The Big Show
Memphis police arrested Paul Wight, aka The Big Show, Paul Wight, in December 1998 for allegedly exposing himself to a female motel employee. Prosecutors had insufficient evidence to proceed and subsequently dropped the criminal charges. The 500-pound-wrestler--then billed as The Giant--was in Memphis for a World Championship Wrestling (WCW) event; he now wrestles (as The Big Show) for Vince McMahon's World Wrestling Entertainment, which took over WCW in 2001.
