WWE’s Gregory Helms was served with a criminal summons ordering him to appear in court on July 8th to answer charges of assault and battery. The charges were brought against the former WWE Cruiserweight champion by Dustin Narron, who was arrested on May 6th following a fight where he punched Helms at the N&N Sports Bar during an argument over a pool table. Helms was not taken into custody at that time.
According to local media reports earlier this month, Helms was in the midst of an argument with one of Narron’s friends over a pool game when Narron “balled his fist” and struck the former WWE Cruiserweight champion. A scuffle did ensue but was quickly broken up. Narron was released after posting $500 bond. Lt. Keith Powell told the Raleigh News & Observer at the time that Helms was not arrested because he “did not strike back.”
