Jerry Lawler Speaks Out on Arrest From Jail, Blames Incident on His Girlfriend’s Intoxication

As noted, WWE Hall of Famer Jerry Lawler was arrested this morning on domestic violence charges and was subsequently suspended by WWE.

WMC Action News 5 interviewed Lawler while he was in jail, and the 66 year old Smackdown announcer claims he had returned home from a wrestling event which was “ironically [titled] A Night At The Slammer.” He said that his fiancee McBride, 27, returned home a little later intoxicated from a friend’s house after watching Game 6 of the NBA Finals.

“We got into a little bit of a shouting match and then she wanted to leave,” Lawler said. “I was not going to let her leave in the car, because she was just not in any condition to drive. She got more and more upset, she called 9-1-1 and scratched my face in the process. The police came in and said that this was a domestic dispute and that they were ‘going to have to take both of you guys downtown’.

“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,” Lawler said.

Lawler denied reports that he hit McBride in the head and pushed her against the stove. Lawler confirmed that he had an unloaded gun and McBride was threatening to kill herself. He said that she got the gun and threw it to him. He said that he might have put the gun on the counter, but he didn’t tell her to kill herself.

He said that he only has issues with McBride when she drinks, and said that she had an incident last week while she was intoxicated at the CMA Awards and got into a fist fight with her aunt.

“It’s an unfortunate situation as a result of somebody drinking too much. I’m saddened by it and hope we can get past this,” Lawler said.
