As you will see in this article, associating violence and crime with wrestlers isn't as far apart as you might think it would be (even though you sometimes might think that the violence is just always part of the act). Recurring crimes are common amongst wrestlers, and as you will see in this article, criminal offenses such as drunk driving and possession are common themes for wrestler crimes. Although, not all these offenses are so common, in this article you will see some absolutely embarrassing crimes as well, like urinating on a flight attended and showing off your private parts to an employee working at a hotel (yes, that happened); these wrestler crimes certainly leave you entertained, that’s for sure. Let’s now begin and check out these 15 crimes committed by wrestlers. Enjoy!

Despite not spending a full day behind bars, Vince was indicted by the federal government based on charges of distribution of illegal steroids and drugs. The investigation began in December of 1989. The FBI closed in on Dr. George T. Zahorian III, the doctor that the FBI believed was distributing illegal steroids to wrestlers in the WWE at the time. Zahorian was later caught and sentenced to three years in federal prison. Later on, after the doctor's arrest, the FBI indicted Vince for operating an illegal steroid distribution ring. On November 18th, 1993, McMahon was charged with possession of steroids and conspiracy to distribute steroids. This sentence was enough to lock Vince up for 11 years and fine him $2 million, while seizing the Titan Towers (valued at over $9 million). Kevin Walcholz, aka “Nailz”, testified against Vince, claiming he encouraged wrestlers to use steroids. The prosecution’s case would end up falling apart after Hulk Hogan (who was taken to the stand to testify against Vince) declared that he took steroids without Vince ever telling him a word about it. Vince would end up acquitted of all charges.
