Jeff Hardy Arrested for DWI

It’s been almost 7 months since the WWE Universe has seen Jeff Hardy. During that time, Hardy has been recovering  from major shoulder surgery at home. Unfortunately, Hardy’s return has hit an unexpected hiccup.

Jeff Hardy was arrested For DWI in North Carolina on Saturday night. Hardy crashed his car into a guard rail and spun back into the lane. Upon arrival, the Cabarrus County police department issued Hardy a breathalyzer. Hardy blew a .25, which is three times the legal limit.

Hardy was brought in and released one hour later. Hardy’s license has been revoked for 30 days and has a court date in April.

As of now, this arrest may not have an effect on his WWE return. But, that could change at any time, especially with Hardy’s bad history with the law.


As a huge Jeff Hardy fan, this is incredibly disheartening. I really thought that at 40 years of age and with almost 7 years of sobriety under his belt that he had this under control. Obviously, I was wrong.

While there’s never a good time to have a relapse, the timing of this couldn’t be worse. Hardy was just cleared by his surgeon to return to the ring. Also, with Wrestlemania right around the corner, Hardy was in a great position to do something important on the show. This arrest puts that in question.

Other than that, I feel awful for Jeff. I’m sure no one feels worse about this whole situation than him. Jeff Hardy is a really nice guy with a wife and two young daughters. It’s awful that this happened, but now I’m hoping more than anything that this is only a one time deal.
