The 25 Most Shocking Crimes Committed By Professional Wrestlers


Lex Luger

2003 was not a good year for Lex Luger. Luger was first arrested on April 19th, 2003 for beating his girlfriend and wrestling celebrity Miss Elizabeth until she had two bruised eyes, a lump to the head and a busted lip. He was charged with a misdemeanor count of battery and released on $2,500 bond.

Only two days later, he was arrested again for driving while under the influence, without a license.

Then shockingly, it took a turn for the surreal. Ms. Elizabeth was found dead in their townhouse in Marietta, Georgia on May 1st, 2003. She had overdosed on a mixture of steroids, hydrocodone, testosterone, alprazolam (a drug used to treat anxiety disorders) and Vodka. While Ms. Elizabeth’s death was ruled accidental, Luger was charged on 14 drug possession counts and was featured on the news around the country. Luger pleaded guilty on February 3rd, 2005. He was sentenced to five-years probation with random drug testing and forced to pay a $1,000 fine.
