Jeff Hardy & WWE Diva In Trouble For Drunken Meltdowns

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 PW Insider, it was reported that Jeff Hardy won’t be returning to AEW until his legal issues are dealt with.

Hardy has a pre-trial hearing for his DUI related charges in Florida on Wednesday 10/19. As we reported over the summer, Hardy’s attorneys waived his right to a speedy trial and requested a hearing set for July be pushed back 60 days to assist in his defense. The 10/19 date would be the rescheduled hearing.

PWInsider is told Hardy is still officially with AEW, but is not expected to return from his suspension until his legal matters are cleared up and he’s shown he can maintain sobriety. Hardy has been in treatment for some time after his arrest earlier this year.

According to PW Insider, Sytch is slated for the pre-trial hearing next Thursday, October 13th in the criminal case against her in Florida. She has been charged with one count of DUI causing death (DUI Manslaughter, a felony in the third degree), one count of causing death while operating a vehicle with a suspended or revoked driver’s license (a felony in the third degree), four counts of DUI causing injury to a person, and three counts of DUI causing damage to property following the March death of 75-year-old Julian Lasseter during a traffic incident in Ormond Beach, Florida.

Court records also show that depositions of four police officers involved in Sytch’s case are all scheduled for November 15th. This past August, Sytch waived her right to a speedy trial “arising out of the criminal episode made the subject of this prosecution; specifically, the right to be tried within 175 days of her being taken into custody as provided by law and Rule 3.191, Florida Rules of Criminal Procedure.”
