Jim Ross comments on Jerry Lawler’s arrest

As we previously reported on the site, Jerry Lawler was arrested for domestic violence early Friday morning after he and his fiancée Lauryn McBride allegedly got into an argument that turned violent.

Jim Ross, who was Lawler’s broadcast partner in WWE for several years, commented on Lawler’s arrested in a recent blog post:

“Shocked to hear of my friend Jerry Lawler’s arrest in Memphis late Thursday night on a domestic battery charge,” Ross wrote. “King’s fiancé was also jailed on the same charge. Allegedly alcohol was a contributing factor in this matter that resulted in Jerry being suspended indefinitely from WWE as WWE has a zero tolerance policy as it relates to domestic violence issues.

“For the record, Jerry doesn’t drink whatsoever nor have I ever seen him act aggressively toward any female or anyone else for that matter. I have not spoken to Jerry recently and hope that this unfortunate matter can be resolved quickly and efficiently.”
