Jerry the King Lawler Suspended For Domestic Violence Incident Against 27-Year-Old GF

New York Comic-Con 2015 - Day 2

The legend that is WWE announcer Jerry the King Lawler is in some hot water with his employer as well as authorities after he was arrested for a domestic violence incident against his 27-year-old girlfriend. Keep in mind, Jerry the King Lawler is 66-years-old.  That’s almost a 40 year difference.

Via News 3 of Memphis:

“Lawler, 66, and McBride, 27, got into an argument that reportedly started after Lawler accused McBride of lying about where she had been earlier in the night. McBride claims Lawler held her against a counter in the couple’s kitchen during the alleged argument, hit her in the head, and placed a gun on the counter and told her to “go ahead and kill yourself.” However, Lawler claims McBride scratched him, threw a candle in his direction, and kicked him in the groin. He also claims McBride was intoxicated during the incident and was the one who brought a gun into the kitchen and threatened to kill herself.”

WWE released a statement:

“MEMPHIS, Tenn. — 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.”
