Former WWE wrestler Shane “Hurricane” Helms was arrested on Wednesday (August 24), for a DWI on Wednesday, August 24th in Smithfield, North Carolina. This comes just four days after his friend Matt Hardy was arrested for similar charges. Shortly after Hardy’s arrest, Helms said the following on his Twitter: “TMZ [who broke the news], a site that profits off the mistakes and downfalls of human beings. How proud they must be. What a bunch of maggots,” he wrote.
Helms, who is still recovering from a motorcycle accident, is being charged for “driving while impaired” and “serious injury by vehicle.” The former WWE wrestler is expected to appear in court on September 22nd.
