According to celebrity website TMZ, inactive TNA Wrestling star Matt Hardy was arrested in his homestate of North Carolina for allegedly driving while intoxicated. He was shortly afterward taken to the Moore County jail and was bailed out at 7PM local time.
Just this week, Matt Hardy sent out a tweet on Twitter saying that he was getting ready to get back into the ring. “I’m ready.. It’s time for me to get back in the ring. I’m gonna train my ass off & get ready for the day-wherever it may be. Preach,” he said.
UPDATE: The North Carolina State Highway Patrol officer says that Hardy’s 2009 Corvette ran off the road and hit a tree before he was arrested. He was by himself at the time and didn’t suffer any injuries. The trooper says he saw signs of impairment and arrested him. Results for a blood test are still pending.
