Former WWE performer James Henry Neidhart, 55, (a/k/a Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart) made his first appearance in court this morning in Tampa, Florida to face two counts of possession of controlled substances with intent to distribute, two counts of trafficking illegal drugs, one count of burglary of an unoccupied dwelling, and one count of third degree grand theft for property stolen between $300 and $5,000. His bond was set at $138,500.
Neidhart’s arrest was covered this morning by several local media outlets including WTVT-TV and Tampa Bay Online. TBO notes that Neidhart allegedly pried open the rear door of a neighbor’s home and stole her prescription pills, which are valued at more than $300.
The father of WWE Diva Natalya was arrested Sunday at 2:50 p.m. after deputies were alerted to him being loud and unruly as he was pumping gas at the A.J. Food Market, located at 9806 Tom Folsom Road. He was seen opening pill bottles located in the trunk of his silver Pontiac Sunfire, according to a Hillsborough County Sheriff’s arrest report.
When authorities arrived to the scene, he was agitated and aggressive. He was observed “ingesting multiple pills that he dropped on the ground while inside the trunk of his vehicle,” the sheriff’s office arrest report states.
Neidhart’s mugshot has been posted on the Sheriff’s website, which is below:
