WWE has announced that Friday’s SmackDown on FOX will feature a segment with Jeff Hardy giving his side of what happened with last week’s hit & run that injured Elias. The storyline is that Hardy was arrested for DUI, public intoxication and the hit & run, but later cleared on all charges by police.
