WWE star Jeff Hardy was arrested on Saturday evening 3/10 for driving while impaired in Concord, North Carolina, has confirmed.

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.

The former WWE champion has been out of action since undergoing surgery for a torn labrum and a torn rotator cuff in September 2017.  He has been slated to head to the WWE Performance Center later this month to work out in the ring in advance of his return to action.

With Jeff out of action, hs brother Matt Hardy has been feuding with Bray Wyatt.  WWE filmed the latest chapter of that feud, Ultimate Deletion, on the Hardy compound this past Friday 3/9.  There is no word yet whether Jeff Hardy was slated to (or did) appear in any fashion during the filming.

Obviously, the story is developing, and we will have more details as they emerge.

Note: The posting originally listed the location of arrest as Cameron County, where Jeff Hardy resides.  It was actually Concord, NC.  We have amended the story to correct the error.
