Judge Released Matt Hardy On Promise To Enter Drug Rehab



The Pilot reports that Matt Hardy was essentially forced to enter a rehabilitation program following his most recent arrest. Magistrate Charlie Smoak agreed to release the former WWE Superstar on a “promise to appear” in court that was tied to his undergoing treatment for substance abuse.

“That is only part of the release order,” Krueger said. “It also states that he must comply with a treatment program or be placed in the detention center under a $1 million bond.”

On September 14, Moore County deputies searched Hardy’s Cameron, North Carolina home and charged Hardy with possessing a controlled substance with intent to sell or deliver, possessing a controlled substance, maintaining a dwelling for use of drugs and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.

Following their search at his residence, deputies said they had discovered “one hit” of the drug known as ecstasy and also found 20 vials of anabolic steroids.

This was his third arrest within a month. On August 19, Hardy crashed his Cadillac into a guard rail on U.S. 1 in Southern Pines but was not cited. The next day, he ran his Corvette into a tree south of Vass. That resulted in a DWI charge.

On September 12, police arrested Hardy outside RDU International Airport Monday afternoon and charged him with driving under the influence. He was given a written promise to appear at the Wake County courthouse in Raleigh on November 30.
