Jeff Hardy is a true veteran in the pro wrestling world and no matter what, he will always have the support of fans. Unfortunately, Jeff Hardy’s personal demons continue to plague his existence even now. His DUI case is over and now he will be facing a lot of ramifications.
Jeff Hardy made headlines for all the wrong reasons after he was arrested for driving under the influence after leaving a Florida Dave & Busters, where he had a concert that night. It simply got worse for him after that. This was his third DUI arrest in a decade as well.
As previously reported, Jeff Hardy’s DUI case is now officially closed. Hardy was arrested at 9:54am on June 13 for three charges.
Violating Restrictions Placed on Driving License
Driving While License Cancelled/Suspended/Revoked
DUI Alcohol/Drugs third offense within 10 years
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, it was noted that court records show that the case is now closed after Hardy submitted a written plea of “nolo contendere” to all charges.
“Nolo contendere” translates from Latin as “I do not wish to contend” and is a “plea of no contest” without entering a guilty plea or admitting one’s guilt. His licence was also suspended for 10 years.
Hardy’s license will be suspended for the next decade and he will get 38 days credit for time served in county jail as part of his sentence.
The report also revealed the full sentence via Volusia County court records. You can check out his full penalties below.
A 10-year suspension of his license
Two years with an interlock device and 90-day vehicle impoundment
Court-mandated DUI school or drug rehab program
A 38-day county jail sentence with 38 days credit for time served
Two years probation
$4586 in fines and court fees
Jeff Hardy is still a member of the AEW roster. However, he will only be able to return from suspension “upon successfully completing treatment and maintaining his sobriety.” We’ll have to see when he will be able to return.
