Fly on the Wall 1426 

A naked guy and Jerry Lawler

Naked City

If you're going down, you might as well go down swinging. Am I right?

Derrick Thomas, arrested in Jonesboro, Arkansas, last month for indecent exposure and "enjoying himself," decided to expose himself again — this time in Judge Keith Blackman's courtroom.

According to news reports, Thomas was granted permission to leave the courtroom for a drink of water. He returned — running by all accounts — with his shirt off, his pants around his ankles, and his arms in the air.

"Court is back in session," Thomas was quoted as saying.

Thomas laughed as three police officers forced his pants up and removed him from the courtroom. Then he added something to the effect of "They will put [on my] tombstone that [I] was the one that got naked in the courtroom."

Everybody has a bucket list, apparently.

Dethroned?

Jerry Lawler, the 66-year-old King of Memphis wrasslin', has been suspended indefinitely from the WWE pending the outcome of a domestic assault arrest. Lawler and his 27-year-old fiancée, Lauryn McBride, were both taken into custody following a violent encounter at Lawler's East Memphis residence last week. According to reports, fire was thrown. Well, candle anyway. Lawler, whose feud with Andy Kaufman helped to popularize professional sports entertainment (aka wrasslin'), recently opened a club on Beale Street.
