Jeff Hardy’s BAC reportedly three times legal limit at time of arrest
WWE superstar Jeff Hardy was arrested for driving while impaired after he crashed his car in North Carolina on Saturday, and police say he was heavily intoxicated at the time of the accident.
According to a police report obtained by TMZ Sports, Hardy was involved a single-car crash just after 8 p.m. on Saturday while driving his 2016 Cadillac CTS-V sedan. He took a breathalyzer test and blew a .25, which is more than three times the legal limit of .08. He was immediately arrested and taken into custody.
Marc Middleton of WrestlingInc.com provided some more details surrounding the incident:
The police report notes that Hardy totaled his 2016 Cadillac with an estimated $8,000 in damages. The VIN listed on the police report is registered to a 2016 Cadillac CTS-V. Hardy was not traveling over the speed limit but was going an estimated 50 mph at the time of impact. The area of the accident is about 2 hours from Hardy’s home in Cameron, NC. The report also indicates Hardy underwent some sort of test for alcohol but that the results were pending at the time of the arrest.
Officer Kelemecz wrote the following on the accident:
“Driver of Vehicle #1 ran off the roadway to the right, in turn striking about 105 feet of guardrail before the back end of the car spun out 90 degrees to the left, coming to rest in the middle of the right N bound lane of travel. The driver was arrested and charged with DWI.”
The police report lists an estimated $5,000 in damages to the 105 foot of guardrail, owned by the NC Department of Transportation. This could be a factor in any restitution that the court orders Hardy to pay.
Hardy has had his driver’s license suspended for 30 days, which is standard in North Carolina following a DWI arrest. Hardy’s first court date is scheduled for Monday, April 16th in Cabarrus County.
The WWE has since issued a statement regarding the arrest.
“Jeff Hardy is responsible for his own personal actions,” the statement read. “We are investigating the matter and awaiting information from local law enforcement officials.”
