All The Details On Matt Hardy's Latest Arrest: Prior Arrests, Mug Shot, Police Report & More
Airport Authority Officer Smith-Wynter pulled Hardy over after police received a call late Monday afternoon about a possible drunk driver who almost "hit two drivers three separate times." When the officer spotted Hardy, his car swerved into the curb and back onto the road.
The officer alleged that Hardy "had slow and slurred speech, sleepy eyes and a very lackadaisical demeanor." He then took the walk-the-line test, but lost his balance and failed to "stay on the line" after two steps.
Hardy was given a blood test and passed a breathalyzer test on the scene, blowing a 0.00, and had no alcohol in his system at the time of his arrest. Police then called in North Carolina State Trooper Hans Ellefson, who is a Drug Recognition Officer, to further examine Hardy.
Ellefson said he believed Hardy was under the influence of "Central Nervous System depressants," however is waiting for the blood test to come back. Hardy was then arrested on the spot.
"For the first time in my life, I was framed.. 0, 0, and O.," Hardy wrote on his Twitter on Monday. "I'm truly appalled. This will not go down without a fight! Looks like I've got a bull's eye on my head."
Hardy's girlfriend Reby Sky posted several interesting tweets over the past week:
On Monday, she wrote: "Cameron bound (@ Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL) w/ 177 others)"
A few hours later (likely after landing in Raleigh, NC), she wrote: "F*ck this."
She then followed up on Tuesday with the following: "Haven't been kissed in almost a week. New low. If your heart was as big as the bruises we give each other we'd be the perfect couple ..."
This arrest comes less than a month after Hardy was arrested in North Carolina on August 20th for suspicion of driving while intoxicated. Hardy was arrested and charged with DWI by a state highway patrol trooper after his 2009 Corvette ran off a road and hit a tree. Hardy was by himself and did not suffer any injuries. The trooper stated that he saw signs of impairment, which led to the arrest. No other contraband was found in the vehicle. Hardy's mugshot from that arrest is at TMZ at this link.
"I took a breathalyzer immediately on the spot and it read clean, zero, nothing," Hardy wrote on his Youtube channel after the arrest. "Think about peeps! There's more to this story than meets the eye. MATTHEW"
State trooper B.J. Smith indicated that Hardy was not drunk, but "appeared to have taken some type of impairing substance" at the time of his crash and subsequent arrest.
"Oh. My. God. By bad luck is NEVER stopping apparently," Hardy proclaimed on his Twitter.
TNA immediately released Hardy after the arrest, who was already under suspension from the company due to tardiness at live events. He had not appeared for the organization since May 30.
"When the side windows glass smashed into my face, arms, & neck, some of the blood that did felt almost angelic. I went from being afraid to die to feeling like I was almost being reborn with some sort of an ABSOLUTE PURE LIFE-FORCE," wrote Hardy on his Twitter. "It was the most amazing thing I've every experience, I felt like I'd just received the blood of an angel flowing inside me-I know this sounds crazy! Due to these, I only have urges to help people. And miraculously, all my vices are gone."
