WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has a long, storied history with his former broadcast partner Jerry "The King" Lawler, who was arrested this morning on domestic violence charges.

In Ross' latest blog post, he talked about the unfortunate incident that landed Lawler in jail. Ross mentioned that he hasn't spoken to Lawler of late.

"Shocked to hear of my friend Jerry Lawler's arrest in Memphis late Thursday night on a domestic battery charge. King's fiancée was also jailed on the same charge. Allegedly alcohol was a contributing factor in this matter that resulted in Jerry being suspended indefinitely from WWE as WWE has a zero tolerance policy as it relates to domestic violence issues. For the record, Jerry doesn't drink whatsoever nor have I ever seen him act aggressively toward any female or anyone else for that matter. I have not spoken to Jerry recently and hope that this unfortunate matter can be resolved quickly and efficiently," Ross said.

Lawler, who commented on the matter from jail, was also suspended by the WWE for the charges.
