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. .

What a bunch of Idiots. Kids look up to these guys for a reason. I have yet to figure out that reason. But I guess it has something to do with the fact that they are famous and they get drunk and all I can wonder is if they were driving while intoxicated.

This would be the perfect example of God's forgiveness... You people who judge him are NO different!! no sin is worse than any other. We don't know if he's repented or not, so keep your negativity to yourself!.. Christians do far WORSE things than this! Every single person on this earth makes mistakes.. I'm a believer and I pray that Mr. Irvine asked Christ for his forgiveness. In Christ.. Leats-a-roo

"That's a typical born again christian hypocrite for you."

So Christians can't make mistakes? You act like you're Mother Teresa. The difference is he's not habitually doing these sorts of things, and most likely asked for forgiveness after the fact.
