According to the report, the title went missing while he was eating dinner inside a Longhorn Steakhouse at 2400 North Monroe Street. This led to the police being called and an investigation was launched.
The report lists the crime as grand theft and Jericho as the victim – Christopher “Jericho” Irvine:
“The victim reported the theft of his championship wrestling belt while he was eating inside Longhorn Steakhouse. The victim stated he arrived at the Millionaire Club Airport Terminal and placed the belt inside his rented limousine. The limo driver shuttled the victim to Longhorn for dinner. The victim remained at Longhorn while the limo driver returned to the airport. The victim had taken the wrong luggage from the airport and the driver took it back to the terminal. When the driver picked up the victim from the restaurant, the belt was missing. Responding officers searched the limo and airport for the belt without success. On-call CID was consulted, and forensics responded to the scene.”
The Tallahassee (Fla.) Police Department confirmed the news to ESPN on Tuesday. A spokesperson could not comment further because it is an open investigation. When a request for a comment was placed to AEW, it was not immediately returned.
