FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – A New Haven man who once performed at WrestleMania is accused of driving with a blood-alcohol-content of .259%, according to the Ashley-Hudson Police Department.

Officers pulled over 27-year-old Zachary J. Burnside this past Saturday night after watching a vehicle he’s accused of driving swerve over the center line and also over the side fog line while going south on Interstate 69 around 8 p.m.

Burnside consented to a chemical breath test at the scene, which measured his blood-alcohol-content at more than three times the legal limit .08%, according to police. He was then arrested on a preliminary Level 6 felony count of operating a vehicle while intoxicated and two misdemeanor counts of operating while intoxicated.

He was then booked into DeKalb County Jail but later made bail and was released, according to court records.

Burnside once gained a measure of local fame by dressing up as a stack of pancakes during The New Day’s entrance at WrestleMania 34 at the Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana.

The WWE’s flagship annual show in 2018 was attended by more than 72,000 people as millions watched from home on pay-per-view at the time.
