If all professional wrestler Jack Swagger had were tickets for speeding and misdemeanor marijuana possession, he could pay them by mail or online.

Authorities say it is the driving under the influence charge that requires him to return to Gulfport.

Swagger, whose real name is Donald Jacob "Jake" Hager Jr., was arrested just before midnight Tuesday in Gulfport. Hager had just completed taping the TV show "WWE SmackDown" in Biloxi at the Mississippi Coast Coliseum.

Police Lt. Craig Petersen tells the Sun Herald that Swagger was released from custody to a friend who picked him up at the police station.

Petersen says a small amount of marijuana was found in Swagger's possession.

His municipal court date is March 12. The charges are misdemeanors.
