Former WWE and ECW star Justin Credible was arrested several weeks back on charges of third degree forgery and sixth degree larceny. The charges were actually filed in June of last year and Credible was booked after turning himself in to deal with the issue.

Credible issued the following to PWInsider following a query about the arrest:

"This was something stemming from two years ago when my father was in Portugal on vacation and I cashed one of his checks that he told me I could cash. I went to check-cashing and he forgot he gave me the authority. He cancelled it. So, it bounced on the check-cashing place. So, the warrant was out there. I had known about this for two years. I wanted to clear my name and I'm doing well and don't want any legal s***. I turned myself into the police department on my own. No one was looking for me. Just to have my life straightened out, like I'm told to do in my AA program. I paid the cash-checking fee, which was a couple hundred dollars. I was in the police station for 20 minutes and all charges have been dropped. It's a situation that's been resolved. I have nothing to hide."

Credible has been very active on social media, including his Twitter account and Facebook account posting regular video blogs discussing his sobriety and interest in returning to the business in a major way.
