As reported earlier, former WWE and TNA wrestler Matt Hardy was arrested at the Raleigh-Durham International Airport once again this week in North Carolina and charged with DWI (Driving While Intoxicated).
TMZ.com has published the police report from Matt Hardy’s arrest and the details are disturbing to say the least.
Matt Hardy was at the airport on Monday afternoon when police received several phone calls from concerned drivers who said Matt’s car “almost hit two drivers three separate times.”
When an airport police officer spotted Hardy, the wrestler’s car, “swerved into the curb and then back onto the road.”
Once Hardy was pulled over, the officer claims Hardy was asked to step out of the vehicle. Matt proceeded to open his door and get out of the car – without putting the car in park. The police report reads, “The vehicle rolled forward and I yelled for him to put the vehicle in park.”
Matt Hardy was observed to have “slow and slurred speech, sleepy eyes and a very lackadaisical demeanor.”
Hardy was asked to walk in a straight line but – “after taking two steps, Mr. Hardy lost his balance and failed to stay on the line.” He was given a second chance but only made it “two or three steps” before failing to remain “heel-to-toe” and lost his balance again. Hardy took another field sobriety test where he had to stand on one leg. “He was unable to hold his leg up past 1 second.”
Hardy took a breathalyzer test – which showed that he had zero alcohol in his system.
Cops then called in a “Drug Recognition Officer” to perform even more tests – and they determined Hardy was under the influence of “Central Nervous System depressants” and arrested him on the spot. Hardy’s blood was taken for drug testing – and those results are not in as of this writing.
Hardy is due back in court [for this offense] on November 30th.
Shortly after the arrest, Matt Hardy’s girlfriend Reby Sky tweeted, “F*ck this.”
