A new update has confirmed when Jeff Hardy is next set to appear in court regarding his DUI charge from earlier this year.
Jeff Hardy was arrested on 13th June 2022, for driving without a license and being three times over the legal DUI limit. It’s believed he was barely responsive at the time of the arrest.
He would go on to be suspended without pay by All Elite Wrestling, and entered a rehab facility. Over the last couple of months there have been reports that he has turned a corner, and could return to action at some point relatively soon.
However, a new report from Pro Wrestling Insider has confirmed that ‘The Charismatic Enigma’ will be required to appear before the court this coming Thursday, 17th November. He previously put in a written plea of not guilty at the end of June.
Jeff Hardy had previously been arrested on similar charges in March 2018 and October 2019, making this a third strike in a state where such a charge is seen as a felony offence.
A hearing was originally scheduled for October, however this was pushed back due to extensive mitigating materials which had only recently been received. The report also notes that the evidence has led to the two parties working on a potential pretrial resolution, which could lead to plea deal preventing trial.
At the end of 2021, Jeff Hardy left WWE in acrimonious fashion, with reports circulating that the reason for his release was that he had refused to enter rehab although it transpired afterwards that he may not have been intoxicated after all. As had been expected by most, ‘The Charismatic Enigma’ reunited with his brother Matt when he debuted in AEW on the 9th March edition of Dynamite.
