (aka WWE's Naomi) was allegedly the driver of the car, which was reportedly driving the wrong way down a one-way street at the time that they were pulled over. The police noted that the vehicle smelled of alcohol.
As the police spoke to Naomi, Uso is alleged to have exited the vehicle, despite commands from the present officer to remain in the car. Uso then reportedly removed his jacket and his shirt, in a manner that the officer believed indicated that Uso intended to engage in a fight. The officer pulled his taser out in fear over his own safety.
Uso then calmed down and complied with police as he was arrested on the aforementioned charges.
WWE subsequently released a statement saying, "Jonathan Fatu is responsible for his own personal actions."
As of now, Uso is scheduled to team with brother Jey at Sunday's Elimination Chamber pay-per-view, wrestling SmackDown Tag Team Champions Shane McMahon and The Miz.
