According to Prowrestling.net, former TNA star (I’ve made this joke before, because he’s trashy like TNA, M I RITE) Scott Hall was arrested Friday in Florida for allegedly choking out his girlfriend, Lisa Howell. The full story at TMZ.com says police were dispatched to Hall’s residence on a domestic disturbance call. When they arrived, Howell claimed Hall had been drinking for days (which we at Stunt Granny doubt), and when Howell tried to drive away, Hall reached into the car, choked Howell and pulled her out of the car. (Anonymous witnesses do not claim he did that overhead toss move from his Razor Ramon days.) Hall is denying there was physical abuse, which means the only explanation for the red hand marks around Howell’s neck is that she confused a serial killer for a scarf, or something. And as for the “drinking for days” part, Hall was reportedly so drunk that he was secreted a strange white liquid from the corners of his mouth and was denied booking into the jail and instead sent to a medical facility to detox.
I mean, does the fun ever stop? It’s not enough that WWE has spent plenty of money sending Hall to rehab, and that ESPN aired his entire dirty wardrobe on “E:60.” I guess I’m going to have to make my personal plea to Scott himself: Scott, listen to me. One of the greatest things posted to YouTube in the past two years has been “Last Call With Scott Hall,” where you and an aging Larry Zbyszko watch old wrestling matches and provide insightful and funny alternate commentary. Please, please keep in mind that you cannot have Flip cameras in jail, and they’re too big to confiscate them where the sun doesn’t shine. Yes, drinking is fun, you make lots of new friends that way and no one ever gets hurt, but for the sake of your Internet series, cut the booze! -Eric
