WWE Provides an Update On Jeff Hardy's "Arrest"
Tonight's SmackDown opened with a controversial angle that made it look like Elias had been injured in a car crash outside of the WWE Performance Center, with what appeared to be an intoxicated Hardy.


Elias was taken away in an ambulance while Hardy was arrested and taken away in a police car. Hardy later returned to the Performance Center to provide a distraction for Sheamus while he was competing against Daniel Bryan in the Main Event.

It's interesting to note that WWE chose to charge Hardy with public intoxication and DUI as these are the most recent charges he's been hit with in real-life after two separate incidents in 2019 while he was on the shelf with an injury. WWE has received a lot of backlash from fans on social media over the segment that opened this week's SmackDown.

'WWE Digital' has provided an update on the "Jeff Hardy hit-and-run arrest" angle with the following:
Breaking news on the status of Jeff Hardy

WWE Digital has learned Jeff Hardy was released from custody by the Orlando police after successfully passing the required sobriety tests, therefore absolving Hardy of the charges of public intoxication, driving under the influence, and the hit-and-run on Elias earlier tonight.

Elias was found injured in the parking lot with an abandoned car nearby before Friday Night SmackDown began. Hardy was taken into custody after being found in a dazed state not far from the scene, but he reemerged as Sheamus battled Daniel Bryan in the night's final match.

Stay tuned to WWE social and digital channels for the latest updates on the developing situation.
