WWE issued the following statement to the media regarding Jeff Hardy’s arrest over the weekend for driving impaired:
"Jeff Hardy is responsible for his own personal actions. We are investigating the matter and awaiting information from local law enforcement officials."
Speculation is also mounting with regards to how WWE will punish Jeff Hardy. Hardy is currently out of action in the final stages of recovery from recent surgery, so he may just be kept away from television for a while longer, at this stage a suspension is not believed to be on the cards but certainly not ruled out for definite.
There will, of course, be a much wider concerning Hardy's own personal health given he has a track record of drink and drugs although has been clean for a number of years, the company will first and foremost want to ensure he isn't battling any demons in accordance with their wellness policy.
You may remember a few months ago SmackDown Live Superstar Jey Uso was arrested on a DWI and little came of his arrest although his arrest was less high-profile and serious in nature. The police report for Hardy's arrested noted, he "ran off the roadway to the right, in turn striking about 105 feet of guardrail before the back end of the car spun out of 90 degrees to the left, coming to rest in the middle of the right N bound lane of travel."
Hardy has believed to have caused over $15,000 worth of damage to both his Cadillac and guardrail.
