TMZ.com is reporting that X-Pac (real name Sean Waltman) was arrested over the weekend for possession of meth and marijuana.
Waltman (age 44) was arrested at LAX after police state he tried to carry drugs through customs. He was preparing to fly to a wrestling event in the United Kingdom when he was stopped by customs. Airport police were called to the scene and he was arrested at the location. Waltman was then transported to a nearby jail, where he was booked for possession of a controlled substance.
Police also noted Waltman had an outstanding warrant for a prior DUI arrest. He has since been released on bond, set for $35k.
There was growing concern over the weekend that Waltman had fallen ill or something tragic had happened. He was scheduled to appear at IPW’s Extreme Measures, but noone had heard from him. Shortly after, word broke out among friends of Waltman that he was alive and ok, but was dealing with “issues.”
Waltman has been very open about past battles with drug addiction, and has been arrested for drug possession multiple times.
We will report more news on this story as it develops. In the meantime, our best wishes go out to Waltman as he continues his battle against addiction.
