Jeff Hardy Arrest: WWE Superstar Booked for DWI


Hardy, who once pleaded guilty after a 2009 arrest on drug charges, is now out on bail, and he is scheduled for a court date on April 16. Authorities in Concord, North Carolina booked him after he ran his vehicle off the roadway, according to the arrest report obtained by CBS Sports. Tests administered at the site of the accident indicated that Hardy had a blood alcohol content of.25, three times the state's legal limit of.08. Hardy was arrested in 2009 in his home in Cameron, the Charlotte Observer reports, and was incarcerated in 2009 for drug possession. Hardy caused approximately $8,000 of damage to his auto and $5,000 of damage to the guardrail.

Hardy is also a member of the band PeroxWhy?Gen, which has released two studio albums.

The 40-year-old has been off WWE television since September as he recovers from a shoulder injury.

Matt and Jeff Hardy's return to the WWE will certainly go down as one of the greatest moments in WrestleMania history and full credits to all the WWE officials who kept the return a secret, making it a huge success.

Violations could include the use of banned steroids, illegal drugs, or risky health conditions, such as concussions or cardiac issues.

Drunk driving is not expressly prohibited under the WWE Wellness code.

WWE filmed The Ultimate Deletion with brother Matt Hardy and Bray Wyatt at the Hardy Compound last week.

It's unclear how the arrest will impact his status with the WWE, but a rep for the company told ProWrestlingSheet, "Jeff Hardy is responsible for his own personal actions".
