TNA star Hector Garza was arrested on Monday in Houston, Texas on charges of possession of a controlled substance. Mexican newspaper El Norte states
the drugs were anabolic steroids Primobolan and Deca-Durabolin, which is used to regenerate injuries and to fortify muscle tissue.
Garza was on his way to the TNA Imapct! tapings in Orlando, Florida when he was detained by Immigration agents at the Houston International Airport.
We're told he was placed under arrest and was in court yesterday in Houston. He is currently being held in a Harris County, Texas jail.
Garza's brother Humberto told El Norte that the steroids were prescribed by a local doctor in Mexico, who overnighted the proof to the Mexican
Consulate in Houston. They will turn that into court for his defense. Humberto stated that Garza was being counseled by a personal attorney, while TNA
was sending one as well. Garza's bail was set at $1,000 but he was advised not to pay it for fear of being deported, which would destroy his Stateside
His problems caused rewrites at the TNA taping on Tuesday evening, where the wrestlers were told he had travel issues.
