THONOTOSASSA, FLA. (AP) - Authorities say former WWE wrestler Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart has been arrested on drug charges in Florida.

A Hillsborough County Sheriff’s arrest report says the 55-year-old was arrested Sunday. The report says Neidhart was yelling outside a gas station yelling and was seen swallowing several pills.

The report says he had Oxycontin pills and methadone that were prescribed to someone else.

The sheriff’s office says the person whose name was on the pills had reported that her medication was stolen from her home. The Tampa Tribune reports that Neidhart is being held on charges of possession and trafficking in a controlled substance and burglary.


Jail records show bond had not been set for Neidhart as of Monday, and it was not immediately known if he had an attorney.
