Jeff Hardy influenced an entire generation of fans and aspiring wrestling with his insane spots and risky maneuver. Unfortunately, his personal demons caught up to him in major way. In June 2022, Jeff was arrested for DUI and that completely derailed the plans Tony Khan had in store for the superstar in AEW. After several months of trials and tribulations, there’s finally good news.
According to Fightful, Jeff Hardy’s DUI case has been officially closed as revealed by the latest documents from the Volusia County Clerk of Circuit Court records. The development comes two days after Jeff’s attorney filed a motion to exclude certain evidence from the trial with the description of “unreliable breath test results.”
20. Mr. Hardy’s breath tests did not comply with FDLE’s requirements established in FDLE’s administrative rules to ensure reliable quantitative breath tests.
21. There is insufficient probative evidence that the breath tests in Mr. Hardy’s case were performed substantially in accordance with methods approved by FDLE and with a compliant machine approved by FDLE.
22. For the above reasons, this Court should enter an order excluding any evidence of a breath test and breath test results obtained in this case.
Jeff Hardy was arrested for driving under the influence after leaving a Florida Dave & Busters, where he had a concert that night. It was Jeff’s 3rd offense of DUI within 10 years. His driver’s license was suspended for 10 years as well. AEW asked WarnerBros. Discovery executives to remove Jeff Hardy from all advertising following his arrest. He was suspended from the promotion without pay as well.
Jeff Hardy is finally getting another chance at redemption and that is what matters at the end. It remains to be seen if wrestling fans will witness the return of the Charismatic Enigma in AEW in the foreseeable future. Stay tuned to Ringside News for more.
