Powerbusted: Former WWE champion Sid Vicious arrested for possession of marijuana
Former World Wrestling Entertainment champion Sid Eudy, better known as Sid Vicious, was pulled over Sunday night in South Memphis for not wearing a seat belt when officers noticed 18 grams of pot in a baggy in an armrest. Eudy was promptly arrested. (Thankfully, no scissors were found on his person.)
Reports WREG-TV: Eudy, who lives in Marion, Arkansas, was pulled over by police officers at South Third and Brooks for not wearing a seatbelt, but they also busted him for possessing pot. Police apparently noticed a bag containing 18 grams of marijuana sitting on his armrest. Eudy was charged with marijuana possession, driving without a license and not wearing a seat belt in the high- profile arrest of a former wrestling superstar.
Jerry Lawler said, “I’ve known Sid for many years. There were not many who were more imposing that had a better look than Sid Vicious. He was basically a really good guy and an easygoing guy, even though that’s not the persona you think of Sid Vicious–a big kind of scary guy. He did what he did well on the local scene in Memphis and when he went up to WWE and did well there, and he wrestled overseas. From what I understand this wasn’t a big amount. It’s for his personal use.”
All that pot certainly explains why Sid was always so mellow, so friendly backstage in my experiences with the big guy. According to reader John Keating, police have still not been confirmed or denied the presence of a squeegee at the scene.
