UPDATE: AEW star Jeff Hardy enters a plea of not guilty for June 13 DUI


PWInsider acquired a copy of Jeff Hardy’s written notification that he was pleading not guilty to the DUI-related charges on June 13 in Volusia County, Florida, which is below:

The filing also noted, “Defendant, Jeffrey Nero Hardy, pursuant to rules 3.160(a), Florida Rules of Criminal Procedure, waives arraignment by filing this written plea of not guilty. Albritton v. White, 948 So. 2d 852, 854 (Fla. 2d DCA 2007). Defendant further waives the right to be present at all pretrial conferences” so it would appear the scheduled 7/5 arraignment hearing would not take place as initially scheduled.

According to PWInsider and F4WOnline, court records indicate that AEW star Jeff Hardy filed a written plea of not guilty on June 28. He is scheduled to be arraigned on July 5 in regard to his arrest for DUI on the morning of Monday, June 13 in Volusia County, Florida. 

It is being said that Jeff is out of jail on $3,500 bond, and that he entered a rehab facility back on June 21.

Jeff has been charged with one count each of driving under the influence of drugs/alcohol (this is his third offense in 10 years), driving with a canceled/suspended/revoked license, and violating restrictions placed on a driver’s license.

Back on June 14, AEW CEO and President Tony Khan released a statement that Jeff Hardy had been suspended from All Elite Wrestling without pay, and that his return is dependent upon him completing treatment and maintaining his sobriety.
