A former WWE star arrested for selling drugs to an undercover police officer was suspended from his current job as an school teacher. According to the Times Free Press on Sept. 18, Michael David Droese was released from jail after posting a $10,000 bond.
In the '90s, Droese wrestled in the WWE as the character Duke "The Dumpster" Droese, and his gimmick at the time was that of a garbage man. Two of his earliest feuds was with Jerry "The King" Lawler and Triple H.
Since his retirement. Droese worked for the Warren County High School as a strength and conditioning coach for the football team. He also worked as a special education teacher in Tennessee at the time of his arrest.
The arrest occurred when Droese allegedly sold oxycodone and buprenorphine to an undercover police officer. The next day, the undercover officer returned and Droese sold him more oxycodone. That is when the former WWE star was arrested.
Warren County Sheriff Jackie Matheny said that he was shocked at the charges because Droese carried a very good reputation in the community. Matheny teaches the Drug Awareness Resistance Education program and said that people in the area had a lot of good things to say about the man.
If the charges are true, it proves you can't judge a book by it's cover, even when that book is in the form of a garbage man who wrestled for the WWE.
