WWE star Sean Waltman, also known as “X-Pac” attempted to smuggle meth and weed through an airport this past weekend.

The 44-year-old was traveling from LAX to a wrestling appearance in England before Customs officials stopped him, according to TMZ.

After a search, they found drugs, and airport police were dispatched to the scene, where they arrested and charged X-Pac with possessing controlled substance. Police also concluded that Waltman had an outstanding arrest warrant stemming from a prior DUI.

Initially, the “D-Generation X” member was believed to be missing after he neglected to appear for an Extreme Measures event in England.

Sean Waltman, a.k.a. X-Pac, has been arrested multiple times on drug possession charges.

“With regret, unless a miracle occurs, X-Pac will not be appearing at the Extreme Measures event today,” International Pro Wrestling announced in a Facebook post. “He was scheduled to land in the UK on Saturday at 2 pm, but 12 hours later nobody has heard from him. We wish Sean well and hope he is safe.”

Waltman has dealt with drug abuse problems in the past. In an interview with Steve Austin in 2013, Waltman said he turned to drinking at least a fifth of Oso Negro every day and tried to commit suicide. He was arrested in 2011 for two outstanding charges of possessing a controlled substance and one charge of possessing drug paraphernalia. Waltman also confessed to shooting up drugs before a fight with AJ Styles on the “Steve Austin Show” podcast, where he also described meth as “incredible.”

The two-time WWF European Champion broke his silence about the incident on Tuesday.

“I had a crazy weekend. I’ll get into it Wednesday. Way too much to tweet about. Still strong & healthy. No relapse,” Waltman said.

He was freed on Sunday after he posted $35,000 bail.
