TAMPA, FLA. (AP) - World Wrestling Entertainment star Jimmy Uso has been charged with driving under the influence in Tampa.

An arrest report says Uso, whose real name is Jonathan Fatu, was arrested early Thursday morning after an officer spotted him driving his silver Mustang the wrong direction on a one-way street. He was later released on $500 bail.

Police say the 26-year-old professional wrestler had a blood alcohol level of .18 percent. Florida law considers a driver impaired at .08.

Uso and his twin brother Jey have wrestled as a tag team for the WWE since May 2010.

Jail records didn’t list an attorney.

WWE spokesman Kevin Hennessy says the company is looking into the incident.
