Ric Flair has decades under his belt in the pro wrestling business, and he has made plenty of towns along the way. It seems that he also received a lot of speeding tickets in the process, and that landed him with a stint in the slammer.

Ric Flair is no stranger to controversy, as fans of Dark Side of the Ring know well. It seems that the Nature Boy also likes to live on the edge when he’s driving, as well as flying.

While speaking to the Full Send Podcast, Ric Flair revealed that the received nearly 90 speeding tickets over the years. All of that time on the side of the road speaking to police also got him a little bit of time behind bars.

I got arrested one time, and they took me to court. They said I had 86 moving violations in 2 years, so the judge put me in jail for 30 days.


Ric Flair obviously doesn’t want to find himself in jail again for any reason. Thankfully, it doesn’t seem like he’ll be making many more lengthy pro wrestling tours, since his schedule has greatly diminished in recent memory. Now, he can enjoy his life, but that doesn’t mean he’ll change his Nature Boy ways.

Only time will tell when Ric Flair shows up again, but he’s likely to still have that amazing charisma. Sadly, that styling and profiling didn’t help him with the judge on that occasion.
