WWE color commentator Jerry Lawler and his girlfriend Lauryn McBride were arrested on domestic violence charges early Friday morning by the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office in Memphis, Tenn.

According to a report from WREG, the incident occurred at Lawler’s home. More from the affidavit:

McBride claims Lawler struck her in the head and pushed her against a stove while Lawler claims McBride scratched him in the face, threw a candle at him and kicked him in the groin.

McBride also alleged that Lawler got an unloaded pistol, put it on the kitchen counter and told her to kill herself.

Lawler says McBride was intoxicated and claims McBride is the one who brought the pistol into the kitchen.


Lawler and McBride were both booked for domestic assault causing bodily harm; both will be due in court on June 20. A police report wasn’t immediately available because a spokesperson at the Sheriff’s Office wanted Deadspin to mail them a letter.

WWE announced that Lawler has been suspended indefinitely.
