FORMER wrestling star Buff Bagwell has been arrested on more than TEN charges following a car accident on Saturday.
The ex-WWE and WCW wrestler – real name Marcus – was involved in a collision in Cobb County, Georgia over the weekend.
Bagwell, 51, was arrested at the scene – close to his home in Woodstock – at around 1.25pm.
The American was charged with speeding, driving under the influence of drugs and hit and run among others.
Bagwell was forced to pay around £11,200 bond and was released around 9.15pm.
The ex-WWE star was involved in another car incident last summer.
In August 2020, Bagwell was hospitalised with broken ribs, a broken hip, a broken left socket bone, a broken nose and a torn groin muscle following a serious accident, also in Cobb County.
At the time, Cobb County police noted Bagwell was 'impaired by prescription medication' at the time of the crash.
Bagwell made his professional wrestling debut in 1990 before signing for WCW in 1991.
He stayed with the company until 2001, when it was taken over by WWE.

Bagwell was part of New World Order (nWo) during his time in WCW, as well as one half of The American Males alongside Scotty Riggs.
He was also part of tag-team Totally Buffed alongside Lex Luger.
However, Bagwell failed to replicate his success on the biggest stage.
The American five-time tag-team champion lasted just ONE match in WWE.
In 2001, Bagwell lost to Booker T in the WCW Championship match in the summer of 2001.
He was promptly released by WWE and moved on to other independent wrestling companies, such as TNA.
