Szatowski, Brunk plead guilty Thursday

HANGING ROCK — Two professional wrestlers busted for drugs in Hanging Rock pleaded guilty Thursday in Ironton Municipal Court and will pay fines and court costs for their misdemeanor crimes.

Robert Alex Szatowski, also known as Rob Van Dam, and Terry Michael Brunk, also known as Sabu, from Extreme Championship Wrestling and World Wrestling Entertainment, showed up at the Ironton City Center shortly after 9 a.m. for their appearances before Judge Clark Collins.

For more than an hour, they sat alongside crowds of others also waiting for court to begin.

The wrestlers were greeted by several fans, but refused to talk to the media. When Brunk, Szatowski and his wife, Sonya, filed into the courtroom, the two wrestlers directed obscene hand gestures to the media.

Brunk, 42, was the first to be brought before Judge Collins Thursday. He pleaded guilty to third-degree possession of drugs. Another charge against him, possession of drugs paraphernalia, was dropped as part of a plea bargain.

Brunk was sentenced to 10 days in jail, but that time was suspended by Collins. The wrestler will have to pay a $500 fine and court costs.

Szatowski, 35, pleaded guilty to driving 73 mph in a 55 mph zone and third-degree possession of marijuana.

A charge of possession of Vicodin was dropped because the wrestler had a valid prescription for the painkiller. Szatowski will have to pay $140 in fines and court costs.

The charges stem from a traffic stop July 2 by the Ohio State Highway Patrol on U.S. 52, near Patrick Street. The two were apparently driving from their winning matches at the Big Sandy Superstore Arena in Huntington, W.Va., earlier in the evening.

According to the OSHP, Szatowski — who is also referred to as Szatkowski — was initially stopped for speeding. When troopers approached his vehicle, they smelled marijuana and performed a search.

Troopers found the wrestler in possession of 18 grams of marijuana and five Vicodin. Brunk was with reportedly in possession of drug paraphernalia and also had nine pills that were not immediately identifiable, but were known to be controlled substances, according to the OSHP. Both were cited and posted bond at the scene.

Szatowski has had a long, successful career with both the WWE and ECW. In the week after his arrest, the wrestler lost both championship titles and was suspended for a month without pay.

Brunk, who is a long-time training partner of Szatowski, has also had a successful career with the ECW, earning world heavyweight championship titles two times and tag team championship honors three times. He was fined $1,000 by the WWE as a result of his arrest.

The wrestlers competed on this week's ECW show. Brunk lost to Paul Heyman in an extreme rules match. Szatowski was disqualified during a match with Hardcore Holly.

Finally our long dark national nightmare is over. Never a good idea to flip off the press corps, though I do like Sabu's version of 'dress attire.'

Friggin Hell - I thought that first pic was a shaved Sabu! Those years of 'Extreme' Wrestling sure took the toll on him!

No, you mean your name is Szatkowski but they can call you Stawatosy... Swatasaky, Szawatasasoky err... I see why he calls himself Van Dam.

Well yeah- I just hope they trust Van Dam with the gold again sometime...

Why he ever changed his name for the wrestling ring is beyond me.

Yep - those initials would end up sounding like YOU'RE A ASS when he points to himself. Only in certain parts of the country, but still - you know how these crowds copycat

CRS: LEGALIZE IT, AM I RIGHT

Eh...Goverment regulated pot would SUCK. They can't get prescription drugs right!

No No No. No leagalization. Just decriminalization.

Decriminalize it, meaning making it a normal perscription drug. Leagising it would mean anyone off the streets could walk into they're local Walgreens, Osco Drug, CVS, etc and buy the stuff over the counter. Decriminalizing it would regulate it, meaning only those who need it, would get it. Perscription Pot, if you will.

And... Sabu has horrible fashion sence.

Crap...I could've drivin over if I knew. That would've been neat to watch. I didn't even work until late Thrusday. Well, does anyone actually follow the letter of the law anymore? Agree in an off way with CRZ...legalize it.
