Jeff Hardy was arrested Saturday, March 10th near his home in North Carolina for Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol. Hardy allegedly ran his car off the road.
Here’s more via PWInsider:
Hardy, 40-years old, was arrested at 10:20 PM on 3/10 at 4545 Concord Pkwy South, according to the Cabarrus County Sherriff’s Office. He was released a little over an hour later at 11:24 PM. No details have been released yet on the circumstances leading to the arrest.
Hardy has also been hit with a 30 day pretrial revocation of his driver’s licence, which means that currently, he cannot legally drive. That is a normal procedure in the State following an arrest of that nature. He is slated to appear in Cabarrus County Court on 4/16 in regard to his arrest.
Wrestling Inc. has a further breakdown of the incident
The accident occurred around 8:11 pm on Concord Parkway. Hardy ran off the roadway and struck a guardrail, which caused his car to spin out into the middle of the right northbound lane.
We now have more info on Hardy’s condition and those surrounding the accident and arrest via WSOC:
WWE wrestler Jeff Hardy is charged with DWI in Cabarrus County after he was in a single-vehicle crash on Concord Parkway Saturday.
According to an arrest report obtained by Channel 9, Hardy registered a .25 on a breathalyzer test. The legal limit in NC is .08.
Hardy now has a court date in mid-April to answer the charge.
Beyond a tepid statement from WWE and an in-character one from his brother Matt, not much else is known about how WWE will treat this. Judging from experience, Hardy will not be punished by WWE. I am OK with this. He didn’t physically harm anyone apart from perhaps himself.
Some people want WWE to be tough on crime, but punishing people for being addicts only pushes people further into addiction. Jeff already knows he screwed up and will seek help that WWE and others will offer. That is enough.
