The son of WWE Hall of Famer Ted DiBiase was arrested early on Jan. 23 after a long standoff with Amarillo Police and SWAT teams. Mike DiBiase was wanted for a parole violation and officers received information that he was inside the building.

Police said DiBiase was seen by an employee attempting to break through a wall between businesses. Attempts to make contact with the suspect were unsuccessful as officers learned the suspect may have access to weapons. Knowing the escalated danger of the situation, SWAT negotiators were brought in to assist with the situation.

A mobilized remote control robot made its way through the building in an attempt to locate the subject.

DiBiase was eventually arrested after a SWAT team entered the building and used chemical agents in an attempt to force him out. It was noted that DiBiase was hiding under a pile of cardboard boxes. SWAT officers used a K-9, remote controlled robots and chemical agents to aid in their search for DiBiase.

“Please pray for my oldest son Mike. He’s been arrested again and is in jail. Pray that God would break his pride and he would grow up,” Ted DiBiase wrote about his son.

“This was probably one of the most difficult building searches I have ever seen the guys on the swat team take on, just from my point of view. It was a large building that was subdivided into smaller areas, there were small offices that had false roofs inside, there were a large number of boxes and shipping containers, there was a lot of furniture, there were small rooms,” Sgt. Brent Barbee with The Amarillo Police Department said in a statement.

Ted Dibiase’s son was booked on an original conviction stemming from a tampering with/destruction of evidence charge and a charge of hindering apprehension.
