Wife Of Former WWE Star Alleges Racial Profiling In Arrest



Shad Gaspard, who rose to fame as a member of Cryme Tyme in World Wrestling Entertainment, was arrested Saturday in Columbus, Ohio on charges of resisting arrest and obstructing official business.

Gaspard’s wife Siliana stated to TMZ.com that her husband was a victim of racial profiling by police, who arrested him for jaywalking as he was heading to the Arnold Fitness Expo. She says Gaspard submitted into a kneeling position to indicate he was not resisting, but cops nonetheless shoved his face into dirt.

Former UFC Heavyweight Champion Josh Barnett, who accompanied Gaspard, backed up his version of events on Twitter.

“Shad Gaspard arrested because a Columbus officer abuses his authority,” he wrote last night. “False jaywalking charge + attitude turns to handcuffs and tackling.”

Gaspard is pursuing an acting career after parting ways with WWE in November. He continues to wrestle as he signed with Japanese wrestling promotion Inoki Genome Federation (IGF) last month.
