WWE Issues Statement on Jeff Hardy's Arrest

Stacy Diaz | 12 March, 2018, 17:30

Hardy was driving northbound on the Concord Parkway Saturday when he ran off road and hit 105 feet of guardrail before spinning out on control, according to the arrest report obtained by CBS Sports. Hardy's North Carolina licitness has already been suspended and has a court date set for April 16.

WWE Superstar Jeff Hardy fields questions from fans during the opening day of Wizard World Philadelphia 2017 in Philadelphia, PA on June 1, 2017. Wrestling Inc reports that Hardy totaled a 2016 Cadillac CTS-V with an estimated $8,000 in damages.

It is unknown whether Hardy suffered any injuries as result of the accident, but it does not appear as if he was transported to a hospital as he was released from jail shortly after being booked.

Jeff Hardy has been out of action for several months after undergoing surgery to fix a torn rotator cuff, but Hardy has been making headlines due to the fact that he was arrested over the weekend. His brother Matt has stayed busy with his Woken character in his absence, and filmed the Ultimate Deletion last week, though there's no word on whether or not Jeff was involved. However, it's not known if Jeff made an appearance, or the likelihood of him being edited out by WWE if so. How this news will impact on future plans also remains to be seen.

WWE has not commented on his arrest at this time but may at some point on Monday.

We'll bring you more on this emerging story as it develops.
