What Happened To Tuff Hedeman? Was The Rodeo Arrested? Wife and Net Worth

American cowboy Tuff Hedeman is a legendary bull rider. He has won three PRCA Bull Riding championships and a PBR Championship.

Hedeman managed to ride the Charbray Bull with a 95-point ride in 1993, winning the National Finals Rodeo. In the later years of his riding career, he sustained a neck injury that unfortunately forced him to retire. 

After he departed from the sports, Hedeman served as the President of the PBR and Ambassador of Championship Bull Riding (CBR). In 2018, he started his organization called the Tuff Hedeman Bull Riding Tour.

What Happened To Tuff Hedeman? Was The Rodeo Arrested? 

Tuff Hedeman may have been detained, according to numerous old social media posts.

On August 28, 2019, the Beadle County State’s Attorney’s Office posted on Facebook, claiming the rodeo got arrested on a Bench Warrant. The document was printed in Clark County, Nevada.

According to Google, a judge may order a person’s arrest by issuing a bench warrant. Because the judge gives the warrant while seated “on the bench” in the courtroom, it is known as a “bench” warrant.

When a bench warrant is issued, it typically has a bail sum. But, the social media post has not provided details regarding Hedeman’s reason for arrest or the sum he paid as a fine. Thus, it is challenging to say the reason the rodeo got arrested. 

Who Is Tuff Hedeman’s Wife?

Tuff Hedeman has been married to Tracy Stepp since 1986. The couple shares four children; his sons are Lane, Trevor, Ryker, and Ripp.

According to The Oklahoman, Hedeman met Stepp during his college days at Oklahoma State. Two began dating during the 1984 NFR in Oklahoma City, and the year they married, Tuff won his first PRCA world champion title.

Hedeman says: ‘Because whenever I’m home, I want to be able to pick up my kids and give them a hug,” he said. “I want to go out and rope with Tracy.’

At present, Hedeman resides on his ranch in Morgan Mill, Texas. He spent most of his time at team roping and bull riding events.

However, the rodeo is not active on any famous social networking website like Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter.
