According to a new report from PWInsider, former WWE superstar Joey Mercury was arrested this past Saturday morning, September 1 in Schaumburg, Illinois. He was in town to work as a producer on the recent All In pay-per-view event.
Mercury, whose real name is Adam Carlson Birch, was sleeping in his car outside of a Marriott hotel. Authorities learned of this and approached him; after running his personal information, they discovered that he was wanted on an outstanding warrant in Orange County, Florida and was taken into custody.
The Schaumburg Police Department confirmed that there are no pending charges against Mercury in the State of Illinois, but he is currently being held on $2,500 bail at the Cook County Department of Corrections in advance of a Tuesday 9/4 court date. This could result in Mercury being sent back to Florida.
We will continue to follow this story and provide any updates as they become available to us.
