JEFF HARDY SLATED FOR COURT THIS THURSDAY IN NORTH CAROLINA

By Mike Johnson on 2019-12-03 14:49:00

WWE star Jeff Hardy is slated for a court appearance in Moore County Court in North Carolina to face charges of Driving While Impaired on Friday morning 12/5.  This hearing replaces Hardy's original hearing on 11/7, which was postponed as Hardy was attending to his health, we are told.

Hardy was arrested the evening of Thursday 10/3 in Moore County, North Carolina.    The police report for the arrest notes that authorities received a tip about a careless driver around 8:40 PM that evening.   Authorities located Hardy's car in front of a liquor store and he emerged carrying a case of beer.  Authorities followed the car and pulled him over after they "observed him weaving badly in his lane."

Hardy had "what seemed to be dried blood on his nose", according to the police report and told officers that he and his wife "got into a fight."

The police report stated that Hardy admitted to having two shots of vodka and admitted to being impaired.  Hardy failed a field sobriety test and according to the report, he was "was uncooperative when asked for a breathalyzer or blood sample."  A judge signed off on a search warrant, allowing officers to extract a blood sample from Hardy.

Hardy's driver's license has been revoked for at least 30 days pending his hearing.

Hardy had not been on the road with WWE as he was recovering from a leg injury but was subsequently pulled from the 2019 Ringsidefest signing.  We are told WWE has worked with Hardy to assist him personally since his arrest and hope he will return to perform for the company when he is healthy and cleared to return medically.
