This isn't Reid's first run-in with the law. This marks the third time in the past two years that he has been arrested in Mecklenburg County, NC. He was arrested in March for driving under the influence and was arrested in 2007 for two counts of misdemeanor assault. His arrest record can be found here.
Reid has been on the radar of wrestling fans ever since his father, Ric Flair, was suspended by WCW for attending one of his amateur wrestling matches in 1998. Reid wrestled a few times on television for WCW. As a 10-year old, he pinned Eric Bischoff in a match on Nitro and a few years later he teamed with his father during his feud against Vince Russo and David Flair.
After the closing of WCW, Reid wasn't heard from again until last year during the weekend of WrestleMania XXIV which saw the retirement of his father. In December, he wrestled in his "debut" match in a tag team match with his brother as they beat The Nasty Boys in a match where Hulk Hogan was the referee.
