In a report published on CommercialAppeal.com, it was noted today that all charges have been dropped against WWE Hall of Famer Jerry “The King” Lawler and his fiancee, Lauryn McBride.
On Friday morning, the pair appeared in court following their arrest in June over domestic assault charges. Lawler contended that McBride had scratched him and kicked him in the groin in an intoxicated state, then grabbed a gun and threatened to kill herself. McBride contended that Lawler held her against a counter, then hit her in the head and pushed her against the stove before grabbing a gun and telling her to kill herself. Officers could not determine a primary aggressor, so both were arrested.
Lawler’s attorney, Ted Hansom, spoke to media following the hearing. He called the incident “a big misunderstanding and won’t happen again. We are happy with the outcome.”
WWE suspended Lawler indefinitely in light of the incident based on their “zero tolerance” policy on domestic violence, but there is no word if he will be returning to work now that the charges have been dropped.
