Jeff Hardy once again met face to face with his demons on Monday when he was arrested for driving under the influence. Hardy is a repeat offender and could be facing jail time for his poor decision. A new video posted to Reddit shows Hardy drinking whiskey as he performed at a wrestling convention the night before his arrest.
Hardy was performing a music set for fans. As he told the crowd about the importance of music as a uniting force, he took a huge swig of what he said was whiskey. Jeff then made a very ominous statement.
“Whiskey is my best friend and my worst enemy.”
Jeff Hardy was arrested the next morning for DUI. Police video showed Hardy wearing the same Jacksonville Jaguars shirt at the time he was pulled over. Jeff went on to test for a blood alcohol level over three times the legal limit.
The Charismatic Enigma was suspended without pay by AEW boss Tony Khan. To return, Hardy will have to undergo treatment for his substance abuse problems and stay sober. Jeff indicated to Khan that he was willing to accept his offer of help.
The video of Jeff Hardy downing whiskey while performing foreshadowed what was to come. Sadly, this is not the first time Jeff was arrested for driving drunk. Hopefully, he can find the help and support he needs to live a healthy life going forward.
