Court records showed domestic violence charges have been dropped against wrestler Jerry Lawler and his fiancee in Memphis.

Shelby County General Sessions Court records posted online showed prosecutors decided not to pursue domestic assault charges against the 66-year-old Lawler and his 27-year-old bride-to-be Lauryn McBride. The charges were dismissed Friday.

A judge had ordered the couple to stay away from one another after their arrests in June at Lawler's east Memphis home. Police records said they got into an argument that turned violent, but police could not determine a primary aggressor.

According to The Commercial Appeal, Lawler's attorney Ted Hansom said the incident was "a big misunderstanding and won't happen again. We are happy with the outcome."
