Jerry Lawler and his fiancee Lauryn McBride were arrested following an altercation at their home in Memphis, Tennessee on Friday morning. WREG-TV. McBride claims Lawler struck her in the head and pushed her against a stove. She also claims that Lawler brought an unloaded pistol into their kitchen, set it down, and told her to kill herself. Lawler claims McBride scratched him in the face, threw a candle at him, and kicked him in the groin. He also claims that she was intoxicated and brought the pistol into the kitchen.
Powell’s POV: WWE has suspended Lawler and issued the following statement to the TV station: “WWE has zero tolerance for matters involving domestic violence, and per our policy, Jerry Lawler has been suspended indefinitely following his arrest.” This is obviously an ugly situation with Lawler and McBride telling conflicting stories.
