TNA’s Hector Garza Released From Jail

Ryan Clark


TNA star Hector Garza was freed without bail yesterday as the judge presiding over his case ruled that the nine days he had been incarcerated covered the set bail of $1000. Garza’s counsel, Thomas Mora, is petitioning to have Garza allowed to travel to Orlando, Florida for the Final Resolution PPV and returning to Houston immediately afterwards. If that isn’t allowed by the court, Garza is expected to be deported out of the country on Friday. Should he be deported before the charges are resolved, it is expected that it will be some time before he is allowed to work in the United States again.

Garza was arrested 1/3 in Houston, Texas on charges of possession of a controlled substance, which turned out to be anabolic steroids Primobolan and Deca-Durabolin. Garza was carrying two bottles, containing 28 grams. When asked by immigration agents if he was carrying any medication, Garza indicated that he was and presented the bottles in question. Since he was not carrying a prescription and the medication was not in the original packaging, the call was made to put Garza into custody. Our expert in Mexico, Cesar Cadena noted that in Mexico, medication is supposed to be sold in the original packaging, so someone had to make the effort in changing it over to different bottles.

Garza was pulled from his scheduled TNA PPV match this Sunday at Final Resolution in Orlando, Florida and replace with Jeff Hardy. Should he be deported, he was scheduled to compete in Arena Mexico on 1/21 in Mexico City at a tournament of second generation wrestlers, so he may appear at that event.
