7:00 PM ET – Update: Jeff Hardy’s court date is set for July 22, 2019 at the Myrtle Beach Municipal Court.
WWE star Jeff Hardy was arrested Saturday morning in Myrtle Beach, SC. This story was first reported by TMZ.
We spoke to the Myrtle Beach Police Department and gathered the following information. Hardy was arrested by officer C. Zavistaski for Public Intoxication and Impairment at 1600 N Ocean Blvd at 11:30 a.m outside the Hilton by Enclave Resort. Hardy was booked at 12:30 pm, but was released later Saturday afternoon after posting $153 bond.
Jeff Hardy does have an up-coming court date, but the officer we spoke to did not have the date. The officer also stated that due to it being an ordinance violation, nothing will likely happen since it is a misdemeanour, he could face up to 30 days in jail, but will likely have to pay a small fine.
Hardy is currently out of action with a knee injury, which is rehabbing following surgery.
Jeff was arrested for a DWI last year, following a car accident. Hardy was driving his 2016 Cadillac when he ran off the roadway and struck a guard rail, resulting in his car spinning out into the middle of the right northbound lane. According to police damage is estimated at $8000 to his vehicle, and $5000 to the guard rail. Hardy was arrested after taking a breathalyzer test that read .25, which is over 3 times the legal limit of 0.08. His license was immediately suspended for 30 days following the arrest.
We have reached out to WWE for a comment.

Report: WWE Considering Dog Collar Match At TLC PPV
Earlier this week, WWE sent three tentative matches to the Target Center for local advertising of the TLC pay-per-view.
In the past, these matches have been placeholders, and are done to generate interest in the pay-per-view. According to Dave Meltzer, in the latest edition of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, all three matches sent to the venue are penciled in for the TLC pay-per-view on 12/15.
The current match card includes, Roman Reigns vs. Baron Corbin in a TLC Match, this may change, as their has been talks to host a Dog Collar Match rather than a traditional Tables, Ladders, Chairs Match, but that has yet to be finalized.
Other matches include The Kabuki Warriors defending the WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles against Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch in a Tables, Ladders, Chairs Match, and Bobby Lashley facing Rusev.
Originally, Lashley vs. Rusev was penciled in to take place at Survivor Series, but the company has decided to play out the storyline further, and have the match at TLC.
Changes To Original Survivor Series Plans, Current WWE Universal Championship Match
WWE Survivor Series is approaching, and WWE has yet to announce a Universal Championship match.
This up-coming Friday on SmackDown, Daniel Bryan is set to appear on MizTV to give his thoughts on the attack from Bray Wyatt on last week’s episode.
According to Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Radio, one plan originally had Bray Wyatt vs. The Miz at Survivor Series, with the angle beginning on MizTv the day after the Crown Jewel event. That angle was scrapped due to the traffic incident which held most of the roster overseas.
The current plan has Bray Wyatt defending the WWE Universal Championship against Daniel Bryan at the Survivor Series pay-per-view.
At one point, there was talk to have Daniel Bryan in the Triple Threat Match against AJ Styles and Roderick Strong. This would mean Daniel Bryan would defeat Shinsuke Nakamura for the Intercontinental Championship. Those plans have since been scrapped, and now Daniel Bryan is scheduled to work against Wyatt for the Universal Championship.
