Muscle Relaxer Found on Arrested WWE Star

2/2/2010 6:05 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Chris Jericho's jail buddy and fellow WWE star Greg "Hurricane" Helms had a single muscle relaxer -- as in one pill -- on him when he was arrested last week for public intoxication ... this according to the police report.

According to the report, "a search of Helm's purse revealed one white round pill" which cops say was a Soma -- the generic version of the muscle relaxer Carisoprodol and a "schedule four narcotic."

Soma is no stranger to wrestling controversy. Dr. Phil Astin was recently jailed for 10 years after he was busted for prescribing Soma -- among other drugs -- in large quantities to wrestlers Chris Benoit and Michael Durham before they died.

In the report, it says Helms told cops he had a prescription for the pill but was not able to show proof of it at the time. Cops did not press charges against Helms over the single Soma pill.

WWE has yet to get back to us.

Wrestlers are on the road busting their asses 300+ nights a year. A muscle relaxer is okay to let them deal with their injuries...

Although if he has a problem with them, he needs help before he ends up like 40% of other wrestlers; with a problem.

according to the report, "a search of Helm's purse...."

Uhh...his purse?? Does the WWE stand for "Wild Women" Entertainment? Oh, I get it...it was a man-purse. Yeah...that makes it MUCH more acceptable for him to put his panties in.

Wow... a single muscle relaxer for a guy that puts his body through hell for a "fake" sport. Give me a break... why is this news? I'm sure there are a TON of people out there taking far worse than this and they're nothing putting their bodies through a tenth of the abuse that this guy does.

Soma rules! AND Shane doesn't carry a purse. It's not like he's pulling a Jeff Hardy.

Uh..Soma is not a schedule VI narcotic. It's not scheduled by the federal government. It's only scheduled in some states.

Must be a really slow week for TMZ to continue to troll us with news about a wrestler did this and that, when the situation here isn't serious at all. Does anyone care about this at all? Just admit it TMZ, you hate wrestling...
