Former professional wrestler X-Pac took to Twitter on Monday to assure his fans that he has not suffered a drug relapse. Of course, last I checked social media assurances aren’t admissible in court.
Which is why the WWE legend may still find himself in jail.
X-Pac, whose real name is Sean Waltman, was arrested over the weekend for trying to bring methamphetamine and marijuana through customs at Los Angeles International Airport before his flight to the United Kingdom. The 44-year-old has been open about his struggles with drug addiction in the past, so naturally people have begun wondering if he is still using. Waltman says he is not, tweeting:
“I've had a crazy weekend. I'll get into it on the show Wednesday. Way too much to tweet about. Still mentally strong & healthy. No relapse.”
And it looks like he didn’t have a relapse as, according to a police report obtained by TMZ Sports, they found three cannibis chocolate bars, two THC liquid cigarettes, and 38 methamphetamine capsules along with $736.10 cash in his luggage.
Yeah and that’s way too much for any man to ingest. When you have that amount of those substances… you’re selling them.
Which is why Waltman was charged with possession of narcotics with intent to sell—a felony that carries a maximum sentence of four years in prison.
Yeah he didn’t have a terrible relapse.
He had a horrific lapse in judgment.
