Reports are coming in that former professional wrestler Michael DiBiase II was arrested today following a 12-hour standoff with police in Amarillo, TX. Michael is the eldest son of WWE Hall of Famer Ted DiBiase, and the brother of former WWE Superstar Ted Dibiase, Jr. 

The following is from local CBS affiliate News Channel 10

"At around 11:30 AM on January 23rd, 2014, Amarillo police found Dibiase hiding under a large stack of cardboard shipping boxes inside a building on the 3900 block of northwest 12th street.

It started last night when officers learned a suspect, who was wanted on a violation warrant was inside the building  that houses several businesses. Police believed at the time he may have had access to weapons. A remote controlled robot was sent in and chemical agents were used to try and draw the suspect out."

While several media outlets have confirmed that a Michael DiBiase, age 36, was arrested today, none of the reports have specifically linked him with the pro wrestling industry, or his legendary father. However, the following photo comparing the wrestler Mike DiBiase with the one caught by police today in Texas more or less confirms that it is him.
