Jeff Hardy Jail? Arrest And Charges
No, Jeff Hardy is not in jail. However, he is reportedly in rehab and suspended from AEW. Wrestling Headlines reports that he could face up to 5 years in prison if convicted.
On June 13, 2022, Florida Highway Patrol officers arrested Jeff for driving with a suspended license, violating license restrictions, and felony DUI.
The officers reported that when they approached Jeff, he appeared confused, belligerent, and smelled of alcohol. The test showed his blood alcohol level of 0.291, well above the legal limit of 0.08.
AEW President Tony Khan made a press release on June 14, announcing that Jeff was indefinitely suspended without pay. He added that AEW would only invite him back on the condition of completion of alcohol rehabilitation treatment and sobriety.
His scheduled appearance at Triplemanía XXX on June 18, where the Hardy brothers would face Dragon Lee and Dralístico, was canceled, and Johnny Elite replaced him.
