Jeff Hardy of AEW has been summoned to court on Tuesday, August 2, to be arraigned on DUI-related charges stemming from his most recent arrest.
The Charismatic Enigma was detained following a traffic stop on Florida’s Interstate 95 in DeLand. Police had to pull their firearms on Hardy in the dash-cam footage when the actor refused to cooperate. The video has repeatedly resurfaced on many social media platforms, especially on YouTube.
Regarding Jeff Hardy’s troublesome life outside of the ring, the wrestler was detained in 2009 on suspicion of possessing anabolic steroids and trafficking in prohibited prescription drugs. The wrestler received a sentence of 10 days in jail, 30 months of probation, and a $100k fine on September 8, 2011. He was incarcerated from October 3 to October 13, 2011. Hardy was detained for public intoxication in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, on July 13, 2019. Then, on October 3, 2019, Hardy was detained in Moore County, North Carolina, and accused of driving while intoxicated.
Jeff Hardy was detained twice in the course of three months in 2019. The first was for public intoxication in July, and the second was for impaired driving in October. He was detained for narcotics trafficking in 2011 and given a 10-day jail term.
AEW return not happening very soon.
The suspension of Jeff Hardy by AEW President Tony Khan following his DUI arrest has left the wrestling community still trying to process what happened. According to a statement from Khan, Hardy could only join AEW after finishing treatment and maintaining his sobriety for an unspecified period of time.
Jeff is doing considerably better, according to Khan. “I believe Jeff is receiving treatment. I don’t want to share too much information because it is his business, but I want him to know that I am here for him.”
The terrible arrest of Jeff Hardy on June 13 stunned and distressed fans equally. According to recent sources, the celebrity may go to jail because of the seriousness of his allegations and his present plea.
Hardy waived arraignment when he submitted a written plea of not guilty, so it’s uncertain if he’ll actually show up in court on August 2. Hardy’s arraignment was supposed to take place on July 5; however, the date passed without the hearing taking place, therefore another date had to be set.
Hardy is now on extended leave from AEW. He allegedly checked into rehab on June 21. He hasn’t appeared in any AEW programming since competing at Double or Nothing 2022, although Matt Hardy, Jeff’s brother, confronted Christian Cage on the episode of “AEW Dynamite” airing on July 6. You’re starting to make your brother sound like the sober one, Cage sneered at Matt.
The AEW star is accused of having committed a third DUI in ten years, which is a felony in the state of Florida. Hardy is accused of violating his driver’s licence restrictions as well as driving when his licence is suspended or revoked. According to reports, the former WWE Champion could spend up to five years in jail.
After WWE, Jeff Hardy joined after his brother Matt Hardy to AEW. There were some complications at the end of his contract with WWE before leaving. When Jeff’s 90-day non-compete clause with WWE ended, he was allowed to join his brother in AEW. Jeff did just that on the March 9 episode of Dynamite by helping Matt. The 44-year-old hasn’t indicated that he is close to retiring, but Jeff seemed content to be taking part in another Hardy Boyz run in AEW.
But now this can be a blow to all the fans of the Extreme Enigma, due to him being close to end his career way too soon than planned.
