Dean Ambrose jokes about 'international weapons charge' on his record

Published Add your comment

En route to the top of the WWE's main roster, Dean Ambrose has made a name for himself as a wrestler who isn't afraid to use any object nearby as a weapon against his opponent.

You only have to look back to The Lunatic Fringe's Extreme Rules match against Chris Jericho - where everything from thumbtacks, a barbed wire two-by-four and a kendo stick were available - to see the array of weapons Ambrose is familiar with.

According to the reigning WWE champion, however, his penchant for dangerous objects has got him in trouble with the law before. Speaking in an interview with WWE, Ambrose claimed that he actually has an "international weapons charge" thanks to one particular item.

The object that caused the issue? A pair of nunchucks Ambrose tried to take with him on a flight:

"Border patrol will frown on these weapons," the Superstar told Reene Young this week before revealing that having them in his possession cost him a hit to his bank balance on one occasion.

"I paid the fine...It's a whole...I'm not at liberty to talk about it anymore. I was just more mad that they took them away.

"I like the fact that I have an international weapons charge on my record."

As is so often the case with Ambrose, it is almost impossible to tell when he is being serious and when he is joking.

Let's hope that on this occasion he is simply exaggerating the story to add to his reputation inside the squared circle.

Nevertheless, having come through the ranks of the hardcore indie scene, you wouldn't bet against Ambrose having had a few run-ins with the law regarding his carry-on luggage in the past.
