Scott Hall

Arrested for Beating GF --

He'd Been 'Drinking for Days'

4/10/2012 11:28 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Scott Hall mug shot
Wrestling legend Scott Hall was arrested Friday after allegedly choking out his girlfriend in a drunken fit of rage -- this according to the arrest report, obtained by TMZ.

According to the report, cops were called to Scott's Florida home over a domestic disturbance in progress around 5pm. When they arrived, Scott's GF Lisa Howell informed police he had attacked her.

According to Lisa, Scott had been drinking for days and the two had gotten into some kind of argument. Lisa says she got into her car, and in a blind rage, Scott grabbed her by the throat and tried to pull her out of the driver's seat.

According to the report, police confronted Scott -- who appeared heavily intoxicated with an "unknown white secretion flowing from both sides of his mouth" -- but he denied ever getting violent.

Police observed several signs of physical injury on Lisa -- including red marks around her neck -- so they placed Scott under arrest for domestic battery.

Scott -- billed at 6'7" and 287 pounds -- required TWO sets of handcuffs.

But his problems didn't end there -- according to the report, Scott was so drunk ... the jail refused to book him ... so the arresting officer had to drag him to a nearby hospital to get medical clearance.

The physicians gave their thumbs up and Scott was brought back to the correctional facility, where he was finally booked on the domestic violence charge.

Lisa has refused to press charges. So far, it's unclear if the case will move forward.

Scott Hall hasn't been with WWE in years or even actively wrestling. He has a lot of physical problems and clearly can't get and stay sober. It's a shame that all the help he has been given is going to waste. I feel for him and have always cheered him on in his battles but he clearly has no desire to get and stay sober. He's just walking death now. Sad.

Society is all worried about NHL players with their so-called 'concussions'. Look here, this guy took a beating in the ring and it's fake! Poor guy, addicted to drugs/alcohol ... had it all, has nothing now. I loved Razor Ramon when I was a kid, that toothpick was epic! With all his head injuries, no wonder he's a walking case. Only a matter of time ... medication is keeping him alive.

Anyone that knows this guys messed up history with alcohol and drugs doesnt see this as anything unexected. When his own friends pretty much have written him off as someone who will never get better its only a matter of time he either lands in jail for a violent drug or alcohol incuded episode or straight out dead from alchol poisoning, kidney failure or overdose. Honestly I hope he gets the book thrown at him, it might be the only hope he has of not dying, prison is a great form of rehab and in this program you cant walk out.

What woman, who's seen Scott Hall drunk (he always is) would find him attractive enough to date him? She's the crazy one for thinking this wouldn't happen. She knows she better not press any charges.

Yikes, he looks like a barrel of laughs. Girlfriend better put that guy in her rear view mirror before he "allegedly" kills her. The only thing worse than a douche bag is one who drinks/drugs and is violent.

She's not very bright is she? Does she need that man that badly. He's been a violent fool for years. No wonder no one wants to book him for matches anymore .Vince washed his hands of him YEARS ago!

Isn't this the same person who had health issues last year?
I remember a wrestler called Scott Hall, who used to be part of the NWO together with Hogan and Nash and maybe other wrestlers. That seems centuries ago......
He has fallen a long, long way judging by his looks.

I used to like Scott Hall when he was with N.W.O. I even liked him when he was "Razor Ramon"....now I don't know what to think of him.

you people are calling him a loser on here but never even heard the guys life story and the **** he went threw, you want to blame someone try is father, and wcw, wcw used to send him out drunk and turned his problems into an on-air story to make money instead of getting him help when it could of made a difference. Don't judge unless you have an idea of what is fueling his problems.

He's had plenty of chances to clean himself up. Scott, do the world a favor and off yourself before you hurt someone badly.

This WOMAN yall wondering why she is with Scott? She is his dealer. She is the one supplying him with the drugs/booze.

It is time to stop making excuses for him. Scott obviously does not care about anyone.
