It's unclear how the arrest will impact his status with the WWE, but a rep for the company told ProWrestlingSheet, "Jeff Hardy is responsible for his own personal actions".

Hardy and his pro wrestling brother, Matt Hardy, are both from Cameron, N.C., in Moore County.

News broke overnight that WWE Superstar Jeff Hardy was arrested on Saturday, March 10 in Concord, North Carolina, for DWI, or driving while impaired - which, while sounding like DUI, or driving under the influence, isn't exactly the same thing.

According to an arrest report obtained by Channel 9, Hardy registered a.25 on a breathalyzer test. It was estimated by police on the scene that Hardy did $8,000 of damage to his 2016 Cadillac and $5,000 to the guardrail itself.

Hardy now has a court date in mid-April to answer the charge.

At 8:11pm, Hardy ran his vehicle off the road and struck a guardrail on Concord Parkway.

Hardy was fingerprinted and taken before a magistrate where he was given a written promise to appear in court.

It is also uncertain whether there are plans in place to bring Hardy back for this year's Wrestlemania - although some wrestling sites had reported that it was looking likely, especially given his all-clear following the surgery on his shoulder. In 2009 he was arrested for possession of anabolic steroids and controlled prescription pills. "We are investigating the matter and awaiting information from local law enforcement officials".
