Jeff Hardy arrested for DUI at gunpoint
AEW Star Jeff Hardy was arrested - June 16, 2022
Jeff Hardy was arrested Monday morning for a DUI. This is his third in the past 10 years. He was released by WWE in December 2021 because of concerns for him. After his no compete cause was finished, he made his debut in AEW.
Following the arrest, Tony Khan, the owner of AEW has suspended Jeff without pay and he has been removed from all promotions for the company. He was scheduled to compete in a ladder match a few days later.
WWE Hall of Famer Booker T weighed in and told people this is not the time to abandon Jeff Hardy. He needs support more than ever. AEW was open to sending support to Jeff. They wanted to send him to rehab so he can get better and he can return once he has maintained sobriety.
