WWE legend Bret Hart’s nephew Teddy Hart is back in jail in relation to a DUI on New Years Day.
The Canadian wrestler — real name Edward Annis — was taken into custody on November 5 ahead of his next hearing.
According to Pro Wrestling Sheet, Hart was detained in early 2017 for driving under the influence and attempting to evade a lawful arrest.
He also allegedly made a dangerous traffic violation and operating a vehicle without the owner’s consent.
Hart — who was the youngest person ever to sign a WWE contract at 18 — managed to deliver a message to his fans from jail through a friend on Twitter.
He said: “I want to give everyone an update on what’s going on with me because I know a lot of people are asking.
“I am back in Texas right now and I’m waiting the next hearing on my court case from 2016.
“I have a great lawyer working for me and a lot of good people in my corner.
“No matter what happens I know that I have to keep my head up.
“I beleive that God has a plan for me and I am prepared to face the consequences for my actions whatever they may be.

“Thank you to all the fans and promoters and friends who have asked about me and are praying for me.
“I will see you all soon and hopefully have the opportunity to pick up where we left off.
“God Bless – Teddy Hart.”
Teddy has a history of run ins with the law, including being cleared of rape accusations in 2014.
He is also known for bringing his cat, Mr Money, to the ring with him and is known for breeding the pets.
Reports claim the cat was licensed to him after a psychiatric evaluation.
And Hart is also known for once boasting that he made more money selling cats and marijuana than in wrestling.

ENGLAND’S Ashes campaign got off to the worst possible start after Alastair Cook was dismissed in just the third over.
The former captain edged behind the 16th ball of the First Test from Mitchell Starc and Peter Handscomb took the catch at first slip.
Cook had looked composed and untroubled in the first over, but it was the Aussies celebrating soon after.
The tone for the entire series has frequently been set by what happens in the early skirmishes at Brisbane.
Or, in the case of Nasser Hussain’s decision to field first in 2002, before even a ball is bowled.
Remember Michael Slater hitting Phillip DeFreitas’ first ball for four in 1994 or Steve Harmison spearing his first delivery straight to Andrew Flintoff at second slip in 2006.
Joe Root won the toss and that gave Cook and Mark Stoneman an instant taste of the pace of Australia’s fast bowlers.
Australian vice-captain David Warner recovered from a neck strain to take his place in the line-up, and Shaun Marsh proved his fitness after reporting a sore back following practice on the eve of the match.
Root said England had three good warm-up matches and had gathered momentum.
England hold the Ashes after winning the 2015 series 3-2 at home, and have had the better of cricket’s oldest high-profile bilateral contests in the last decade with four wins in the last five series.
But the Australians swept England 5-0 in 2013-14 in the last Ashes series Down Under.
Root, who played four of the five Tests on his last trip to Australia, said there were no scars for his team.
He said: “For me it’s completely irrelevant what happened four years ago. We’ve won four of the last five Ashes.”
