Professional wrestler faces drug, burglary charges

Professional wrestler Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart has been arrested for possession and trafficking in a controlled substance and burglary, according to a Hillsborough County Sheriff’s arrest report.

Neidhart, 55, of Wesley Chapel, was a wrestler and tag team champion with the World Wrestling Federation in the 1980s and 1990s. He was a wrestling partner of Bret Hart.

Just before 3 p.m. Sunday, Neidhart was pumping gas at the A.J. Food Market, 9806 Tom Folsom Road, Thonotosassa, when he began yelling and causing a disturbance, the sheriff’s office said.

The sheriff’s arrest report said he was seen opening pill bottles located in the trunk of his silver Pontiac Sunfire.

When deputies arrived at the scene, he was agitated and aggressive. He was observed “ingesting multiple pills that he dropped on the ground while inside the trunk of his vehicle,” the sheriff’s office arrest report states.

He was found in possession of 55.6 grams of Oxycontin and 17.4 grams of methadone.
