Ric Flair Was Sentenced To Jail After Crimes

With decades of experience in the pro wrestling business, Ric Flair has left a trail of memories in numerous towns. However, it seems that along the way, he also accumulated quite a collection of speeding tickets, leading to an unexpected stint behind bars.



Ric Flair is no stranger to controversy, as fans of the Dark Side of the Ring series are well aware. It appears that the Nature Boy’s penchant for pushing boundaries extends beyond the wrestling ring to his driving habits.

During an interview on the Full Send Podcast, Ric Flair revealed that he has received nearly 90 speeding tickets over the course of his career. Spending countless hours on the side of the road conversing with law enforcement officers eventually landed him in a bit of trouble.

Flair shared an incident where he was arrested and taken to court. The judge informed him that he had accumulated a staggering 86 moving violations in just two years. As a result, he was sentenced to 30 days behind bars.

The experience of spending time in jail has undoubtedly left an indelible mark on Flair. It is an episode he certainly does not want to repeat. Fortunately for him, as his wrestling schedule has significantly diminished in recent years, the likelihood of finding himself on lengthy tours has decreased. This allows him to enjoy his life outside the ring, though it does not necessarily mean that he will completely change his “Nature Boy” ways.

I got arrested one time, and they took me to court. They said I had 86 moving violations in 2 years, so the judge put me in jail for 30 days.

Ric Flair’s revelation about his numerous speeding tickets and subsequent time in jail offers a glimpse into the colorful life he has led both inside and outside the wrestling industry. It serves as a reminder that even legendary figures like Flair are not immune to the consequences of their actions. Nonetheless, Flair’s ability to adapt and embrace a more relaxed schedule allows him to continue living life on his own terms, while still embodying the charisma and zest that made him a beloved figure in the world of professional wrestling.
