Jeff Hardy Arrested For Public Intoxication, WWE Releases Statement (Updated)

Jeff Hardy Arrested For Bein Intoxicated in Public
Jeff Hardy was arrested in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina for being intoxicated in public this weekend, according to TMZ.

Hardy was arrested and booked early Saturday morning for public intoxication and impairment. There's no word yet on what led to the arrest, but Myrtle Beach is a notorious arrest trap for people visiting from out of town and partying too much.

Hardy was released earlier today on a bond that was less than $200.

Jeff is currently out of action for WWE, recovering from knee surgery that he underwent in May. It was reported that he would be out of action for 6-9 months.


WWE issued the following statement to in regard to Jeff Hardy's arrest this morning: "Jeff Hardy is responsible for his own personal actions."

In regard to Hardy's arrest this morning, we are told by someone familiar with the Myrtle Beach Police department that the $153 Hardy paid is the fine for first time offenders in Myrtle Beach. Hardy won't be required to appear in court if he doesn't wish to contest the charge. The arrest won't hurt his ability to appear in South Carolina and locally, is seen as similar to a parking ticket and since he's paid the fine, that's likely the end of the situation unless Hardy wishes to argue the charge.
