Former WWE Champion and tag team specialist Jeff Hardy had a great time in WWE but ultimately left the company due to a variety of reasons. He made his way to AEW back in March of this year and was having a great time there.
However, that all changed after he was arrested for his third DUI before an episode of AEW Dynamite. According to Florida criminal statutes, special laws are in place for multiple DUI offenders. A third DUI conviction within ten years is considered a felony in the state. Due to this, he could very well be seeing some jail time.
If an individual is convicted of a third DUI within ten years in Florida, a judge is required to impose several penalties. Many people wrongly ended up blaming his brother Matt Hardy for putting him in danger as well.
According to a report by PW Insider, Jeff Hardy was seen in a drunken stupor when police pulled him over and ordered him to remove his hands when Hardy was reaching into his backpack. This new information is detailed in the court documentation that is now a part of Hardy’s ongoing trial.
The FHP tried to pull over Hardy, who initially did not respond, but finally did pull over. When Troopers approached Hardy, he was reaching into a backpack and was told to remove his hands.
“I issued loud verbal commands for the driver to take his hands out of the bag to which he did not respond,” Trooper Zach Steiner wrote in the report.
“I proceeded to slap the passenger window to gain his attention which was also unsuccessful. The driver appeared to be in a stupor and confused.” Hardy had issues placing the car in park, rolling it forward. He then slammed on the brakes and finally put the car in park.”
