VOLUSIA COUNTY, Florida (WGHP/WFLA) – Former WWE star and current AEW wrestler Jeff Hardy was arrested in Florida early Monday morning, according to reports. He was charged with felony DUI, violation of driver’s license restrictions and driving with a suspended, canceled or revoked license.
Hardy was stopped on Interstate 95 by the Florida Highway Patrol after receiving calls about a possible impaired driver in Volusia County. He was taken to the Volusia County Jail on $3,500 bond. Hardy has been arrested twice in North Carolina in the past, in March 2018 and October 2019.
The WWE describes Hardy as “one of the most popular WWE champions in history”. Known as the Charismatic Enigma, Hardy is one half of the Hardy Boyz wrestling duo along with his brother Matt. They were scheduled to wrestle in the World Tag Title 3-Way Ladder Match against Jungle Boy, Luchasaurus and the Young Bucks on AEW Dynamite Wednesday. It’s unclear if the arrest will affect the game.
