Hello, wrestling fans and Wrestling Fan fans~! I'm Catherine Perez, and this is a Deadface Walking News Brief. A 2008 police mugshot of NXT winner Wade Barrett is making the rounds on the internet. According to several sites, Barrett was arrested in Tampa, Florida on June 15th, 2008 and charged with battery of a law enforcement officer and obstructing or opposing an officer. Those are some serious charges for a guy who merely fed a cop's horse some sweets. HE DIDN'T KNOW THAT HORSE WAS A DIABETIC~!

Actually, the charges came about when Barrett got into it with some random lady who bumped into him at a bar. When Barrett tried to leave the bar, a plain-clothes cop stopped him and, as one version of the story goes (this is the part where you have yourself a grain or two of salt), the cop shot him with a taser gun to keep him from fleeing the scene. Damn it, and a "don't tase me, bro" joke is far past the point of relevance now... Anyway, the female declined to press charges, and Barrett insisted that he never got into a physical altercation with anyone.

During his short stay in jail, a man who identified himself as Nasty Nate insisted on having Barrett's cocktail fruit. Luckily, he was saved by another man known as Squirrel Master, who claimed him as his bitch. There's a valuable lesson to be learned here, readers, and I'll let you know once I figure it out myself. Until then, keep your delicious sweets to yourself.
