-- MTV.com has an article detailing the Wednesday morning arrests of Chris Jericho and Gregory Helms for public intoxication. MTV notes that Jericho's metal band Fozzy released their fourth album, Chasing the Grail this week. In an interview with MTV News, Jericho described the album as "surprisingly mature." Several other music websites have picked up on the Jericho arrest story through his involvement in Fozzy.
-- OK Magazine has an interview with Chris Jericho, discussing his careers as a musician and wrestler. He talks about his influences and favorites in music (Beatles, Van Halen) and wrestling (Ricky Steamboat, Hulk Hogan), mentions Steve Austin used to come to Fozzy shows, and even lists the items in his refrigerator.

-- The feeling in WWE is that the Helms incident is not a surprise, and that Jericho got caught in the middle. One wrestler was quoted as saying that Jericho "should have run with Matt."
