Justin Credible was arrested for violating a protective order and disorderly conduct in Connecticut.
Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet reports that Credible was taken into custody on Tuesday. He was being held on $7,500 bond and bailed out on Thursday night. A protective order was issued for his wife last year following a domestic dispute.
Credible released a statement following his release.
This will be my one and only statement on the matter:
Everyone knows I have a history with addiction, and I have worked hard these last few months to battle my demons and keep my family strong. Like all marriages, mine has had it’s ups and downs. I have regained my sobriety, and today I am clean, and tomorrow hope for the same. All I can do is take it one day at a time and work on being the best me that I can. Issues came about Monday night, and I’ve regretted it every minute since. Their was no domestic violence that night, the only one to call the police was me. I was arrested because of an old protection order that was still in place from a previous incident. I will not make excuses for any of the actions that happened that night, but I promise to my fans, my friends and my family that the man Peter Polaco will never be a negative headline again, and the character Justin Credible still has many great moments left.
In closing, I would like to thank the fans that stuck beside me through this ordeal. Thanks to my countless friends who were there to pick me up and help me get back onto solid ground. Most importantly thank you to my lovely wife and kids who know that though I am not perfect my love for them is unconditional, and we will get through this fight together,
Stay tuned guys because Chapter 2 of my life is not only going to be a hell of a lot better, but it’s going to be done right. 2018/2019 is going to be our year.
Credible's battle with personal demons are well documented. He infamously interrupted an independent event in December 2017, showing up drunk and refusing to leave the ring. Reports indicated he would check himself in WWE sponsored rehab, but it's unclear if he ever followed up. Diamond Dallas Page, who has helped Scott Hall and Jake Roberts in the past, reached out to help Credible.
Credible is best known for his run in ECW. He and Lance Storm formed the Impact Players, winning the tag team titles on two separate occasions. As a singles star, he won the ECW World Title on April 22, 2000. He had multiple runs in WWF/WWE as well.
