Before his return to the ring after a shoulder injury that kept him out of action for seven months, Jeff Hardy was arrested in North Carolina and charged with driving while impaired.
Charlotte’s WBTV revealed that the United States Champion plead guilty to the charge on Monday, which ended in a suspension of his driver’s license and a $300 fine. Hardy’s license will be suspended for 120 days, and during that time he’ll have to complete 48 hours of community service, along with a treatment class and assessment.
Hardy blew a .25 BAC on his breathalyzer test he took at the Detention Center back on March 10. Hardy still made an appearance during the Ultimate Deletion a few weeks after the incident, and the WWE issued a statement which said:
Jeff Hardy is responsible for his own personal actions. We are investigating the matter and awaiting information from local law enforcement officials.
According to the police, it was estimated that Hardy caused $5,000 worth of damage to the guardrail which he struck on the night of his arrest and another $8,000 to his 2016 Cadillac.
