Gulfport -

Professional wrestler Jack Swagger is scheduled for a June 25 trial in Gulfport Municipal Court on a charge of driving under the influence.

 

The 30-year-old Swagger, whose real name is Donald Jacob "Jake" Hager Jr., was arrested just before midnight Feb. 19 in Gulfport. Swagger had just completed taping the TV show "WWE SmackDown" in Biloxi at the Mississippi Coast Coliseum.

 

City prosecutor Kirk Clark tells The Sun Herald that he always recommends the maximum sentence of two days in jail for first-time offenders and completion of victim-impact classes.

 

Swagger's charges carry fines of $437 for possession of marijuana, $188 for driving 10 mph over the speed limit and $1,300 for driving impaired on a first DUI offense. The charges are misdemeanors.

 

Swagger lives in Boca Raton, Fla.
