The son of WWE Hall of Famer Mr. Wonderful has been arrested after leading Georgia police on a high speed chase.
Fayetteville resident Paul Parlette Orndorff III, 51, was taken into custody Thursday following a pursuit that began when Orndorff sped off from an attempted traffic stop, police say. During the course of the chase, Orndorff led pursuing officers from Peachtree City to Senoi before looping back, according to his arrest affidavit. By the time police boxed him in at an apartment complex, officers from several agencies had become involved in the chase.
Orndorff was booked on a number of charges, including felony fleeing and eluding police, violation of the Georgia Controlled Substances Act and several traffic violations, according to Peachtree City Police Lt. Matt Myers.
Orndorff is the son of Paul Orndorff Jr., a Tampa native who wrestled under the name “Mr. Wonderful.”
