Yesterday we learned that Jeff Hardy had been arrested for drunk driving and would be brought before a judge for the third time in ten years for having failed a breathalyzer test.
Today we learn that Jeff Hardy was released from prison on June 13 at 7:07 p.m. local time (1H01 Paris time) thanks to a surety who paid the $3,500 bond that was needed to get him out of his cell. Which gives him the option to leave Volusia County, Florida and return home (and maybe even go to AEW Dynamite if he still has a place on the map).
We also learn via the PWInsider that his trial before the judge which was scheduled for Tuesday during the day is now marked as canceled on the register. It is currently impossible to know why the first trial is canceled, it will be necessary to monitor why and if it will take place on a new date.
Either way, the arrest and drunkenness are real as ESPN obtained a copy of the police report. We learn that the police officer decided to arrest Jeff Hardy because his car was zigzagging and he wanted to escape. The officer asked Jeff out of the car and he was unsteady and smelled of alcohol, according to the report. Jeff couldn’t walk without falling. The officer decided to give him a blood alcohol test and the first result obtained was 0.294 and the second 0.291 while the limit in Florida is 0.08.
At the moment the AEW or Jeff Hardy have still not reacted to this arrest. Jeff Hardy was announced for a 3-Way Ladder Match teaming with his brother for the AEW Tag Team Titles, we will have to watch if the match will still happen or not.
