Matt Hardy Involved In Car Crash Before First DWI Arrest



The Fayetteville Observer reported Thursday that on the day prior to Matt Hardy’s arrest on August 20, 2011 for driving while intoxicated in Moore County, North Carolina, he was involved in a car crash on U.S. 1 in Southern Pines.

A North Carolina officer found that Hardy had run his 2006 Cadillac off the road and crashed into a guard rail near South Bennett Street. He claimed to the officer that a car ran him off the road, causing him to crash.

On Monday, Hardy was arrested at Raleigh-Durham International Airport and charged with driving while impaired. According to the arrest report, police received a complaint of a “possible drunk driver” late Monday afternoon who almost “hit two drivers three separate times.” When an officer spotted the driver, Hardy’s car, “swerved into the curb and then back onto the road.”

The officer pulled over the automobile and said Hardy “had slow and slurred speech, sleepy eyes and a very lackadaisical demeanor.” He took the walk-the-line test, but after taking two steps, lost his balance and failed to stay on the line.

A breathalyzer test was negative for the presence of alcohol. A North Carolina Highway Patrol drug recognition officer examined the former TNA Wrestling Superstar and determined that he was under the influence of drugs. He was arrested and hauled to the Wake County Detention Center.

Hardy is scheduled to appear in District Court in Raleigh on Nov. 30.

More details on his arrest are available here.
