The situation surrounding Jeff Hardy’s latest DUI arrest rumbles on with a new date set for an arraignment and bond hearing for the AEW star.
Jeff Hardy was arrested on June 13th after allegedly driving under the influence. According to Volusia County jail records, Hardy was charged with Driving While License Canceled/Suspended/Revoked, Violation of Restrictions Placed on Drivers License, and DUI Alcohol/Drugs Third Offense within 10 Years.
It was later reported that Hardy had nearly four times the legal limit of alcohol in his blood at the time of his arrest.
PWInsider reported on the 1st of July that Jeff Hardy had entered a written plea of not guilty on June 28th, and they also obtained a copy of the plea itself. The plea reads as follows, and revealed that he will not be arraigned on July 5th as originally scheduled as he waived the right to be present at pretrial conferences:
“Defendant, Jeffrey Nero Hardy, pursuant to rules 3.160(a), Florida Rules of Criminal Procedure, waives arraignment by filing this written plea of not guilty. Albritton v. White, 948 So. 2d 852, 854 (Fla. 2d DCA 2007). Defendant further waives the right to be present at all pretrial conferences”
Now Wrestling Inc. has reported that the 5th of July hearing likely did not take place according to a Volusia County court official. A new date for Hardy’s hearing has now been set for August 2nd.
