Scott Hall

Arrested for Beating GF --

He'd Been 'Drinking for Days'

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.

It is so sad he is in the state he is. I hope he comes to realize how bad off he is before it is to late.

Sadly, Scott in his career and later, never really got the right kind of help he needed to stay off the bottle and stay sober. Read his Wikipedia BIO. It's really bad.

I honestly think he really just needs to be forced into a hardcore substance abuse program that can deal with his condition in a professional way that forces him to clean up his act before worse comes to worse. I'm not talking some 12 step mumbo-jumbo, I'm talking full fledged medical and psychological help in a facility he doesn't have a choice but to be at, or go to prison.

So many wrestling superstars have died from drug and alcohol abuse of some shape and form over the years it's mind-bending that nobody seems to really care till after the problem has either brought them out in ta real life problem or they end up deceased.

He's a great performer and he's got tons of talent, but unless he can get clean and stay sober, his days are numbered.

I noticed quite a few people on here talking trash about Scott but I also noticed that these same people who are running down Scott won't use their real names and if my opinion are nothing but a bunch of cowards who have no idea what he has been threw and every time he does somethimg wrong its all over the news and everybody knows about it.Just imagine every time you got drunk or fought with your girl/boy friend TMZ plastered all over the internet and TV

Seriously if Scott Hall tried to choke his girlfriend she would have needed medical attention if she had lived.If he did choke her there would be more than red marks and they say he tried to pull her out of the car.Scott is 6'7" and 280pounds and the cops said it took 2 pairs of cuffs to arrest him so i'm sure he would have killed her if he choked her in a violent rage and would have easily pulled her out of the car if he wanted.
