In an update to our earlier post on the story, there are several sources now stating that Gregory Helms did not strike the woman, named Ashley Storer, who was in the taxi with the wrestlers at about 5am. When the driver pulled over at a Shell gas station on Buttermilk Pike in Crescent Springs, KY, just outside of Erlanger, KY, Helms ran off and was chased by Matt Hardy, who was trying to get him to come back. Helms returned to the taxi but Hardy did not. No action is being taken against Hardy by the police. No assault charges are being pressed against Helms. It would also appear that Helms and Jericho were bailed out of prison after about an hour by Christian and C.M. Punk.
Kevin Gilpin of the Erlanger police, who responded to the call about the incident, said “It’s hard to say exactly how in depth this fight was. There was a disagreement while they were inside of a cab. When we got there, obviously they were out of the cab and made contact with the police, and were arrested a short time after that. We get there and they basically say Helms kind of turned into an ass and starts kind of getting physical inside the cab.”
Helms and Jericho have a court date on February 16 at Kenton District Court on their misdemeanour charges.
Meanwhile, WWE.com had posted an article on The Hurricane as its Superstar of the Day. The piece was replaced with a feature on Cody Rhodes instead.
