WWE Issues Statement on Jeff Hardy's Arrest

WWE superstar Jeff Hardy has been arrested for driving while impaired. His driving license has also been revoked for the thirty days following his arrest.

Hardy is now scheduled to be in court on Monday, April 16th for his first hearing on these charges. The police report notes that Hardy totaled his 2016 Cadillac CTS-V with an estimated $8,000 in damages.

WWE have finally spoken up about the incident and have released a statement about Hardy's arrest.

Hardy, who has been in and out of WWE since the 1990s, underwent surgery to fix a torn rotator cuff in October.

Fans have long wondered whether WWE has plans for Hardy at WrestleMania 34, but it's possible they were planning to bring him back for the big show as he was reportedly set to begin shaking off the ring rust at the WWE Performance Center at some point in March.

Another report from TMZ revealed that Hardy submitted to a breath test which revealed that he was three times over the legal limit.

He was forced to go under the knife after suffering a torn rotator cuff and labrum in October. In 2009 he was arrested for possession of anabolic steroids and controlled prescription pills. His brother Matt has stayed busy with his Woken character in his absence, and filmed the Ultimate Deletion last week, though there's no word on whether or not Jeff was involved. It is unknown whether Jeff, who previously had a role in the Broken Universe but has not undergone a transformation in WWE due to being off television, played a part in that match.

More details may come out from Hardy's arrest and whether it will affect his standing in the company remains to be seen.
