Pro wrestler Ric Flair hospitalized, friends ask for prayer

Pro wrestler Ric Flair is battling some health issues and is in need of prayer, his close friends say.

Melinda Morris Zanoni, CEO of Legacy Talent and Entertainment, represents "The Nature Boy" and has been keeping fans updated.

Flair's career highlights include his induction as an honorary Clayton County sheriff's deputy.

Clayton Sheriff Victor Hill, who likes conferring deputy status upon celebrities or just posing for photos with them, announced the news in typically ebullient style:

“Based on his vast experience in Vice related matters, The Wheeling, Dealing, Girlfriend Stealing, Limousine Riding, and Private Jet Flying Ric Flair was sworn in today as an Honorary Deputy assigned to The Vice Squad by ‘THE CRIME FIGHTER!’ WOOO!”
