Jeff Hardy’s DUI Case Has Been Closed

Jeff Hardy’s DUI Case Has Been Closed

Nine months ago, Jeff Hardy was arrested for DUI, with it noted the police initially pulled him over due to him swerving in the road. Arresting officers would say in their report they smelt alcohol on the AEW wrestler and described him as “in a stupor and confused.” A breathalyzer test would follow, and Hardy was found to be 3.7 times the legal limit, with blood-alcohol levels being 0.294 and 0.291. Nevertheless, it was revealed that on June 28th, Hardy pleaded not guilty, which was understandable as there was a real chance he could face jail time.

Now though, it has been confirmed by records from the Volusia County Clerk of Circuit Court that the DUI case has officially been closed. Though it was noted that Hardy’s license would be suspended for ten years, he has been fined $4586, and he’ll get 38 days credit for the time he has served in county jail as part of his sentence.

The big question is now when will Hardy return to the ring, and with him successfully completing rehab, his suspension by Tony Khan will likely be lifted sooner rather than later. Of course, it also depends on Hardy wanting to return to the ring, and in past interviews, his brother Matt has suggested it isn’t a foregone conclusion that Jeff will even resume his career.
