WWE legend Jeff Hardy has been sentenced after his DUI case was closed following a no contest plea.

The 45-year-old star, who currently works for rival promotion All Elite Wrestling (AEW), pleaded ‘nolo contendere’ to all charges following his arrest in June 2022 for driving under the influence of alcohol, driving with a suspended, canceled or revoked license, and violation of restrictions placed on a driver’s license.

Hardy has been adjudicated guilty on all charges, and has been sentenced to 38 days in prison, which he was credited with time already served and thus instantly completed his sentence.

He is on probation for 24 months, and must pay a fine of $4,000 plus $586 in court costs, while his driver license has been suspended for 10 years.

His vehicle must also be impounded for 90 days, while Volusia County Clerk of Circuit Court records list ‘vehicle interlock device’ for two years in his sentencing.

Other provisions including court restrictions, needing to attend DUI school or drug rehabilitation programme, and community service.

Hardy was pulled over in June last year after being spotted driving erratically and he appeared to be unsteady on his feet as he exited the vehicle, while as he was questioned by officers he seemed to admit to drinking shots of Fireball before driving.

He then looked to stumble through field sobriety tests, and an officer then handcuffed Hardy and told him he was ‘under arrest for the offense of DUI’.

It’s said Hardy – who has been open about his struggles with addiction and was convinced of DUIs in March 2018 and October 2019 – provided two breath samples over the .08 limit in Florida.

Earlier this week, Hardy’s lawyer filed a motion to suppress breath test results and argued they were unreliable.

The motion argued that the Intoxilyzer unit to test his breath ‘exhibited significant signs of unreliability both during inspections and subject breath tests, yet it was not repaired or removed from evidentiary use’.

According to the motion, the unit had not been inspected in the month prior to Hardy’s arrest, while the record of the breath test shows the first sample returned a 0.313 blood-alcohol level while a second attempt to administer the test failed.

He was released from jail on a $3,500 bond, and AEW boss Tony Khan later revealed the former world champion was suspended without pay and had been offered assistance in getting ‘treatment for substance abuse issues’.
