When working in the professional wrestling business, you are bound to come across a lot of limelight. When some of this would be good, others wouldn’t be things that one could be proud about. The stories of wrestlers getting arrested and going to prison belong to this category. And since the wrestling business is always under the media scanner, whenever someone gets arrested, it turned out into a media fiasco, worsening the situation.
We, as fans, have come across a string of such incidents and in this list; we are going to take a look at some of those professional wrestlers that went to prison.
#5 Ric Flair
The Stylin', profilin', limousine riding, jet flying, kiss stealing, wheelin' n' dealin' son of a gun! has had his fair share of trouble with the police. Flair was arrested numerous times for ridiculous reasons. In 1996, he was arrested for letting an underage drunk girl drive his car and then almost a decade later, he was arrested for road rage.
Flair apparently caught a motorist by his neck and kicked the door off an SUV. For someone who is respected so much in the business, Flair has spent a ridiculous amount of time behind the bars. These days, thankfully, he has calmed and is cleaner.
