Back in March, shortly before he returned to action following shoulder surgery and rehab, Jeff Hardy was arrested and charged with driving while impaired (DWI) in Cabarrus County, North Carolina.
The police report indicated Hardy blew a .25 blood alcohol content (BAC) on the breathylzer test he took at the Detention Center following an accident in which his 2016 Cadillac SUV spun out on Concord Parkway and crashed into a guardrail. WWE issued it standard statement on such matters, and Jeff returned to action on the April 8 episode of Raw.
Now, Charlotte’s WBTV has an update on Hardy’s case. The current United States champion plead guilty to DWI. The plea includes a suspended driver’s license and $300 in court costs. During the 120 day suspension, he’ll need to complete a treatment class and an assessment in order to get his license back, plus perform 48 hours worth of community service.
Interestingly, the length of the suspension is substantially less than what the North Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles website says is standard for a DWI offense.
