Jerry Lawler Comments On What Happened Leading To His Arrest
As Mike Tyson famously put it in the movie "The Hangover" - Shit Happens When You're Fucked Up.
Jerry Lawler, along with his girlfriend, were arrested this morning during a dispute following a wrestling event, ironically titled "A Night In The Slammer".
Lawler says he came back from a local wrestling event to find Lauryn drunk following a NBA Finals Game 6 party she attended with friends. Lawler said:
"When she drinks we get into a little bit of a shouting match and then she wants to leave. I was not going to let her leave in the car, because she was not in any condition to drive. She got more and more upset."
Lawler told police his fiancee scratched him in the face, threw a candle at him and kicked him in the groin. Lawler said she was drunk when she told him she knew wherethe gun was and threatened to kill herself.
Lawler was more reserved when talking to the news. He said:
"It's just an unfortunate situation. Nobody was hit and nobody was hurt. It's just something that happened as a result of drinking too much."
"It's an unfortunate situation as a result of someone drinking too much. I'm saddened by it and hope we can get past this," Lawler said when asked to give a message to his fans.
