Fozzy Frontman Chris Jericho Arrested in Kentucky
While details are scarce, it appears Fozzy frontman and WWE wrestler Chris Jericho was arrested early Wednesday morning at a gas station in Kentucky. TMZ.com reports that Jericho was detained by police along with another pro wrestler and was charged with being “extremely intoxicated” in public.
Reports claim the 39-year-old Jericho was taken into custody in Kenton County around 5 AM for “alcohol intoxication in a public place.” He was collared along with Greg ‘Hurricane’ Helms, who also wrestles with the ECW as a mock superhero. Both Jericho and Helms were in the area after filming an episode of ‘Friday Night Smackdown’ Tuesday night in Cincinnati.
Both wrestlers were released on $120 bond.
Fozzy’s new album, ‘Chasing the Grail, is streaming in its entirety at AOL Music. The band also features Stuck Mojo‘s Rich ‘The Duke’ Ward. The record was released on Jan. 19, and Fozzy will be in New York on Jan. 29 to sign copies of the disc at J&R Music World at 23 Park Row.
No other information was available on Jericho’s arrest.
