Gregory Helms was officially booked on charges of Reckless Endangerment and DUI stemming from his motorcycle wreck several months back. He also recently spoke with Brian Fritz about his health and legal issues, here are the highlights:
"I got the go ahead from the doctor to go ahead and start putting weight on my foot. The bad news with that is I have to start getting into the legal ramifications of the accident. I got charged when I got in the accident but because I was under doctor's orders, I had to be at home. I haven't left the house unless to go to a doctor or something like that and then I had to be assisted.
"But I told the authorities that – and they're very cool with me, they know I'm not a flight risk – I told them whenever I go the OK to move, I'll come over there and we'll take care of this. I just got off the phone with my lawyer and we're going over there tomorrow to go over there and get that out of the way. So there's your exclusive before it hits the air.
"It's not something I want, I don't want to drag it out. I kind of just want to go and have it done. That's why I said as soon as I got the clearance from the doctor I called (my lawyer). It's something that's kind of been on my mind and I want to get out of the way. I've never been above facing up for any mistake I've made. I just want to go ahead and knock it out and move ahead, move forward with it. I learned a huge lesson from this."
