Volusia County, FL – Former WWE star Jeff Hardy was arrested for DUI on a Florida highway on Monday after he blew a .294 in a roadside breathalyzer test (video below).
Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) stopped Hardy in his white Dodge charger on Interstate 4 after several drivers called 911 to report his vehicle for reckless and erratic driving on June 13, FOX News reported.
Dashcam video from a FHP patrol vehicle showed officers approached Hardy’s car and ordered him to get out.
The police report said Hardy “appeared to be in a stupor and confused” when the officer slapped the car window to get his attention, according to The Dayton Beach News-Journal.
Then the video showed the officers drew their weapons drawn and pointed them in the driver’s direction after he ignored their commands, TMZ reported.
A third officer approached the passenger side of the vehicle with his weapon drawn and a moment later, the current All Elite Wrestling (AEW) performer opened the driver’s door.
The professional wrestler was “unsteady on his feet, displayed orbital sway, reeked of the odor of an alcoholic beverage, and was confused,” according to responding FHP officers.
The police report said Hardy admitted to drinking earlier in the day, The Daytona Beach News-Journal reported.
He voluntarily submitted to two roadside breathalyzer tests and blew a 0.294 and a 0.291, both of which are more than three times the legal limit of 0.08, TMZ reported.
The Daytona Beach News-Journal reported that it was Hardy’s third DUI arrest in the past 10 years and he wasn’t supposed to be driving.
He was arrested twice for DUI in his home state of North Carolina – in Charlotte and in Moore County – and also arrested once for public intoxication in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
The 44-year-old wrestler was arrested on June 13 for driving under the influence, driving on a suspended license, and violating a restriction which required him to have a DUI interlock device in his vehicle.
He was held in the Volusia County Jail on $3,500 bond, The Daytona Beach News-Journal reported.
Hardy is scheduled to appear in court on Thursday, according to court records.
