The Rock Reveals When He Was Sadly Arrested

WWE legend The Rock has made multiple appearances at various events and recently, he appeared at the prestigious NASCAR Daytona 500 in the namesake city.



‘The Great One’ was invited to be the Grand Marshall for the event, which was responsible for kicking off the historic car race between some of the best drivers in the world. Though the event being delayed due to weather, The Rock held up his end of the bargain and stayed on till Monday for the event.

During his appearance at the Daytona 500, The Rock took to his X to state that a person in attendance yelled his high school’s name and even mentioned his football coach.

The Rock was reminded of the time he was arrested when he was 15. His coach advised him to stop getting into trouble and start playing football. The Rock considers it a turning point in his life and believes it changed him forever.

“Crazy moment here. You’ll see at the end, I’m shooting a cellphone vid for a guy – he gets my attention, by yelling my old high school in Pennsylvania (Freedom) and mentioning my high school football coach, Jody Cwick. The last time I got arrested at 15, Jody said “hey stop getting arrested and come play football for me”. I did. And it changed my life. He changed my life. You’ll see me look up and point, and and say “rest in peace, I love you brother” Amidst the adrenaline and beautiful chaos of #DAYTONA500 this moment was the last thing I expected. I’m grateful it did.”

The Rock kicked off the race as part of his Grand Marshall duties in his classic WWE style.
