Updates on Jeff Hardy

Jun 30, 2022 - by Marc Middleton

Jeff Hardy reportedly entered a rehab facility earlier this month, and has now plead not guilty for his recent DUI charges in Florida.

As we’ve noted, Hardy was arrested on Monday, June 13 in Volusia County, Florida, and charged with second degree misdemeanor Driving While License Canceled/Suspended/Revoked, second degree misdemeanor Violation of Restrictions Placed on Drivers License, and third degree felony DUI Alcohol/Drugs Third Offense within 10 Years. He was bonded out of jail later that evening. You can find links to the various Hardy reports below, including footage of his arrest, why police approached his car with guns drawn, the 911 calls that other drivers made, Hardy’s mugshot, and more.

In an update, PWInsider reports that Hardy entered a rehab facility on Tuesday, June 21. There is no word yet on how long he will be there.

Regarding the legal charges against Hardy from the DUI arrest in Florida earlier this month, court records show that he filed a written plea of not guilty on Tuesday, June 28.

Hardy, who has been out on $3,500 bond, is scheduled to be arraigned on Tuesday, July 5 at 2:30pm. Hardy’s primary charge is a felony, which is punishable by up to 5 years in prison if convicted.

AEW President Tony Khan announced earlier this month that Hardy was suspended indefinitely, and without pay. Khan noted that the suspension will stand until Hardy underwent treatment and is able to maintain sobriety. Khan first revealed the treatment on his Forbidden Door media call, and noted that Jeff is doing much better.

    What kind of plea bargain did he get where he can still plead not guilty? Good lord, Jeff, show some damn responsibility!

    @Mack
    He is actually showing responsibility. N.G pleas are standard. Typically what could happen is that Jeff could be forced to surrender his license. He could be ordered to rehab. He could also he ordered to attend a V.I.P (Victim Impact Panel) as well. And there’s the slight chance the judge could give him five years.

    For the record, any attorney will tell their client to enter a Not Guilty plea. Entering a guilty plea typically takes plea bargins off the table.

    Yeah. I guess we will just have to wait and see. He certainly is no Sunny, but i do feel like he needs some serious time away from the ring and to work on himself.
