this may not be WWE related but Shad's wife tweeted the following on Shad's site:
This is Shad's wife everyone. I want to address the rumors that are going on around the Internet right now about Shad's arrest.
He was indeed arrested today, in Columbus. No use denying it. But Shad did nothing wrong, he was trying to attend the Arnold Classic, and
Can you guys believe that the Columbus police department has nothing better to do than arrest him for crossing the street????!!
That's what they got him for "pedestrian in roadway" I think we should all stand up and be heard! Too many cops abusing their authority!!
Apparently they even decided that it was necessary to tackle him.... I am very disappointed in those who "serve and protect" right now.
When I spoke to him 4 hours ago he sounded ok. He was being cooperative with them, and still being nice to them!
I agree with everyone, it is so stupid, especially considering we are not from Columbus, how are we supposed to know all of the rules???
I am going to get a petition going in the morning. Right now I am tired, and just waiting to hear from him that he has been released.
His bond has been posted hours ago, they just take their sweet time processing the paper work.
We have a very good lawyer who will clear up all charges. I just hate to think of how terribly people are treated for such minor things.
How do they treat people who really break the law??
The number to the police department is 614-525-3368. Call in and demand Shad's freedom!!! Please, and thank you guys, would mean so much!
Speaking with Shad, he was arrested for walking in the sidewalk!
these are all back to back tweets that were posted a half an hour ago with the last one being at 12:39 am est.
