Wrestler Matt Hardy Arrested on Suspicion of DWI
Former WWE Superstar Matt Hardy, who currently wrestles for Total Nonstop Action, was arrested in North Carolina on suspicion of driving while intoxicated, according to TMZ.
He was pulled over this afternoon and released around 7:00 P.M. Now I can understand a drink with lunch, but it looks like he went a little overboard. Few details are available at this time, but it indeed looks like Matt Hardy Version 2.0 blew over a 0.8.
Matt and his brother Jeff, were tag team stars in WWE as The Hardy Boyz and both were given the opportunity to shine as singles stars. While Jeff won the WWE Title, Matt was always Khloe. Talented in his own right, but he didn’t seem to have “it”. After Jeff, arguably one of the most eccentric personalities in a world of eccentric personalities, was released and brought back while his brother stayed around. Eventually Jeff would leave again and Matt would start to act strange. He even acted out and lashed out WWE in various social media outlets.
The Hardys are no strangers to legal trouble. In 2009, Jeff was arrested on charges of trafficking in controlled prescription pills and possession of anabolic steroids, after a search of his house yielded 262 Vicodin prescription pills, 180 soma prescription pills, 555 milliliters of anabolic steroids, a residual amount of powder cocaine, and drug paraphernalia. That case is still pending.
