Guess who got arrested for issues with drug abuse?
Surprise! It's none other than Matt Hardy, who was busted today in North Carolina for driving while intoxicated. TMZ has the story:
According to the North Carolina State Highway Patrol, a trooper discovered Hardy after his 2009 Corvette ran off the road and struck a tree. Hardy was by himself at the time and did not suffer any injuries.
The trooper observed signs of impairment and arrested Hardy. He was charged with DWI and the trooper found no other contraband in the vehicle. Hardy submitted to a blood test, the results are pending.
Hardy, who was suspended by TNA in June for a bizarre video of his brother tasering his girlfriend and repeated tardiness to shows, has a long history of drug abuse and creating problems whereever he's been. His prolonged absence from TNA apparently stems from his refusal to go to drug rehabilitation, along with his brother Jeff.
So I suppose it was only a matter of time before something like this happened to shed even more light on the fact that Hardy is still a train wreck with far too many problems for any promotion to take on right now, even TNA.
And that's saying something.
UPDATE: TMZ is now reporting that Hardy has been released from TNA following this incident with a rep from the company reportedly saying:
"TNA today released Impact Wrestling star Matt Hardy from its roster. Hardy was already under suspension from the company."
There was a lot of speculation that he wanted his release anyway and it looks like TNA has finally given it to him after letting him sit on the sidelines for a few months.
