WWE Superstar 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 has released the statement below about Jeff Hardy’s arrest.
“Jeff Hardy is responsible for his own personal actions.”
In an update, the police report notes that Hardy was found passed out in a public stairwell and reeked of alcohol before he was arrested, according to TMZ.
Hardy admitted to police that he had been drinking vodka before he was found by police in the stairwell.
It was originally reported that Hardy was facing the misdemeanor charge of public intoxication. Hardy ended up paying a $153 ticket for that charge, and the case is now closed. He is not facing a conviction on his record.
