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. .

I want to know why the Kenton County Jail released these guys so soon after arrest. It is typical for the locals to spend the night in jail to dry out. If they were so intoxicated why were they released so soon?

Jehico is so hot.. And actually not the ass he plays on TV. I live in Tampa and have met him many times, a real gentleman.
He was walking from a bar in Kentucky to his hotel room and stopped a the gas station, the cop called them over and smelled alcohol on their breaths an areested them for be drunk in public (not disordally or Dui) A BS charge if you ask me look at the bail and the fact they were only in jail 50 minutes.

1st of all they were not driving they were in a cab so I commend them for not acting like all these other famous jerkoffs driving 90 MPH and drunk!!!!
2nd they were drunk play fighting and cooperated with police so they didn't get special treatment they barely committed a crime thats why they were released

I could see if they'd been drinking and driving; but no, they were taking a cab after they'd been out partying. Why arrest them for public intoxication? Public intoxication laws are unrealistic.

Crescent Springs is not 20 miles from Cincinnati. It's literally less than 10 minutes away, 5 minutes with no traffic. The jail they were taken to has a view of Cincinnati's skyline. Check your maps

These laws are getting out hand. These guys are smashed out of their heads, but smart enough and responsible enough to take a taxi, and THEY'RE ARRESTED FOR BEING DRUNK IN PUBLIC? COME ON! I don't watch rasslin' and don't particularly care for any of these guys, but to arrest them for public drunkenness when they took a taxi is incomprehensible. Not cool. Yes, okay someone allegedly smacked a woman, that's not cool. But Jericho and the other guy didn't do anything except GET OUT OF A CAB due to an incident THEY DIDN'T CAUSE (from the report). The probably were arrested so the officers could get some free autographs down at the station.
