In case you didn't know...
Ric Flair underwent emergency surgery last year when he had to be admitted to the hospital with serious health-related problems. An obstructive part of his bowel had to be removed, following which he went through kidney failure and dialysis. He was discharged from hospital and went through rehabilitation to regain his health.
Recently, the Nature Boy went through voluntary surgery yet again; a surgery to reverse a temporary colostomy that he said would help him to feel like the old 'Naitch' again.
The heart of the matter
Chambersburg, PA resident Jeffrey Dean Gross was arrested on Saturday afternoon, after officers arrived on the scene to find Gross lying on the ground next to a Honda SUV. He was arrested and charged with 'Driving w/o a license', 'Failing to carry license', 'Receiving stolen property', and 'Driv While Oper Priv Susp Or Revoked'.
Gross informed the police that the vehicle was out of gas and his license was suspended, and also expired. The officers discovered that the vehicle had been stolen from another township in Pennsylvania.
This was when Gross confessed that the car belonged to Ric Flair and that he had taken it while planning to return it on Saturday. He was taken to Franklin County Jail, and his bond was posted as being $50,000.
Ric Flair is yet to comment on the incident publicly.
Gross' preliminary hearing is scheduled to take place on the 14th of August.
