Jim Ross weighed in on the arrest of his friend and longtime broadcast Jerry Lawler in a new blog post on his official website. Below is an excerpt:
Shocked to hear of my friend Jerry Lawler's arrest in Memphis late Thursday night on a domestic battery charge. 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.
