Jeff Hardy made his AEW debut on the March 9th episode of AEW Dynamite, saving Matt Hardy from an attack by the Andrade Family Office. Just as fans believed they’d see The Hardy Boys again, Jeff Hardy was suspended from the firm after being arrested for DUI.

According to PW Insider, Jeff Hardy is scheduled for a pre-trial hearing in Florida on Wednesday, December 21st, at 8:30 a.m. Hardy is obligated to present in court for the hearing, according to court documents. On June 28th, Hardy filed a written not-guilty plea with the court.

Hardy’s attorneys renounced his right to a speedy trial and asked that a hearing scheduled for this past July be moved back 60 days to help with his defense. Last October, Hardy’s scheduled hearing was pushed back again due to a last-minute motion by his attorney, who stated that Hardy’s attorneys “recently provided extensive mitigation materials to the counsel for the State.” The attorney also noted that “the parties require additional time to negotiate a potential pretrial resolution”, implying that the two parties are working on a plea deal to avoid a trial.

Hardy was in Florida for a signing at the time of his arrest. It was at an Orlando Dave & Buster’s for promoter Jason Blaustein. The night before, Hardy took part in a signing and photo session, as well as an acoustic musical performance. You can read the full information below.

Jeff Hardy is slated for a pre-trial hearing related to his DUI related charges in Florida next Wednesday 12/21 at 8:30 AM.

Hased on court records, Hardy is required to appear before the court for the hearing. Hardy filed a written plea of not guilty filed with the court on 6/28.

Hardy’s attorneys waived his right to a speedy trial and requested a hearing originally set for this past July be pushed back 60 days to assist in his defense.

Hardy’s scheduled hearing last October was then again pushed back following a last minute motion from his attorney that noted Hardy’s attorneys “recently provided extensive mitigation materials to the counsel for the State” and that “The parties require additional time to negotiate a potential pretrial resolution”, so it would appear that the two sides are working on a plea agreement that would prevent a trial.

We will have to see how this pans out for Jeff Hardy. Obviously, this is a bad situation, and only time will tell if a judge will require jail time. Keep checking back with Ringside News for more.
