WWE Superstar Jeff Hardy was arrested in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina for being intoxicated in public this weekend, according to TMZ.
Hardy was arrested and booked early Saturday morning for public intoxication and impairment. There’s no word yet on what led to the arrest, but Myrtle Beach is a notorious arrest trap for people visiting from out of town and partying too much.
Hardy was released earlier today on a bond that was less than $200.
Jeff is currently out of action for WWE, recovering from knee surgery that he underwent in May. It was reported that he would be out of action for 6-9 months.
Below is Hardy’s latest mugshot photo from TMZ:
UPDATE: WWE issued a statement to PWInsider.com regarding Hardy’s arrest:
“Jeff Hardy is responsible for his own personal actions.”
A person familiar with the local laws in Myrtle Beach described this offense as similar to a parking ticket. Hardy paid the first time offenders fee of $153 and there is no court date. Unless he plans to contest it, this is likely the end of the situation.
