As we reported earlier here on the website, Matt Hardy was arrested on Monday by airport police at the Raleigh-Durhan International Airport. Airport Authority Officer Smith-Wynter pulled Hardy over after a concern was made about the way he was driving his vehicle.
They note that Hardy passed a breathalyzer test on the scene and had no alcohol in his system at the time of his arrest. He blew a 0.00. North Carolina State Trooper Hans Ellefson, who is a Drug Recognition Expert, was then called to the scene to further examine Hardy.
Trooper Ellefson told Pwinsider that he "conducted a series of test on [Hardy] and determined he was impaired and unable to safely operate a vehicle."
Hardy was then given a blood test. The results of that are unknown as of this writing.
Trooper Ellefson ruled that he believed Hardy was under the influence of "Central Nervous System depressants" but is waiting for blood tests to come back.
More as we get it.
