Home - Entertainment - WWE Hall of Famer Jerry ‘The King’ Lawler arrested; suspended by WWE

WWE Hall of Famer Jerry Lawler was arrested this morning and has been suspended by World Wrestling Entertainment.

WWE.com said: “Jerry Lawler was arrested at his home Friday morning by the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office in Memphis, Tenn.

“According to a police report, Lawler and his girlfriend, Lauryn McBride, were taken into custody and booked on alleged charges of domestic assault—bodily harm, a misdemeanor.

“WWE has zero tolerance for matters involving domestic violence, and per our policy, Jerry Lawler has been suspended indefinitely following his arrest.”

WFSB.com is reporting the couple got into an argument that turned violent and involved a gun. McBride told police that Lawler held her against the kitchen counter, hit her in the head, pushed her against a stove, then put a gun on the kitchen counter and told her to kill herself.

Lawler told police the argument started when Lauryn lied about where she had been. Lawler said McBride scratched him in the face, threw a candle at him and kicked him in the groin. He also claimed she was drunk and threatening to kill herself.

Both were arrested when police were unable to determine who started the problems. They were booked into the Shelby County jail around 1am today.
