Thonotosassa, Florida (AP) --

A former professional wrestler is being held in jail on drug and burglary charges.

A Hillsborough County Sheriff's arrest report says 55-year-old
Jim "The Anvil" Neidhart was arrested on Sunday, September 5 for possession and trafficking in a controlled substance and burglary. Jail records show no bond had been set by Monday. It was not immediately known if he has an attorney.

The arrest report says Neidhart was at a gas station yelling and
causing a disturbance. He was seen "ingesting multiple pills" and
Oxycontin pills and methadone prescribed to someone else was also
found in his possession.

The sheriff's office says the person whose name was on the
prescription pills had reported her home was burglarized and her
medication stolen. Neidhart is believed to be a friend of the
woman.
