As reported earlier, retired wrestler Maven Huffman has been arrested in Florida after allegedly visiting three doctors to score multiple pain medication prescriptions. Since the news broke, WWE has reportedly offered Maven rehab on their dime as part of their push to help former WWE wrestlers who find themselves in trouble with substance / pill abuse.
Huffman was a former Grade 6 teacher who was chosen the winner from 13 hopefuls on MTV’s made-for-TV reality show Tough Enough and given a contract with the WWE back in 2001.
According to TMZ.com, Huffman is believed to have collected more than 1,000 pills over the last two weeks by visiting different pharmacies in a bid to conceal his activity.
The 35-year-old, who was released on $2,000 bail, could face up to five years behind bars if convicted.
TMZ also obtained Maven’s mugshot (see below):
