Hardy was reportedly booked into Myrtle Beach jail and could spend 30 days behind bars with a $500 fine if convicted. Court records indicate he was arrested last year near Charlotte, N.C., on suspicion of driving under the influence.
According to TMZ, he was involved in a vehicle collision and arrested after a breathalyzer test allegedly revealed he had a .25 blood-alcohol level.
In response to the most recent arrest, the WWE issued a brief statement.
“Jeff Hardy is responsible for his own personal actions,” the organization said.
