WWE has issued an update on the (storyline, obviously) arrests of Lana and Bobby Lashley on Monday Night Raw last night.
Lana and Lashley were both arrested despite Rusev being the one that broke a restraining order to enter the arena and attack Lashley.
WWE.com has since released the following:
WWE.com has learned that Bobby Lashley and Lana have been released from a Nashville jail. Both Superstars have been reached out to for comment.
After Rusev defied the restraining order placed against him and attacked Lashley on Monday Night Raw, the officer on hand decided to give The Bulgarian Brute a pass based on his knowledge of the ongoing situation. The officer did, however, cuff Lashley after The All Mighty shoulder-checked him while exiting, and Lana was next after she open-palm slapped Nashville’s finest on the ramp.
UPDATE – 11:00 AM ET
Statement from Lana
“How can I be arrested by an off-duty police officer, hired by me, to protect myself?”
UPDATE – 11:30 AM ET
Statement from Bobby Lashley
“I’ve been advised by attorneys to not speak about the case because it could involve future litigation.”

That definitely sounds like something Lashley would say.
