Hardy Arrest Update – Police Say He Took An Impairing Substance



The Fayetteville Observer has released additional details regarding Matt Hardy’s arrest on Saturday, who was charged with driving while impaired after his car hit a tree in Moore County, North Carolina.

According to North Carolina state trooper B.J. Smith, Hardy was not drunk, but “appeared to have taken some type of impairing substance” at the time of his crash and subsequent arrest.

Smith adds that Hardy was “traveling more than 55 mph but less than 70 mph” when his Corvette ran off the road and struck a culvert pipe and a tree at 12:46 p.m.

Hardy submitted to a blood test, results of which are currently pending.

Hardy’s employer, TNA Wrestling, promptly terminated his contract following the arrest. He had already been on suspension, reportedly due to tardiness at live events. He had not appeared for the organization since May 30.

Hardy is due to appear in court Sept. 28.
