Hardy Update: Lawyer Brings Up Wrestling in Court, the Fan Who Supplied Him and More

– Here are a few more details on Jeff Hardy’s legal troubles from The Fayetteville Observer:

* Wrestling fan Thomas Ray Cruz met Hardy after a show in Florida and offered to supply him with prescription pain pills. This is the shipment that arrived addressed to Hardy at a FedEx shipment facility on September 10th, 2009. The pills were in a Maxwell House coffee can. Cruz, who lives in Florida, was arrested in Moore County in November of 2010 on charges of conspiracy to traffic in opium and two counts of trafficking in opium. He is now free on a $50,000 bond and will return to court this November.

* Hardy’s lawyer told the court that he began using pain pills because of wrestling. He said wrestling is physically demanding and violent, and that “fans want violence.”

* According to Hardy’s lawyer, he has tested clean for drugs since his arrest and has been cooperative with police.

* The lawyer brought up how Hardy does charitable work and mentioned he is one of the top requested stars for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. The judge asked, “How many of those parents would want someone dealing with their child who is using drugs?”

* Prosecutors were wanting Hardy to serve 30 days in jail but the judge reduced the sentence to just 10 days.

    well thats just bullshit.

  • grizz

    It’s nice to see Jeff feels he can blame the fans for his screw ups.

  • JWaller

    Maybe it wasn’t “drugs” per say. Never really came out and said what messed hum up.

  • venom

    I didn’t even think about the pv match until Trixie brought it up. Good point.

  • Valo487

    What Trixie said.

  • jay are

    that proves a point that hardy should retire or be retired before he gets his ass kicked again. no matter what, lawyers have a license to steal and lie and judges to get paid off. what a bunch of crap. clean since 2009? next thing your going to hear is that fat hardy wasn’t driving the car that hit the pole a couple weeks back. your honor i was driving minding my own business and all of a sudden a pole jumped from the sidewalk and hit my car! tna must get rid of the cancer before it kills itself. dixie carter whats wrong with this picture?

  • Liam Catterson

    Clean since 2009? That is bullshit, I guess the lawyers are not fond of TNA too, that or I guess Hardy couldn’t be arsed to fight Sting…

  • Nick Is Awsome

    apparently if your last name is hardy your full of shit. He may be clean now but for how long
    @Trixie aparently hardys lawyer didnt watch the ppv

  • Trixie

    Wait, if he’s been clean since his arrest in 2009, what the hell was that 30 second match with Sting?

  • venom

    I still remember when Jeff said the cops set him up and left the package in front of his house.

    Glad we can all clear this up now.
