WWE Superstar Jimmy Uso was reportedly arrested early Thursday morning near Pensacola, Florida, for allegedly driving under the influence.

According to TMZ Sports, Uso (real name Jonathan Fatu) was accused of "driving with an unlawful blood-alcohol level." He was reportedly still in custody as of Thursday morning and was being held on $1,000 bond.

TMZ released the Uso's mugshot taken following Thursday's arrest:

Per WrestlingInc.com's Marc Middleton, WWE released a statement regarding the arrest: "Jonathan Fatu is responsible for his own personal actions."

This marks Uso's second arrest in the past five months after he was arrested in Detroit in February on charges of disorderly conduct and obstruction.

After the February arrest, Uso agreed to a plea deal that resulted in him paying a $450 fine. Police alleged that Uso got out of the car and "squared up" to them during after they pulled over his wife, WWE Superstar Naomi, for driving in the wrong direction on a one-way street.

After the arrest, Detroit police released body camera footage, and while it did not show Uso "squaring up," it did feature Naomi telling the police that Uso was "intoxicated."

Uso was arrested for driving under the influence in 2011 and again in 2013 for violating the terms of his probation by driving with a suspended license, although his attorney challenged the second charge.

The 33-year-old Uso's twin brother and tag team partner, Jey Uso, was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated in January 2018.

Jimmy's most recent arrest came just three days after they interacted with John Cena on Monday's Raw Reunion show. During the segment, Cena poked fun at their mugshots and asked, "How was it getting arrested?"

The Usos have been on WWE's main roster since 2010, and they are among the most decorated tag teams in company history with six title reigns.
