As the DUI charge notes, this is Hardy’s 3rd offense within the past 10 years, which adds to the severity of the charge. Hardy has faced numerous legal troubles in the past. A 2011 arrest for drug trafficking led to 10 days in jail for the former-WWE Champion, which Hardy served in full. Hardy was arrested twice in 2019, once in July for public intoxication, and then again in October for driving while impaired. The two 2019 arrests are the charges that added severity to Hardy’s DUI.
A multi-time world champion in IMPACT and WWE, Hardy was released from WWE earlier this year after reports of erratic behavior and signed with All Elite Wrestling in March, where he reunited with his brother Matt. Hardy is scheduled for a ladder match on this Wednesday’s AEW Dynamite.
