Memphis Police, Stripper Busted Planning to Rob Jerry Lawler
This case in Memphis has it all: Three Memphis cops were taking money to help transport prostitutes and drugs for strip clubs. An enterprising but unscrupulous stripper proposed that still more money could be made by burglarizing the home of famous wrestler Jerry Lawler. The plan was straight out of Ocean's 12, and included such features as a fake Pizza Hut Delivery person disguise, and a marked Memphis Police Car on site to monitor 911 calls. The plot failed when it turned out that several of the participants were federal informants or undercover FBI agents. The U.S. Attorney's Office seems to have thrown everything but the kitchen sink at the cops, including a charge of violating Jerry Lawler's civil rights by conspiring to deprive him of his property without due process of law.

It appears from this story that Jerry already knew this stripper, "stripper proposed that still more money could be made," which leads me to think she already extored or otherwise obtained money from Jerry?
Does anybody know what the relationship is between Jerry and the stripper?
