Legal issues, battles with drugs/alcohol and health problems [edit]1983
In 1983, Hall was charged with second degree murder after shooting a man with his own gun (after wrestling it away from him) in an altercation outside of a nightclub. According to Hall, this was done in self-defense. The charges were dropped due to lack of evidence. In a 2011 interview for ESPN, Hall admits killing the man, and says he is unable to forget the incident.[citation needed]
Hall's problems with drugs were made public in the late 1990s, and were incorporated into a controversial WCW storyline.[105] During the storyline, Hall was arrested for keying a limousine while intoxicated outside of a night club in Orlando, Florida, causing $2,000 in damages.[106]
Hall's ex-wife, Dana, attributes their 1998 divorce to Hall being unable to control his drug use.[107]
On October 10, 2008, Hall was arrested during a roast of the Iron Sheik, held at a Crowne Plaza hotel in New Jersey. A comedian, Jimmy Graham, had joked, "After The Sheik and Hacksaw Jim [Duggan] got caught snorting coke in the parking lot, his career fell faster than Owen Hart." An enraged Hall charged at Graham and knocked down a podium, then grabbed the microphone from him and yelled about how Graham was disrespecting Hart.[108] Graham described the incident on his MySpace page, claiming that he loved Hart as a wrestler and a man and that he believed Hart would have laughed at the joke. He claimed that Hall was drunk at the time of the attack.[109]
Hall was arrested on May 14, 2010, and charged with disorderly conduct and resisting a police officer. Police were called to the Hitching Post Bar in Chuluota after Hall (who had been "drinking heavily", according to the police report), "became aggressive". When they arrived, they found Hall yelling and cursing at amateur wrestling personalities and bar staff. Hall was told he was not allowed to return to the establishment. In his police statement, Hall described himself as an unemployed professional wrestler, despite having a job with TNA Wrestling (who would release him a month later).[95][110]
After his release from TNA, Hall checked into rehab, paid for by WWE.[111] Hall checked out of the rehab facility in early October 2010.[112]
Weeks after he checked into rehab, Hall had both a defibrillator and a pacemaker implanted in his chest.[113] He was hospitalized twice in 2010 for double pneumonia (affecting both lungs).[114]During this time, Hall started having seizures and was soon diagnosed with epilepsy.[115] He now has to take 11 different medications on a daily basis to treat his heart and seizure problems.[115]
Hall was the only member of The Kliq not on hand to see longtime friend Shawn Michaels inducted to the WWE Hall Of Fame. He had decided not to attend any Wrestlemania XXVII festivities due to his doubts of his ability to remain sober in that type of environment.[116]
On April 6, Hall was reportedly taken to the hospital due to a seizure.[115] Hall's representative, Geena Anac, issued a press release denying he had overdosed, saying that Hall was at home and doing fine that day. Anac said Hall was in hospital that night to be treated for extremely low blood pressure, and that Hall visits his doctor on a regular basis while recovering from double pneumonia, for blood work and checkups.[117]
On April 8, Hall showed up for his appearance at a Top Rope Promotions wrestling show in Fall River, Massachusetts, apparently intoxicated. Hall, still wearing a hospital bracelet, was helped into the ring by two men because he was struggling to walk on his own. He cut a promo and was confronted by local wrestler Gino Giovanni, who was trying to begin his scheduled match with Justin Credible. After the match between Giovanni and Credible, Hall, slurring his words, tried to goad Giovanni back into the ring.[citation needed] On April 9, TMZ reported Hall had been taken to hospital following the previous day's appearance. Hall was treated for cardiac issues and remained in the hospital for three days. According to medical reports, Hall was being treated after overdosing on both opiates and benzodiazepines.[115]
Top Rope Promotions released a statement on April 11, regarding Hall's behavior and performance. Promoter Steve Ricard said Hall had arrived the day before the event in a wheelchair with three bottles of prescription pills in his possession, and had demanded his appearance fee the next day, although he was already paid. Hall allegedly made many threats to the staff, and many demands regarding money and when he would perform. According to Ricard, Hall threatened to kill him if he screwed Hall over.[118]
Longtime friend Kevin Nash commented on Hall's recent problems, saying that he will always be there for Hall. Nash also claimed that Hall is not a drug addict, but rather that he suffers from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder[119]Eric Bischoff, another of Hall's close friends and former boss, said he wished he knew how to help him, and that he was an amazing talent and a great person, but that his "demons" were killing him.[120]
On May 8, following a worrying and confused telephone conversation with his ex-wife Dana, Hall abruptly ended the call. Dana alerted police to her concerns for his safety, and Hall allegedly had a verbal altercation with them (and her) when they attempted to enter his house. Dana said Hall was "threatening to beat them all up, doing the crotch chop thing to them, making a fool of himself, ranting and raving like a crazed mental person". Following this, Dana cut off all remaining ties with Hall.[121]
Around this time, Scott and his estranged son Cody had a brief reconciliation and Hall began mentoring him to become a professional wrestler.[115] According to Dana, this reconciliation lasted only a month.[122]
On October 20, ESPN's E:60 featured a documentary detailing Hall's experience with drugs and alcohol. It included interviews with several of Hall's family members (including his ex-wife and son, Cody), as well as several prominent figures and close friends from the wrestling industry (including Hulk Hogan, Kevin Nash, Sean Waltman, Eric Bischoff, and Stephanie McMahon).[115]
On April 6, Hall was arrested in Chuluota, Florida at around 9:31 p.m., by deputies of the Seminole County Sheriff's office, who did not make the reason for arrest public.[citation needed] The arrest was later reported to be for a domestic disturbance involving his girlfriend, Lisa Howell. Hall allegedly choked Howell while he was drunk. He was taken to a hospital in Seminole County to be medically cleared prior to being taken to a drunk tank.[123] Hall denied the choking allegations.[124]

Pelo que se diz o Hall estava novamente em rehab as custas da WWE. Ontem o DDP enviou o seguinte tweet:

@RealDDP: the eagle has landed

Está tão queimadinho...

O DDP se tivesse cabelo comprido estava igualzinho...não mudou nadinha. Mas esse tb se tornou wrestler muito mais tarde do que a vasta maioria. O Hall afundou-se muitissimo, ainda me lembro do quanto gostava de ler shows com ele, o 1-2-3 kid, el Matador...enfim...depois virei para a WCW (onde ele honestamente poderia ter estado bem pior, tendo em conta o que fez a partir daí), mas nessa altura já só ligava ao Sting. É muito complicado nos dias que correm voltar a criar uma história e um carisma daqueles...ter um gajo 1 ano sem lutar e as pessoas a ficarem completamente loucas com a mais pequena aparição onde ele dizia.....nada, absolutamente nada.
