Hardeman County Sheriff Releases Statement on Lawler’s Death
The Hardeman County Sheriff Office has issued a statement regarding the death of former WWE Superstar Brian Christopher Lawler, who recently passed away at the age of 46. According to Sheriff John Doolen, when Lawler was taken into custody on July 6th for DUI, they had no indication that he was suicidal and thus, he was not placed under any sort of suicide watch.
Christopher was however placed in solitary confinement in a jail cell due to his “notoriety”, which obviously was due to being so famous in the Memphis area for his wrestling background and family legacy.
Officers found Christopher hanging in his cell on Saturday evening and immediately began giving him CPR. They had him transported to office in critical condition and there, it was revealed that he wasn’t going to make it. He was officially taken off of life support Sunday at approximately 4:40 PM ET after his father, Jerry Lawler, was able to come and visit him.
As previously reported, The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has opened up an investigation at the request of the State Attorney’s office. You can check out the statement below released by The Hardeman County Sheriff Office:
