WWE Star Chris Jericho

Arrested in Kentucky

1/28/2010 2:48 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

WWE wrestler Chris Jericho was arrested at a gas station in Kentucky early Wednesday morning after cops say he and a fellow wrestler were both "extremely intoxicated" in public.

Chris Jerico mug shot
39-year-old Jericho was taken into custody in Kenton County around 5 AM for "alcohol intoxication in a public place."

Jericho -- who was arrested along with fellow wrestler Greg "Hurricane" Helms -- was forced to smile for cop cam -- and TMZ obtained the mug shots.

Jericho and Helms were released on $120 bond -- each ... no that's not a typo.

UPDATE 10:00 AM EST: Cops say they responded to the gas station in Crescent Springs after receiving a complaint about two men fighting in a cab.

When cops arrived to the scene, they located Jericho and Helms, who were "manifestly under the influence of an alcoholic beverage." Both men were then arrested -- but cops say the wrestlers were cooperative with police.

Crescent Springs is roughly 20 miles from Cincinnati, where the two men participated in a WWE event on Tuesday night. .

Makes me laugh to read people comments about "thanks for wasting my bandwidth" and the such. It's not TMZ who is wasting the bandwidth...it's your fault for reading something you're not interested in.

Know what the difference between a Baptist and a Methodist is? A Methodist will wave at you in the liquor store, LOL! Hey at least these guys were not out driving or anything. Sounds like they were just having some fun.

Jericho was just celebrating winning back-to-back "Wrestler of the Year" awards. That cop needed a Code Breaker for hassling them.
