Former ECW and WWE wrestler Justin Credible says he could go to jail soon over an arrest that took place earlier this year … however, we’ve learned he recently caught a break in the case.
Credible — real name PJ Polaco — posted a YouTube video Tuesday evening saying, “I simply got arrested for threatening someone who I love and would never hurt, or touch.”
“Yet tomorrow I face, at 9am in the morning, I face jail time and I have not had a public defender get back to me.” He adds, “I have worked for 23 years for the World Wrestling Entertainment company, I’m a former world champion, and my life is on the line here. And it’s very scary.”
Pro Wrestling Sheet checked with court officials in Connecticut and here’s what happened.
We’re told Credible was arrested in March for disorderly conduct and threatening in the second degree. Since it was a domestic situation, a protective order was issued.
Court officials say on Wednesday the case was continued till September 13 and a decision was made to have Polaco supervised by a family relations officer until then. We’re told jail time isn’t usually involved when this happens. Instead, the offender is put into a program afterward.
We’ll update you after his next court date.
