WWE's Statement On Jeff Hardy's Arrest

WWE's Statement On Jeff Hardy's Arrest

Raj Giri of WrestlingINC reports that Hardy was arrested in Concord, NC and that the accident happened on Concord Parkway South. Concord is in Cabarrus County.

Jeff Hardy's return to the WWE universe might have hit a snag after reports surfaced that Hardy was arrested Saturday for driving while impaired in Concord, North Carolina, where he crashed his Cadillac into a guard rail, CBS Sports reported.

WWE have finally spoken up about the incident and have released a statement about Hardy's arrest.

The report says the vehicle caused an estimated $5,000 (£3,602) in damages to the guardrail, which was owned by the North Carolina Department of Transportation, and around $8,000 (£5,764) worth of damage to his 2016 Cadillac CTS-V.

Jeff was reportedly tested for alcohol, but as of this writing results for the test are still pending. He is scheduled to appear in court on April 16th in Cabarrus County.

Hardy had reportedly been given the OK to get back into the ring following surgery he had a year ago.

Hardy's struggles with his vices are well documented, but this marks his first spot of legal trouble since September 2011, when he served a 10-day jail sentence of trafficking controlled prescription pills and the possession of anabolic steroids.

Hardy has been out of action since September 2017 after undergoing surgery to fix torn ligaments in his shoulder.

Hardy's recovery timetable from his shoulder injury has him projected to return soon and the pending match at the Hardy Compound between Bray Wyatt and "Woken" Matt Hardy could have had an appearance by Jeff returning as Brother Nero, but in light of current events, the company may not be so quick to bring him back. "We are investigating the matter and awaiting information from local law enforcement officials".
